  8. Public charging stations!

    Totally Off-Topic
    Has anyone seen any public charging stations at any mall parking lot in the Northeast? I would gladly take my holiday shopping to the mall that supports EV and EREV charging. I think we need a Public Charging Forum created to discuss charging infrastructure related questions.
