% Here is where those anti-EV snarky types will attack you for having a
plugin. IMO:
-if you drive a pih do not plug in so you can state you are using its
on-board ice same as their gas car, and like the way local utilities have
placed diesel generators out to keep local businesses up

-EVs should be fully charged by 2pm, and do not plug in again until after

-be in conservative mode: drive slower saves range to need less of a
recharge, and plan for a longer charge at a lower powered EVSE setting
(charge at 3kW instead of 6kW - except if you charge on ToU which is in the
middle of the night. Charging in the a.m. is better than in the p.m.)

-Note: all your non-plugin driving co-workers and neighbors are being
instructed to unplug their life style (see below), so they will be irritable
at anything and everyone (like a person going through internet or TV
withdrawals, etc.)

-Remember it is not EVs fault electricity is in high demand. It is the CA
utilities' short shortsightedness, profit-1st thinking that has the grid in
bad shape when demand is high.
