        Sounds like maybe they don't know how it works since they have to BEG you to stop using electricity in "first world" California. Is this another one of Gavin Newsom's freedoms? Freedom from air conditioning?

          A dryer uses almost the same electricity as a level 2 charging car, and there's way more dryers than there are cars. The grid has never failed because of people using dryers. Why? Because dryers are a predictable daily or weekly load. There are no known events that cause everyone to turn on their dryers one day, and turn them off the next. The grid is designed around them.

          This will be the same for electric cars.

          Now, is there an event that causes all ACs in a region to turn on? How about turn off? Can this event cover the entire state? Can these event be predicted months in the future for every day?

            What are you smoking and can I have some?
            the grid works via supply and demand. If demand overtakes supply you see blackouts. brown outs occur to prevent demand out growing supply thus preventing a full blackout.

            You're retarded logic takes a shit because if they are expecting increased demand and cant meet it. How the fuck are they going to meet it if everyone has a car that needs power as well? What new powerplants are under construction to handle such loads? If 20 million people plugged into charge at night for their commute that's over a giga watt of added production needed. Hoover damn produces about 2 giga watts of power.

            Where is califonia building a gigawatt facility of added production as in they can't decomission other facilities when they build a new one. That's the fucking question you retard. The answer is they aren't and can't support fully electric car eco system.

            I'm not sure what dryer is pulling 30 amps at 240 volts ... I have both and nothing comes close to my electric car load. Your comparison is shit.

              The USA ran out of toilet paper in 2020. When the population is double, does that mean we'll be unable to supply everyone with toilet paper? No, it's an event that goes above the typical baseline.

              Electric cars will also be a consistent baseline that will increase the demand over the next few decades. It will be an easy problem to solve. ACs product massive spikes in the grid that are uneconomical to build for. Reminder that electric companies are for profit, and there is no reason why they wouldn't want to consistently sell electricity from car charging.

              Jesus Christ I fucking hate you midwits.
              A dryer doesn't run all day. AC units do. The amount of overlapping peak consumption is all day, and sometimes night. Your dryer runs for 45 minutes.
              Do you charge an electric car for 45 minutes or all night?

              Which proves my point. Electric cars need to charge on average 20 minutes a day at level 2 for their average 40 miles per day driving. Level 1 takes longer but uses less electricity so it balances out.

              This. My AC has been going non-stop in my apartment since June; maybe a few nights where it kicks off.
              The only time I've seen dryers run continuously is when they're in laundromats, but commercial dryers are usually gas powered.

              There's no way we can supply the growing population with EVs like that. It's like trillions of dollars to a foreign nation in just batteries alone, and an electric grid that's experiencing rolling brown/blackouts and begging/forcing its citizenry to ration electricity can't take on 17.8 million EVs needing a charge every night.

            32A 240V constant line load for roughly 8 hours and a startup peak draw of 20A on 120V circuit for an electric dryer are not the same thing. The coil only operates for a few minutes per dry cycle. Jesus fuck. Also, most people have god damn gas dryers in California you stupid fuck. Not to mention California has lost its load-following ability by shuttering nuclear and just now realized how fucked they are and delayed Diablo Canyon shut down for 5 years. Just shut the fuck up. Shut up. Shut the fuck up. Realize you are a dumb fuck and know fuckall about utilities. God damn, why are people so arrogant in their ignorance. SHUT THE FUCK UP
