The heat wave, electric cars and the power grid

According to the Associated Press,
A lengthy, blistering heat wave that is blanketing the eastern half of the United States is putting significant stress on the nation's power grid as homeowners and businesses crank up their air conditioners.
Just out of curiosity, what will happen to the power grid if a significant number of Americans ever start buying electric cars that need to be plugged in every day?

conservative socialist?
