If you follow EVTV's work on fast charging (they favor CHAdeMO over Tesla's Supercharger) you find that trying to dump 20-40 kilowatt/hr into a car in 20 minutes is akin to getting hit by a bolt of lightning.

DailyKanban's Ed Niedermeyer attended UofO, where Douglas C. Niedermeyer appeared in the movie Animal House. Related? But the part was played by Mark Metcalf.
A sure way to irritate him is to bring that up. I recall one auto industry official did when answering criticism posed in one of his articles.

Rather childish, actually, and a way to mask the fact that he had no good answer.


The generator issue might or might not be a systemic issue. It could just be laziness on the post of attendants, rather than a policy shortcoming.
