Electric cars aren't taking off quite yet, at least not the way our leaders would like them to.
They're just too expensive and inconvenient right now, and our infrastructure isn't ready for them to be in the mainstream.

Politicians want utility customers to foot the bill for wealthy electric car drivers because the private sector isn't really interested in them either.

They have their hearts set on a $1 billion car charging scheme, which ratepayers would pay for.
So don't be surprised if your rates go up, the state sure loves to spend your hard earned money!
