How easy is it to get a separate time-of-day rate meter in California? I tried to get a separate water meter for my sprinkler system (no sewer charge) and my county quoted a charge of $1,000. This is in GA and I've heard that the charge varies by county.

Can the Tesla or Volt be connected to the charger and configured to only charge during a preset time period?

It's not that easy. The beverage cart is often in the aisle for long periods of time - that prevents someone from putting their legs in the aisle and trying to sleep.

The flight crew will also warn passengers if their legs are too far out.

It's not quite that simple - customers can require the certification. If a customer is sizable enough, the suppliers will have comply to stay in business.

For real world examples, look at the power that the state of Texas has wielded in text book requirements and the state of California with warning labels.
