I see that there is a post on the challenges of owning a Model ☰ without a garage but how many are buying one without having either a garage or driveway? I live in a row house and don't have a driveway or even guaranteed parking on the street so it's possible that someone's car could be in front of my home at any time.
Nevertheless, I am thinking of installing a charger on a post on our property beside the sidewalk. This would mean that every time I wanted to charge I would have to place a mat over the sidewalk for the cord. Is this feasible? It is ridiculous? Depending on the amount of usage, I *might* even make it a de facto public charging spot but my electricity bills will decide that.
There are other options, like putting a charger on a driveway on the right-of-way beside my house but I like the idea of people getting used to seeing electric cars being charged in a very public way. Any thoughts or advice from others in the same situation?
