Default 350 KW supercharger

I was reading about Tesla and Porsche coming out with 350 KW battery supercharging stations. If my math is right, a large house has 240 V at 200 amps coming in from the street. That's 48,000 watts or 48 KW. So to charge only one car at a time the station would consume as much electricity as 7 homes! Seems like a lot. Am I missing something?

There's over 36 Kw in a gal. of gasoline so charging @10 gal per hour seems reasonable.

They have to promote more and faster charging stations especially in the winter. my friends Tesla wastes so much power heating the batteries, if the car says range 170 miles, he's lucky to get half that
