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

Re: Off peak?

Pay less if charging in the wee hours overnight?

Only works if that's a significantly lower demand. Replace all ICE cars by electric and the charging demand over a year will be around 270TWh, about 2/3 that of normal grid use (domestic + business). Night time car-charging demand won't be off-peak anymore, it will be the same as daytime peak. So no discount.
