Re: What about the downsides?

The "carbon emissions" are moved, not saved and may even increase due to grid losses, charging losses and battery losses. UNLESS you have most electricity sourced from non-fossil sources.

Which we do. It was in the news earlier this year that for the first time, at one point more than 50% of our electricity came from renewables....and that's only going to increase....
