Electric Vehicles are Not a Problem, Says Texas Grid Operator

Can the Power Grid Handle Electric Cars?
EV skeptics sometime point out that “our power grid can’t handle electric cars”. They might be right if all cars were magically transformed into plug-ins overnight, but the chances of that happening are pretty slim (though it would make for a nice xmas miracle!). No, if the changeover is gradual, everything that I’ve been reading on the topic for the past few years tells me that the power grid should be able to adapt just fine. In fact, since electric vehicles are mostly recharged at night – during the off-peak period for the power grid – their impact is a lot more manageable than, say, big screen TVs, which are all on during the power grid’s peak.
