Re: Chevy Volt: 1 Year Later?
I also want to throw out why plug-ins are especially important in areas that are using nuclear power for generation (like many parts of SC). Nuclear stations can't ramp down their output overnight when demand is low like coal plants. The energy that is created is effectively wasted. With plug-ins/electrics charging at night, you end up taking advantage of power that is already being generated and wasted and remove the fossil fuel use from the equation. This is a huge net positive for the whole system. I would love to see nuclear plant running utilities offer some purchasing incentives for electrics since they would be able to get more users and still come out ahead later.
