Thought of the Day: 110-Volt Charging For All?

Welcome to Thought of the Day! Join Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield as she poses a question for you all to think about and answer.

Today, we’re evaluating the benefits of low-speed 110-volt charging for electric cars parked for a full day, and ask if all new parking lots — be they public or private — include 110-volt outlets as standard for each and every parking space in order to facilitate slow-speed charging during the day.

Is it a good idea that could alleviate stress on L2 and high-power charging stations, or is 8-hours of 110-volt charging just not practical for everyday use?

Watch the video above, and leave your thoughts in the Comments below.
