Good question. But, to start with, rcenoigze that twhatever we do,it will be agradual transition. Electric cars will be on the market before the end of the decade but only a few thousand a year at first and then build up volume over time. So there's time to build new power generating plants.But there are other options than just large (traditional technology) power plants. To take one example, solar power (I'll use this because its the one I know best but here are others: wind, tidal, geothermal,etc).In California, more power is already needed and soon. But solar power can supply (estimates) up to 30% of the demand and even more of the peakdemand (that occurs when its hot and sunny when solar is at its most efficient). That's a BIG chunk of the power requirements. And it has the advantage that it can be buildt quickly installing solar panels takes days, not years and as market demand builds (its already rising rapidly) the scale of new power generation rises with it. Point is, we get the power starting more or less immediately.The real key is going to be developing an infrastructure that caters to electric cars the way our oil/gas/service station industry caters to gasoline powered cars now. And that will take time but again, it will be years before we have enough electric cars to matter, so in a sense its a self-correcting problem. Someof this infrastructure is already under development. Here's one model of how some of that infrastructure might work in practice (and, for the sake of arguement, assume its all solar power, weather permitting):You've left your car plugged in to recharge sunday afternoon after the family got pack from church. So, Monday morning, its at full charge. But bad news the traffic is a mess, so by the time you get to work, you're down to half charge. No problem. The owner of the parking deck (enterprising soul) has installed sollar arrays on the roof and plug-ins (with meters to tote up the fees) for customers. You park plug in your car and its recharged long before you get off work. And the rest of the week works pretty much the same. It's not a 100% solar system but 80% of your power at home and from your car comes from solar panels and while paying for those home solar panels was a push a few years before, they've long since returned the investment in lower energy costs. Between that ant the savings on transportation (even the electricity you buy from the parking concession is cheaper than gas used to be) you pay half for energy you did in 2007.Granted, this may take 20 years but that or something similar is the way things are headed. Almost makes you feel sorry for the oil companies. Almost!
