    Right - but that's sort of the opposite of what you said before. Those transmission losses INCREASE under conditions of high load. In other words, they are wasting a lot of electricity during high usage, but less during times of low usage.
    It will utilize otherwise-unused CAPACITY - not energy. Charging EV's at night will increase wasted energy, just because the load on the grid will go up. However, we will not need to build new power plants to support them.[/quote]
