Businessman Creates Tesla 'Charging Road' From Beijing to Guangzhou

some tidbits...

Faced with the lack of electric-car charging stations in China after purchasing a new Tesla Model S, a Chinese businessman has built a network of Tesla Motors charging stations from Beijing to Guangzhou. When Zong, 44, spent 730,000 yuan (about $117,600) to create what he called the first "electric vehicle charging road," according to Chinese news site Caixin.
......
But instead of this temporary solution, Zong contacted the Tesla Motors executive in charge of Chinese operations, Wu Bixuan, to buy 20 charging stations, according to Caixin.
......
Using Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter, as well as popular messaging app WeChat, Zong found property owners willing to forego one parking space in their lot to house a donated Tesla charging station.
......
According to Zong, seven hours of charging would cost each property owner around 30 yuan (about $5) in electricity. He let the owners determine whether they would charge a fee, or offer the service for free, according to Caixin. Zong noted that if, for instance, a hotel decided to host a charging station, it could potentially increase business, as drivers would have to stay overnight while their electric car finished charging.
