Energy attorney Morten Lund was quoted in Utility Dive in an article titled “‘This will change the nature of load’: what California’s zero emission vehicle order means for the power sector,” published September 23, 2020. The article discusses ways in which the California power sector might adapt in the wake of the issuance by Gov. Gavin Newsom of an executive order adopting a goal that by 2035 all new passenger vehicles sold in the state will emit zero emissions.

Progress towards 100% zero-emission passenger vehicle sales in 2035 will translate to a 9% increase in electricity demand by 2030. According to Lund, it is reasonable to expect that more electric vehicles (EV) on the road will increase the demand for renewable energy.

Lund also pointed out that more EVs in use would create a greater demand for distributed, residential-level solar, of particular appeal to consumers in that charging their EVs during times of peak solar – when there is excess energy supply and low demand – can allow them to reduce fueling costs.
