Can the U.S. power grid handle the EV boom?

Key Takeaway: Distributed generation and battery storage enables microgrid technology, like the kind our team at Adon Renewable has developed, to be an extremely beneficial resource to the U.S. grid. Batteries can help store excess energy and by utilizing distributed generation where power is created on-site where it is used, you can achieve great efficiency and you also do not have to build costly transmission lines that require billions in development and maintenance.
