Personally I'd be happy with 6kW level 2 charging stations all over the place, as long as they didn't charge an arm and a leg.

GRA wrote:BTW, when you say the highest town in Colorado, are you referring to Alma, Winter Park or Leadville? I've driven Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mtn. NP (max. elev. 12,145') a couple of times, I-70 through the tunnel once and also across the divide on the dirt Hagerman Pass Rd. (11,979') that runs between Meredith and Leadville (we were installing a solar lighting system on the 10th Mtn. Division Betty Bear ski hut, and stayed in the Skinner hut).


I meant Leadville.

PS. I grew up in Alma.

No, the J-1772 protocol is designed to prevent that.
