How many of us are there?
I know there is one other 2011 Glacier Pearl Leaf in my town (besides mine)- I've seen it twice, most recently at the movie theater parking lot on Friday night.
I think there are only 2 Leafs in my town...according to the Nissan place here.
Any other Leafers in West Texas?
We have unique issues out here compared to Leafers in big cities. We have no QCs, only 1 Level 2 charge station in town (at THE Nissan place- yes, there is only one), and our Walgreens, HEBs, and Starbucks do not have even Level 2 charging available.
I actually live in a rural area and commute into town 13 miles one way. I cannot make it to the nearest similarly-sized city (as mine) with another Level 2 charging station available, so my Leaf is stranded here; I must use my back-up ICE to make it to the next city.
We have no subsidized EVSE programs here; I'm currently charging at Level 1 with plans to run a 240V outlet to the garage and convert to the modified Level 2 EVSE from Ingineer.
My employer has no intention of adding charge capability, even though they are a healthcare business and their clients could benefit from having access to charging at some point in the future. (Imagine having to stay in the hospital for days without being able to plug your car in...)
We are in an area with strong oil and gas roots- economy-wise and culture-wise, though we are developing wind farms all over the place. The whole idea of 100% electric cars is alien out here. I'm the wacky "green treehugger" at my place of employment. But someone has to start this transition!
At any rate, I thought it would be nice to connect with like-minded souls out here in West TX, especially since we may never pass one another on the road as we are currently limited in our range.
