    I don't think I've ever lived anywhere that the electricity was included in the condo fees... aside from maybe a basement suite

    Maybe I am wrong, but 1$ a day to charge your car seems pretty reasonable to me, I don't know why they are crying about it. It actually seems like the Condo board made an effort to meet them in the middle. If the condo board decided to charge them 150$ a month, then maybe they might have something to complain about.

    I hope my condo charges people more than 33$ for plugging in their car at our condo

    How do Tesla’s generate cabin heat for the winter? It must be electric, but that would use a lot of juice would it not?

    ya, thinking about it I don't think I've ever had electricity included in condo fees. These people should get over it.

    Usually with powered stalls in condos, the power is provided by the condo and not the owner, because that would be a cluster fuck to wire into the building of the condo.

    I don't get it though, charging an electric car is the same as plugging in your cars block heater in the winter. A typical block heater uses anywhere from 900W to 1200W, basically very similar power usage to what electric cars charge at on 120Vac.

    So I can see why they are irritated, they are getting charged for something that everyone else gets for free.

    Now the argument could be made that most people don't plug in their block heater every night 365 days a year, but there is nothing stopping them from doing so.

    Edit-
    As for Phreak, as I've pointed out again and again, you assholes on Beyond will spend DAYS trying to figure out how to save $150/year on insurance and bitch about it here on Beyond

    This is the same as someone running an extension cord from the block heater outlets, to power something in their condo. "Free" electricity right? What a couple of idiots.

    I don't know it doesn't seem like the couple are mad. Just mad the power got turned off.. Didn't say they had any issue paying the $33.

    Not really enough information to judge IMO.

    Yes, it moderates the cabin temperature when you're not there. My car has been sitting in my parking garage for 2 weeks and it hasn't used any power. I have it plugged in, but I would be notified if it started charging and when it stopped.

    Good point. I'm going to argue that next, if electricity is included in the condo fee for in the unit, but not the garage, I'll load that bitch to the ceiling and move my stuff out.
