There's just no pleasing anyone with these electric cars...

 
Leaving your electric car charging overnight to have it ready in the morning seems like a good idea in theory. But in reality, research suggests doing so does more harm in the long run. Stanford scientists say that it’s more costly to charge your electric car at night and it could stress out your local electric grid.
Instead, researchers suggest drivers should switch to charging their vehicle at work - which I'm sure your 'green-deal' boss will be more than happy to let you if they can deduct the electric bill from your salary - or in public charging stations, where you'll leave your vehicle unattended and it most definitely will probably be stolen or broken in to.
 

 Another added benefit to charging in the daytime at a public station is that it reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Of course, that theory works great if you have a charging station right next door to your place of business, if not, somebody'll have to give you a ride to the office, increasing greenhouse gas emissions. Juss' sayin'...
