Okay - supposedly - the driving/riding arrangements for EV recharging will be we have a charger installed at home, and our employer will have one, and we can drive back and forth covering the majority of our driving needs with recharging facilities. But that only works if the employer is willing to have us use "their" electricity to recharge "our" car. I'm curious how everyone is handling recharging issues? Specifically permission for recharging.

Man fired for charging scooter with employer's electricity
You can sort of understand the predicament. Employer provided recharging can be seen as a perk that other employees don't get, and therefore some might want to account for it or something appropriately.
I wrote an article a couple months ago about a similar predicament - Should employers pay for recharging employee-owned electric cars? - A guy in ?Modesto? who had built his own electric car, had been driving it to work, but the employer (prison system) put a stop to that because they didn't have a way to charge him the money to pay for the electricity.
FWIW - my current employer (Yahoo) and previous one (Sun) both had EV charging spots in the parking lot and saw the perk as a way to encourage employees to do the right thing, and also get some green credibility.
