Re. Alan Sanderson's letter Where is the EV charging? (Castanet, May 18)
In response to Alan Sanderson asking where are the EV charging stations at the new Kelowna Costco, why should there be any at all?
Unlike gasoline, electricity is available at home. There should be very little need for charging stations elsewhere. Maybe a few for out-of-town travellers and at hotels and motels, but not at every retail outlet parking lot. And certainly not for free!
EV drivers must pay their way—for parking, charging and roads. Owning an EV is not a ticket for a free ride.
Parking on the street instead of on your own property will be problematic if you own an EV. Where will you charge?
