Too bad about the burial problem. Been there...Sadly, the same here.
In my immediate neighborhood, there are only two EV owners. On the other side of town, there are maybe a dozen more.
Hopefully, that changes in the next 12 months. I can’t use my detached garage, its too expensive to get the circuit underneath my back yard. So my charger will be on the side of the house by the driveway. I’m sure to get a unit that can be remotely disabled when i’m not using it.
But thats my paranoia and not logic speaking. Someone will steal $3 in electricity, so go spend hundreds more on a secure charger.
Lol about stealing electricity. If they're that desperate, I would give it to them.
But where I am it is very unlikely, so that is easy for me to say.
