Can California's electric grid hold up if VW really did replace all those vehicles with electric cars?
You generally charge them at night, not during peak usage hours. Of course, Californians could also install a solar panel, SolarCity is offering them at no money down.
Even hydro capacity has decreased, as more dams are broken than built because they apparently bother the fishies.
As someone who lives in the west I would love to see windmills on farmland and solar power installed on rooftops replace dams. Free flowing rivers are an incredible asset, it's not just about fish.
