Electric cars to create new peak hour when they all need a charge


Re: Off peak?

Isn't that already the case?

Here's an idea: abolish "peak" hours and have cost inversely proportional to line frequency.

Then you can set your fridges and car chargers to pause when the frequency drops below 60 Hz or 50 Hz. In fact, you could do that without the pricing changes.
