Thanks, absolutely correct.  I got unconscionably careless with my powers of 
10.  That shouldn't have passed the sniff test here.  Sorry.

For sure, 2 megawatts is much more manageable than 2 gigawatts, though 10 or 
20 megawatts to run an EV "filling station" is still a pretty substantial 
amount of power.  

Using a battery as a load leveler would certainly help, but also would add 
operating expense.  It also makes me think about the PV folks who tout the 
benefits of grid intertie for leveling THEIR loads.  :-)
