Charge at the lights!

BMW has developed LED street lighting that doubles as EV charging posts.

They are to set up a pilot in Munich.

These additional charging stations can be used by as many drivers as possible, regardless of vehicle model and electricity provider, BMW said.

Two street lights are already installed in front of the BMW headquarters. Drivers will be able to pay to charge their cars via a mobile phone app.
They will launch an app to guide you to charging points.
I bet they will be pretty easy to find at night

Didn't someone suggest that on here? Maybe it was parking meters, but I am pretty sure someone suggested setting up street lights to charge EVs.

Depends on the street light, many in America already have outlets. Is the wooden ones that are a miss. The metal and concrete ones have outlets.
