What a STUPID idea. How to wear out the EV's battery is what it should be

Not only wearing the battery out, but every electric car would have to
be fitted with a grid tie inverter to allow the power to be fed back
into the grid.
Who would pay for those.
Also, how would the power company make it known to the car owners
that they needed power at a particular time.
Whats in it for the car owners.
EV car batteries are the most expensive components of an electric car.
The last thing you want to be doing is charging and discharging them

And on top of that most vehicles are not being used overnight when the grid
doesn't NEED the extra power !

Duh! Then what's the problem? In the daytime you have solar generation.
Your wind power comes in at various times day and night. Vehicle batteries
soak up the extra generating capacity and discharge it as needed. This
displaces coal backup generators and everyone's happy.

This is "Because the cars are NOT available to supply power when the
GRID NEEDS it, during the day" they are out and about, being driven and
using up the Battery charge they got the night before. Duh... eCars are
a USER of Energy, not a Supplier of Energy... What part of this picture
can't you see..... OH, OH, I know, You want the eCar owners to leave
their cars plugged in during the Day too.... so why even buy an eCar,
why not just buy the Battery and let the Power Company suck you dry for
MORE Money.... Paying you $.05, for what they sold you for $.10....
Duh..... Do you have Blond hair....
