Irate family called police on Jennifer Granholm’s team for blocking charging station spot for her electric car

Biden Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm had a rocky electric vehicle tour that included a confrontation with a family who called the police on her staff over a charging station standoff.

Granholm’s staff got into a tiff with an unhappy family earlier this summer after her team tried to hold an electric vehicle charging spot by parking a gas car there, according to an NPR story from Sunday headlined, “Electric cars have a road trip problem, even for the secretary of energy.”

The four-day trip from North Carolina to Tennessee was “intended to draw attention to the billions of dollars the White House is pouring into green energy and clean cars.” 

Granholm’s ambitious southern trip that was “painstakingly mapped out ahead of time to allow for charging,” however, drew the ire of one family in particular, due to a familiar problem for electric car vehicle drivers.
