Central Florida - "off grid" but available 120v outlets

Fri Feb 03, 2012 5:47 pm

At the risk of being called a "power poacher", I thought it would be helpful to make a list of available "off grid" (as in, not on chargepoint or similiar site) but available 120v outlets in the area. I'm making this specific to Central Florida, so if you would like to do this for another area please make a new thread.

To make this easier for others to use I'll ask that you put the complete address, or better yet, add a link from google maps. Then a simple instructions on where the outlet would be found. It would also be helpful if you knew if there were any explicit authorization made by certain individual (i.e. owner of site).

I'll start off...

There are available 120v outlets at my work garage. The garage can be located on google maps: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=28 ... 5&t=m&z=16

There are at least 4 outlets per floor, and about 6 floors. I know the security gaurds very well, and they don't have a problem with people "plugging in". That may change in the future, but for now, have at it.

Does anyone know of any available 120v outlets on Walt Disney World?

To be honest, I have never used a charging station off of charge point. Most of my charges are done at home. I don't have to charge at work, but I do b/c I can. But I have noticed that there are plenty of places to plug into that are not on charge point.

How far away is work from your home? Are you able to have a charging dock installed at your home?

Have you checked out Plugshare?

There are quite a few people in the Orlando area who are sharing a J1772 or a 120 outlet. You should encourage everyone to just add their charging station there, as I have.

Ahem, There are no 110V outlets in Florida, or anywhere in the US, and haven't been for the better part of a century.

The correct specification is 120v.

I'm trying my best to get work to put in a charging station or at the very least a 120v outlet. I'm at the Southpark Center complex off of John Young Parkway.

Anyone know if there are outlets to plugin at around Millenia Mall?
