Sunday Musing: Would You Let Government, Your Utility, Control When You Could Charge?

From
Transport Evolved: Take 2
.

This week, we heard from the UK, where the government wants to mandate smart charging stations to help reduce the demand on the electrical grid.

On one level, it sounds great – as it helps ensure that EVs are only charged using clean power – but on the flip side, we’re not sure we’d like someone else telling us when to charge. What do you think?
