why do people make such a big deal about things like plug in vehicles, but not things like satilite tv, satilite boxes run 24/7, drawing around 30 watts even when they are turned "off", this is about 1/3 of what it should be taking to charge my electric car every day! if you eliminate all the parasitic loads in the average house it would more then make up for the amount that an electric car would use to charge, no one is making a big deal about that stuff!
