Last week, my friend (and community activist) in the Bay area, Tim Lohrentz wrote on Facebook, "The apartment complex I was going to move in to told me that I can't due to my electric car -- they don't want a cord dangling out my window and 30 feet to where the car would be parked. So I am looking again."
The town that this occurred in was Petaluma. Lohrentz wrote,"It's a great town. Petaluma is a Maya-Miwok name that means "bounty of the earth pouring out'."
One friend appropriately inquired, "[I]sn't that some sort of housing discrimination? anti-eco-carism or something? you are out there in California where all new environmental law starts"sounds like the beginning of a case to me"?"
Lohrentz responded, "Technically I could have the car there, they just wouldn't let me ever plug it in. I think the marketing/image approach has more potential than the discrimination approach. LOL"
Most comments have been as follows:
"Hope you find a place soon that will let you plug in!"
I ask readers-- ARE THERE ANY OTHER READERS WHO HAVE HAD SIMILAR PROBLEMS?
