    How about this for an interesting Charge point?

    Found an interesting charge point for EV's in the middle of Kosciusko National Park - Snowy Mountains NSW Australia.

    Built in 1936 a Pelton hydro wheel driven by a local stream that disappears into the side of a mountain (cave). This place is in the middle of nowhere down a dirt track.

    Anyone have any interesting charge points to share?

    That's cool!

    Thinking to myself... if the power goes out, there's a fire hydrant down the street...
