Car Owners To Sell Back Surplus Energy To Power Companies?

A wholesaler in the energy market is teaming up with University of Delaware to form a new company which aims to bring electric cars that allow car owners to sell back the surplus of electric generation to the power companies.  How are they going to do that is beyond my knowledge, but these folks seem to be pretty sure that they can bring this technology to the mass very soon.  According to professor Willett Kempton, who came up with the concept, says that 30% of all the cars in the United States use this technology will be able to produce the same capacity of all electric generation within the United States.  It’s a bold claim, but I like it.
