I heard Allen (alan?) Cacconi (sp?), the developer of the EV1 controller, left GM because of their insistance on using an idiotic charger that couldn't just plug into a 110 or 220 outlet. So, that guy "hacked" an electric car to plug into 110 (110 that came from solar). The hack would have been completely unnecessary if they would have done the charging interface right in the first place.
