    That's pretty smart. I even have an OV Chipcard as I use Dutch public transport that often :)

    Handy that power lines are already run to existing lamp-posts. Can be a convenient place to install a EVSEs.
    Also, lamps can be upgraded to lower power LED lights, so the wiring gauge is still suitable for charging + lighting.

    most UK lamp-posts are wired in a daisy chain so little current is available from each one.... obviously, this wiring scheme could be changed for future installations if desired.

    A coworker said today when he was in a band and touring clubs along the east coast of the US they would sleep in their RV parked next to the large Waffle House signs which apparently they all have a plug at the base.
