PWP Web : EV Program - Inductive Charging

Conductive plugs used for EV charging are typically standard outlets (110vac and 220 vac) but the newer 'recharging station' plugs will probably require some sort of special plug in order to work. Everyone wants their $...

Plugs are standard for a reason. All you have to do to get your $ is put a cover over the outlet that wont unlock without payment. As long as no one tells Apple (R) about this we will hopefully continue with open source "holes"
