I approached the building owners with the suggestion of EV charging spots, or even allowing us to use the 120V outlets in the garage.
The response: "God put enough oil on this Earth to last until the Rapture."
I've thought about lugging around a noisy generator and then running it for a few hours in front of certain businesses. If they complain I'd say "sorry, there aren't any places to charge around here." Maybe that would convince them. But I still really doubt anything ever would.
If only there were a law there had to be a CHAdeMO at every gas station, I'd be able to go anywhere!
