I agree with this. What would happen if New York adopted this, too? Could the northeast tax the grid and have another power outage like a few summers ago?

Did this documentary talk about how much people's electric bills went up with charging their car? I've never heard, but I wonder if it saved money. Is power per kW/h cheaper than gas in MPG?
