Level 1 EV Battery ChargingEdit

Dr. Frank supports Level 1 charging as the predominant EV battery charging infrastructure that we should build. "While not a market maker for the new charging infrastructure industry, using Level 1 is the fastest, most convenient, most economical and benign way to grow the PHEV and BEV market!" [3] [4] [5] [6]
