416Re: seeking: where to install Santa Rosa public EV chargers
- Feb 4, 2002The EV charging site I built is
On the second page of my site http://geocities.com/brucedp
I have links to EV charging maps and more.
Some EV drivers are interested in speed, distance, or other
activities. My main focus is charging.
I spear headed EV charging installations at Hewlett-Packard,
and have done presentations on how to install EV charging
at company sites.
I have six chargers in my Blazer EV allowing me to charge as
fast as you have outlets (I have gotten a 50 mile recharge
down to 1.5 hours using my 100 amp charging current ability).
Using this ability allowed me to stair step charge my way to
Sacramento using public charging. This also allows me to state
what works and what does not.
CARB has set the standard to Conductive AVCON EV charging. While
GM is still grumbling about this, inductive users have moved
forward to embrace conductive as it would cost much less to
put in and more public charging sites would be installed.
EV charging is best when installed every 40 miles, with an AVCON
powerpak and a 5-20 20amp duplex gfi outlet with tymac weather
tight enclosures. This allows Production EVs, conversion EVs,
neighborhood EVs, and Ebikes to use the spots. This truely is
the EVI envisioned Level 1 and Level 2 charging.
The location of these spots should be not in front, but located
where gas car are less likely to park, and near power panels.
Locating these spots in the rear, or along the back/side where
gas car do not go, with 24 hour access, will keep the gas cars
out of the EV spots (unlike at Costco's).
EV charging locations should be at a host that has something for
the EV driver to do and spend their money while they charge.
Some local EAA http://eaaev.org chapters offer a free EAA EV
parking sign for each new EV charging spot. As EVents Officer of
the San Jose EAA Chapter, we seek out hosts and offer most of
the installation equipment cost covered by our treasury funds.
We feel this serves the EAA purpose of promoting public EV use.
