    Single public chargers won’t help. What if you get there are someone else is on the charger or worse yet
    someone waiting ahead of you? What if the charger is broken and you really needed it to complete the trip? Study Tesla charger setups. They get it.

    Free overnight charging: is there any more info on this? How will they determine energy use and when will it kick in?

    How much would it cost a month to charge the car up. How much would it cost to install the station in my garage?
