Get paid to NOT charge your electric car (til later)


Recommended Posts

(Bloomberg) -- In a new pilot program, a California utility is paying drivers of BMW electric cars to delay charging their vehicles when the power grid is under pressure.

One hundred owners of BMW AG's i3 hatchback receive $1,000 upfront to participate in Pacific Gas & Electric Co.'s 18-month trial, which starts this week and is confined to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Wouldn't that indicate that 'the grid' is now readily NOT eager to embrace an inordinate amount of additional electric vehicles; one of the original arguments against 'electrics' (in the first place).
