Comments lifted from an article by a fellow EV club member
"The gas vehicle must be driven to a public gas station to re-fuel and once there, then the gas pump can rapidly transfer energy to the gas tank in a few minutes. We think that is fast, but we overlook the inconvenience of having to make the trip to the gas station in the first place. With Electric vehicles, not only must we forget the gas pump concept, but also even the concept of going to a refueling station in the first place. An EV can charge almost anywhere, anytime (when not moving) from the electric grid which is the single most pervasive and ubiquitous network in the USA and because it is charging while parked at home and at work and elsewhere, the inconvenience of refueling is nothing more than the few seconds to plug and unplug.
how can you say
"It's a solution to the chicken-and-egg problem," Frank Lindh, general
"People won't buy electric vehicles unless they're confident there's a place
to charge up. And companies don't want to invest in charging infrastructure
unless people are buying electric vehicles."
It's like a cell phone, there are literally billions of charging stations in the USA, every 110v outlet. It's a mental paradigm shift.
what ev driver drives till empty and then fills up?
110v at work in 8 hrs should get 32 miles, 21hours per day the car doesnt move and is parked, 80+ miles range.
we just got charging stations -->at a federal facility<-- 110v. you dont hog the space, the spaces become available after 9:30am to all, the EV's using them are parked for 8 hours and DO NOT NEED 220v. cheap to install some conduit, a monitoring meter and a few 110v plugs
education of general public.
no longer drive to empty, go to specialized store to buy gas, drive to empty, repeat.
charge all time when parked, like a giant cell phone. 110v will suffice for way over 80% of public.
main job is to educate the public from mis-information and frankly oil company shills worried about their jobs disappearing like the whale oil lamp industry
