    Even as a big supporter of electric cars and the need for government to support green initiatives I think this is ridiculous. People use level two chargers to charge their electric vehicles overnight at home – they are just too slow. And even installing level 3 chargers in public places doesn’t make much sense until Car manufactors can agree on a common standard.

      L2 is still good. If you are out shopping or seeing a movie, out with friends, etc, your car is still sitting there doing nothing, may as well charge it. Also, only higher end (or the newest) vehicles support L3, while I would say 99% support L2.

      If I know I am going somewhere after work I park at a public L2 station and by the time I’m done work my car is at 100% again.

      You might be confusing L2 with L1.

      L2 is 220v vs L1 is regular 110v outlet. I use L1 to charge Volt overnight. Yes, it is slow, but I don’t care – I sleep and recharge during the night and my car does the same 🙂
