Electric Ridesharing Benefits the Grid, and EVgo Has the Data to Prove It
Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are offering more electric vehicles, boosting the need for fast charging. That may help the grid in high-solar states like California.
Electric-vehicle charging at scale could be a blessing or a curse for the grid.
In the best-case scenario, plug-in vehicles charge up at times that align with needs of the power grid. In the worst case, they strain the system, creating a new challenge for grid operators.
