I was thinking that someone needs to invent a cheap way to bill users for electricity. Right now, people are just giving away electricity to EV owners; instead of paying to install an expensive ChargePoint type system, they say "here's an outlet". Its not really an incentive to EV owners because they already bought the EV, and this puts limits on how many EVs they can support. At the very minimum, a device is needed < $100 that can a) connect to the internet (WiFi, LTE, or ethernet) b) turn on/off power to an outlet c) identify a user and bill them (bluetooth/app?) d) take a fee to support the server infrastructure e) pay the owner of the station I don't know how metering works, but the simplest way is to take the expected load on the circuit and bill them the number of minutes that it is "ON" and then disconnect the power when the minutes are up. A meter would better, but not if it costs $1,000 - maybe those current claps could be installed internally and counted electronically. Then, instead of having "doing EV owners a favor", apartment owners can recoup their costs and make a small profit. So at its most basic level it will cost $100 plus the cost of installation of the outlet ($700?) and they can make back their cost in a year. This is what chargepoint does, but it costs about $7,000 and they'd have to charge a lot to recoup those costs. Someone with electronics experience should make this.
