Drivers of electric Nissans will get the chance to charge for free

The Times reports on a collaboration between Nissan and Ovo Energy which will allow drivers of electric Nissans to charge for free. The only catch being that they have to allow OVO to discharge their car batteries to feed grid demand.

This actually makes a lot of sense; there are times, when the wind is blowing and the sun shining, when there is more electricity than there is demand for it. Giving it away when there is abundance and taking some back to sell when prices are high is far more sensible than the current arrangements which see government pay wind farm operators to stop generating when there is too much wind. Slowly, the market will find a way of using all the cheap electricity produced by wind and solar.
