    Could we power all cars entirely from wind power

    The big issue with electric vehicles is people want to charge overnight, Connors said.. Currently, most electricity is produced with the use of steam turbines fired through gas, coal or petroleum. Rather than allow the turbines to idle overnight companies keep the generators turning throughout the dark hours, which produces a huge surplus of electricity -- even at reduced capacity -- when
