, Vinton G. Cerf called for more durability from
manufacturers and cited Tesla as an example. I would like to suggest
that Tesla and other makers of electric cars include with every
purchase a garage battery of the same capacity as that in the
automobile. The home battery would have suitable programmable
switching to enable charging at steady sustainable rate, for example,
from renewable resources or overnight, without the wholesale need to
strengthen the domestic power grid. This would allow instant vehicle
recharging when the driver returns home.
