Don't really know where else to put this topic, but here goes. I'm curious on what the thoughts of the members here are on the presence of free public charging stations that many are expecting to pop up in the next few years. Seems to me a lot of people are taking the viewpoint that these are, or should be, provided for free recharges. As more and more electric vehicles hit the roads, and there is more and more demand for recharge points, what are the chances that people are still going to provide them for free? The chargers cost money, electricity costs money, at some point people are going to expect to get paid for providing this service. I can see a point when they are credit-card based pay stations. Certainly if I were a fuel station I would consider installing rapid charge stations, particuarly if it were located along an interstate. I don't know, law of supply and demand, at some point public charging won't be free anymore, and it might be naive to expect it to remain so. Opinions?
