well at least someone
Is excited about building recharging stations...though these prices are at current levels with current demands. What is the price projections when demand increases? Will there be systems that handle a more on demand method where price for energy is cheaper when there is less demand on the grid?

He has no chance
People who buy electric cars use them within the normal range of their cars. They may charge the batteries when possible away from their house, but it is not something most people will do. He is thinking of a major shift to electric only vehicles that will never happen in this country. For long trips, just tow a small generator to take over when the batteries are dead.
