How is the electrical grid in the state of California going to handle so many electric cars when they can't handle the electrical demand from very hot weather?

As you may know, California is going to outlaw the sale of electric cars within just a few years. This is to benefit the climate, and I get it. As you may also know, it’s been very hot in the west for the past few summers. Right now, parts of California are over 105 degrees – record heat or near record heat. They’re asking residents to please try to minimize use of air conditioners, and some businesses are closing early to help (by being able to shut down their cooling systems).

How is the state going to handle the electrical demand for having to charge vehicles, when they can’t handle the electrical demand right now?

I’m all for electric cars and helping the climate, but I’m not comprehending how this is going to work.
