California May Be Forced Into Using Electric Cars to Charge Struggling Power Grid

The state of California may have to resort to an “unconventional” solution of forcing owners of electric vehicles to allow their cars to help charge the power grid.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) sees “great potential” for EVs to act as power grid backup generators.

“The grid needs those electric vehicles. We need to make it available, and it can be a huge resource,” PG&E added.

“PG&E believes in a future where everyone is driving an electric vehicle (EV) and where that EV serves as a backup power option at home and more broadly as a resource for the grid,” the statement to Just the News read.

“Not only is this a huge advancement for electric reliability and climate resiliency, it’s yet another advantage of clean-powered EVs, which are so important in our collective battle against climate change.”

The company said tapping electric cars eliminates “the need for non-renewable resources” like fossil fuels.

While California is famous for its green energy, its also infamous for its rolling blackouts

In 2020, thousands of Californians briefly lost power in rolling blackouts as the power grid went down, ABC reported.

PG&E’s 2030 Climate Strategy Report has a goal for the grid “to quickly and safely power at least 3 million EVs— or about 12,000 GWh of EV-related electric load.”

Two million EVs are being sought for “vehicle-grid integration (VGI) applications, allowing EVs to be a cornerstone of electric reliability and climate resilience for PG&E customers broadly.”

California isn’t able to generate enough electricity to meet its pending EV mandate, according to the Pacific Research Institute

12,000 GWh is nearly 18% of its total renewable electricity generated in 2021.

Even California Governor Gavin Newsom admitted his state’s power grid has a liability “issue.”

Due to California’s green agenda, it improves more electricity from outside the state than any other state despite having an abundance of oil.

California led the nation in power outages last year, with 142 major events. , according to data from the U.S. Department of Energy.
