Apartment complexes can be addressed perhaps by grants programs. It is a real problem and affects a disproportionate number of lower income families. Right now if you rent and approach the owner/management about installing chargers or even plugs, they are likely to want to stick you with the entire bill. Long-term these owners will need to have charging available or people will not want to rent there, so it will enhance the value of the property. Bridging that is what this program needs to do.

Agree on this. The author is wrong, there are lots of L3 stations being build, and this seems to me pretty scalable. These L3 stations are not equivalent to gas stations for day to day driving, A much bigger problem is day to day charging for people who live in apartments or otherwise lack a place to install a charger and charge their cars. Some of these people park on the street, in apartment complex parking lots and in public or private parking garages. If someone doesn’t have a place to charge every night, they are a lot less likely to buy an EV.
