“Street Charging for an Electric Vehicle?”

from Columbia Heights

“Dear Popville,

Any advice for how to charge an electric vehicle from a townhome in DC that does not have a garage or backyard access? I imagine we can’t be the only ones with a home built before cars, who would like to go electric.

There are very few public charging stations in the District, and it would be great to run something from the front of our house so we can charge it ourselves whenever we want (rather than having to drive to Whole Foods and sit for a few hours). Have others installed chargers near the sidewalk, or simply run out the charging cable direct from their house whenever they need to juice up? DCRA or other issues?”
