Not to mention the cost of the sheer waste to the grid that would add up. People use LED lights to save power, good luck making that up with bulb changes. No way would I use it for an EV.
It really depends on the cost. Given equals charging at home is very simple. At a reported efficiency0f 90% charging at home is cheaper.
The rich may ignore the loss but not me. Power is expensive. I pay $.16 per kwh Industrial pricing is more. Maybe in the northwest with very cheap power but not in Southern California.
