- Mostly my feet, occasionally a Tesla
For Tesla, the "idle fee" only applies if the Supercharger lot is more than 50 % full.This kind of thing is why I don't think electric cars are quite there yet. Either have enough spaces or allow a grace period because nobody is going to stand in the corner of a parking lot for their lunch. Shopping centers, ok fine. I don't think putting chargers in the places they do is a good longterm solution. I think it will become a problem like Waze did for some towns with traffic building up in places people live instead of the main roads that are there for the purpose of getting through, likewise you'll eventually get a bunch of people charging their cars in weird places. I mean, how nice would it be to have people refueling their ICE cars in a park or just around the corner from where you live/eat/work? It just seems bone-headed with how they're being installed.
