I agree with requiring all new multi-family buildings with parking to include electric vehicle chargers, but I do not hear discussions about where the additional electricity is going to come from to power millions of cars in the next few years.
Today, in the summer when we have a heat wave, we don’t have enough electricity to power our AC units; what happens when all of those new cars are plugged in during those days? I don’t see California building more power plants.
