Pacific Gas & Electric, California's largest utility, is working on a plan to add around 4,600 megawatts of wind power as part of a larger scheme to incentivize electric car ownership in the Golden State. Using smart meters, the cars would charge during off-peak hours and the batteries would be used as storage units for the company to draw from during peak demand periods, with the cars' owners receiving credits on their bills for the juice drawn out.
