This may be the next best solution. But they still don't see the impact on the grid.

There must be a catch somewhere.  It would be neat to have battery banks near photovoltaic farms to provide 24 hour power.

Charging with wind/solar " at the farm" would be good. I was saying that if the government and EV makers think they can just make Electric vehicles and sell them willy nilly, without doing something to the grid to allow charging a billion EV's without brownouts or worse, then they are smoking locoweed.
