"Coulomb Technologies said on Friday that Wooden Cross Lutheran will be the first church in the country to get a charging station. Coulomb, a Silicon Valley startup, is running a $37 million program (with $15 million from the federal government) to install 4,600 public and home charging stations in nine regions of the country, including New York, Washington, D.C., Orlando (Fla.), Austin, Detroit, and the San Francisco Bay Area."
Wooden Cross Lutheran Church may be the first in the country to receive an electric charging station for vehicles; however, if this trend continues they surly will not be the last. This situation will bring forth a new front in the security industry. How do be prevent unauthorized user from stealing electricity? How do we regulate who will use these charging stations? This is something that I have not even begun to think about; however, this may be something that we all will need to consider in the next decade.
