Utilities Will Be Able to Take a Load off Thanks to Solar EVs

In a recent Energy Central article, I discussed how EVs can reduce power utility load by acting as a battery that collects and stores energy from the owner’s home during off-peak times, and provides that stored energy back to the home for use during peak periods, enabling utilities to offload some demand. The process of EVs sending power to the home is known as vehicle to grid or V2G and, as the name implies, it can also be set up to send power directly to the grid, giving utilities even more support during peak load times.
