"80 percent of EV charging happens at home, often overnight ... but that charging pattern is at odds with how electricity is increasingly being generated."— Shannon Osaka (@shannonosaka) September 22, 2022
I wrote about a study out of Stanford on how large-scale EV charging will affect the grid. https://t.co/mI6jQ1u6qJ
Most electric vehicle owners charge their cars and trucks at night. But that could become a real problem, @shannonosaka writes. Here's what the U.S. can do before the strain on the power grid becomes too much to bear: https://t.co/n2UKlzVsvE— Juliet Eilperin (@eilperin) September 22, 2022
Actually, the wind blows all night and charging EV’s with it is super efficient battery storage.— All Our Energy (@AllOurEnergy) September 22, 2022
Wind not mentioned once?
It’s like a writer set out to ignore a solution in search of a problem, except.. wind. https://t.co/Q38HzDzu4t
A new study from Stanford researchers suggests that the vast majority of electric-car drivers who plug in at night should alter their charging behavior to protect California’s electrical grid. https://t.co/GUNzzUT7ii— San Francisco Chronicle (@sfchronicle) September 22, 2022
A new Stanford study turns everything we've been hearing about electric vehicle charging on its head 🙃 https://t.co/S4erT1qsOs— Sara Libby (@SaraLibby) September 22, 2022
“But in a study published today in the scientific journal Nature Energy, a team of researchers concluded that most drivers should instead shift to daytime charging at work or at public charging stations.”#EV #EVcharging #climatehttps://t.co/deldiNZxtB— Kathryn Phillips (@KPinCalifornia) September 22, 2022
Fascinating new Stanford study says we should be charging our cars in the daytime, not at night. Which raises all kinds of questions/issues about workplace charging. https://t.co/OK0FhibAXb @dustingardiner— Kate Galbraith (@KateGalbraith) September 22, 2022

For years, electric-car owners have been told to charge in the middle of the night, incentivized through lower utility rates.
But in a new study, researchers conclude that most drivers should instead shift to daytime charging.
