EVs and Utilities: Friend or Foe? How About Both

Mar 13, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Despite what you may have heard, electric vehicles (EV) are coming: More than one million were sold in 2023, and 48 million are expected to be on the road by 2030. The next few years of grid infrastructure will determine if they become a drain on the grid, or can be leveraged as a massive resource. Americans use about 369 million gallons of gas per day, so as garages morph into new-age gas stations, the grid—and drivers—must be prepared. It's up to energy customers to work together with utilities to influence the success of the EV revolution—the future of the grid and our planet depend on it.
