This is big.

Employers, for years have been encouraged to promote car pooling for ther commuting employees. The IRS even allows a tax credit of over $250 pet employee once implemented.
LEED Certification also comes into play as well as other IRS allowed fringe benefits and perks.

The DoE’s Work Place Charging is designed to bring these smog and reduced fossil fuels scheme into the present.

Best angle here is that with most employees on site for 8 hours or more, 110V AC will work just fine for the average 34 mile commute!
