That's what I'm talking about RD. I'd love to see grid connected EVs be part of the storage solution to the renewable problem.

Incentivize the EV owners to charge during excess renewable generation or off-peak, and incentivize them to sell back a portion of the energy when there's not enough renewable energy or during peak use.
