Or force the price of electricity up.  Looked at your electric bill

build a new coal-fired power plant to meet increasing demand.  They'v
shelved the project due to high steel and other costs.  If the
electric car is the answer, the question must be "How can we possibly
waste more material and make the power grid less reliable?".

Charge them at night, when there's excess capacity

  Which is the most likely practice anyway.  But even more of
an answer to grid reliability, is that those with excess PV capacity
will charge up during the day, instead of effecting the grid.
