Please help me with the logic used by the Town Council. So, the Atherton residents drive the up to two miles from their >$7 Million home in their greater than $60K EV & then the Town uses tax $ to buy them a free battery charge??? Shouldn't they just drive the 0 to 2 miles home and recharge at home?
The Town should save the $54,000 they will spend on the chargers & spend it on solving their Housing Element problem. In addition, Peninsula Clean Energy will recoup their $5,000 "rebate" many times over by selling their electricity to the Town forever. Perhaps there should be a fee for the individual to use these "free" (paid for by Atherton's taxpayers) Charging Stations.

but, they're "saving the world". Hope they don't hurt their arms patting themselves on the back. Atherton does some amazingly stupid things.
