In lieu of extension cords

I can’t even come close to be surprised at this:

In our little community of 150 homes, some “sustainability” folks formed a HOA committee and they decided we should have a charging station. Hilarity ensued when the quotes came in — just to install the hardware: $75K to $300K. If used regularly, power bill is over $10K annually.

Rather a lot of people have turned up in fora to boast of how much they’re not spending on gas, and that’s fair, but I’m betting most of them have no idea what they’re paying for traveling kilowatt-hours.

    Or where those kwH are coming from. Around here it would likely be coal.

    Around here, it’s a combination of wind and natural gas, which doesn’t even sound good when you think about it.
