Curbside car chargers should start showing up next year

Given the limited range in fully electric cars, charging points are going to be an important part of the infrastructure in the future. GE has hired a designer to create the “WattStation”, a charger designed to top up your new electric car in four to eight hours.

It’s good to see someone stepping up and building out the infrastructure though, of course we all know that electric cars aren’t the ideal solution (that power has to come from somewhere) but it definitely beats gasoline based cars. While the WattStation can recharge your car while you’re at work, it’s still not as easy to use as a gas pump.
