Re: [EVDL] Hyperbole from "Infrastructure Industry"

Yeah, you can argue that. Though, at least it is fairly open and much
easier/cheaper to implement than J1773 (inductive).

It does make plugging in your car a safer and friendlier experience,
and standardizes on a plug so maybe in the future you don't have to
carry a pile of adapters.

Also, if there is profit in installing EVSEs there will be more
pressure to have them installed everywhere, hence more charging
opportunities.

They also enable added features like remote monitoring and control,
networking, smart grid etc.

It's not all bad.
