Driving Smart Growth: Electric Vehicle Adoption and Off-Peak Electricity Rates
AbstractThis study examines the benefits that can emerge specifically in Connecticut during a shift from fossil-fueled to electricity-charged vehicles, with attention to their adoption's affect on electricity rates and transmission lines, and EV potential to reduce green house gases (GHGs). This study further demonstrates the value of a transiton to variable electric rates, to enable drivers to use smart-recharge mechanisms under off-peak rates, in preference to maintaining the current flat rates.
