FERC Head Sees Need to Integrate Electric Cars into Power Grid
WASHINGTON -- Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Jon Wellinghoff said Monday regulators and the automobile industry must integrate electric vehicles into the national power grid.
The call by the newly appointed FERC chairman is in line with President Barack Obama's plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and wean the country off of crude imports, and comes as the President announced two major initiatives that would increase vehicle fuel efficiency standards.
FERC has the power to implement rate structures that could encourage the growth of the hybrid industry.
