If some form of an electric car is in our future,then how will we plug them into electric outlets?
If you live in the suburbs and have a two car garage, then you should have no problem. How do people do who live in a city and park their cars on the streets keep their cars all juiced up? I lived in Calgary, Canada for one very long winter and most cars had block heaters that drivers plugged into outlets that were in most parking lots. Another question is, of course, who pays for the electricity in these situations?
Is this why LL's utility poles were jumping for joy?

The whole of the electric grid and how power is generated will have to change before
electric cars can even think about becoming a mainstream vehicle. study

Put millions of electric cars on the road now and watch the grid collapse. affraid affraid
