ELECTRIC VEHICLES AND THE ELECTRIC UTILITY COMPANY

This article describes the probable impacts of electric vehicles on the utilities which will provide their electricity. It draws on the results of a recent case study of the Southern California Edison Company. The impacts on the system if millions of electric vehicles were to appear in southern California over the next 20 years are described, and the conditions under which the findings may be transferred to utilities outside southern California are explained. The paper concludes by discussing the effect of incentives that the utility company or the state of California might provide to promote the sale of electric vehicles. (A)
