Possible if your electric bill was nearly $500 with out the EV.

People are stupid.
I figure charging a single electric vehicle (car) would add no more than $10 a month to ones electric bill.
Why would any one own an electric vehicle if it increased ones electric bill by hundreds of dollars every month?
