This is a good example of poor education.
From what I've read the charging stations can tell the cars charger to charge at a slower rate if for example they are charging at a peek demand time or you have a lower amp service at that location.
Having electric space heater under peoples desks is going to make a larger impact then the charging of electric cars.

At my job they already paid for an outlet for my electric car charging, figured the 25 cents a day it costs to have me plug in was worth it.
