Check out EV Battery Amortization Costs and Vehicle To Grid https://t.co/wUetkTGBo3 from @pluginamerica

There is interest in having electric vehicles participate in the grid in an active, bi-directional way, referred to as vehicle-to-grid or V2G. Instead of firing up expensive on-demand generators that burn fossil fuels, perhaps we could use EVs as a power source to handle demand spikes in a way that could save utilities (and thus consumers) money and reward EV owners for their participation. There are many issues involved, including how much the utilities should expect to pay EV owners for the use of their battery packs. To start the conversation, we have analyzed data from the Plug In America EV Battery studies to estimate what it would cost an EV owner in battery pack wear when the utility cycles power in and out. We have battery pack replacement costs for the LEAF and Model S which currently fall around $300 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of capacity. From the Plug In America b...
