Same goes for gas stations, no power no gas.

I have a TESLA and love it- you can log in and request they add one- closest supercharger is OCALA 30 +/- miles away.

TV should keep up with times and start adding chargers - like it or hate it EV is here!

Dreaming about TV without smelling gas golf carts... pure, clean, quiet! Save the planet.

And yes, I am concerned that my 300 to 400 mile range may not be enough to get out of the way of a hurricane that is roaring down on me at 12 MPH - oh wait, we have TWO interstate hiways (I75 and Florida Turnpike) to get out of the state fast.

(BTW, with a Tesla you can top off you charge every night at home so it is always ready to go the full range, can you top off your gas tank every night at home?)

(Says the native Floridian that has lived here through quite a few hurricanes.)
Were you here for the last hurricane? 75, 95, turnpike were parking lots of people trying to get out of harms way.

What model do you have? I think they are great cars. We ended up with a Lexus hybrid, nice but no Tesla.

Just out of curiosity, who would you expect to pay for installing these chargers?

Did many people leave during Hurricane Irma? Nobody on our block did. I could see I-75 as being crowded with people leaving Naples, Sarasota, Tampa/St. Pete, but in TV everyone should of stayed put and that would of placed less cars on the interstate.
