Well, I did say fast charging, meaning DCFC. Demand cost is too much and income too little.

The only way to make money is to displace gas pumps and charge 500% markup on junk food. Forcing people to spend 30 minutes+ presents new sales opportunities.

There's no money in charging, but perhaps in a captive (bored) audience.
