    State Grid to invite private capital to build electric-car charging stations

    I think it is positive for EV industry.

    Also last night I watched CCTV 2(China Official Financial channel), A special report saying Tesla fair and reasonable pricing in China triggered a probe in profiteering of existing car companies.

    Seems like Elon stir things up a bit. Well done!:cool:

    I wonder if some of that private capital will be for Superchargers.

    does Tesla allow for that? I think Tesla will demo the super charger network initially, but it has to resort private capital to improve the coverage and density later on. Otherwise it'll cost too much money, the same should apply for US and EU market also.

    It is using private capital. Tesla capital. It does not cost too much money. Every 8 Model S pays for a Supercharger. But the ratio of Teslas sold to superchargers will be far higher.
