I went with the EVSE upgrade and love it! I considered the Watt Station but it was not out when I was looking last summer.

I have been to Park City up Provo Canyon. Going up drained the battery a lot. Coming down I used very little. It was last summer. Not sure I would do it in cold conditions as I didn't have much left.


Do not worry, I am sure we will get together again soon. Have you found any J1772 stations in Park City ?

PlugShare claimed there was one in Park City months ago but I never used it. I just checked ago minutes ago and it now appears to be gone.

I have found that there are plenty of 110v plugs at the entrance to the resort at the Canyons. As long as I leave the keys with the valet, they don't mind me using them.

Any RV parks in the area (maybe with 240v 14-50R sockets)?

If I win the HGTV 2012 Dream Home near Midway,
I will try to add more Solar PV panels (apparently it has 8),
add some charging outlets,
and get permission to run a 2-room B&B for visitors.

I am sure there are RV parks up that direction but who wants to hang out at an RV park in the middle of winter while the car charges?

I definitely should have brought my black one to mix things up a bit. I know there is a silver one in the state as well.

There is an air quality article on www.KSL.com today.

I sent an email to the authors of the article, letting them know we already have a solution for this problem.

KSL wants to interview Leaf owners, so I set up Monday afternoon 1 PM at the EV charge station in Liberty Park.

Darren if you can make it that would be great. I already talked to Michael and Kelly on the phone and they will be there also. I figure the more EV's we can have there the better.

Ah... great! Keep us posted on the outcome! Hope they air something significant. How I envy you Leaf owners along the Wasatch Front. I am pretty isolated down here in St. "Gorgeous." Can't wait to get my Leaf, however, since the driving range and climate around here are both perfect for EVs. :)

Hello to anyone who has wandered into the Utah thread from elsewhere (& made it to page 4!), here's a little pertinent geography/meteorology info: Salt Lake City sits in a big, beautiful bowl 35 x 25 miles or so with big mountains to the west and even bigger ones, with the ski resorts in them, to the east. Several other urban areas to the north & south are more or less similarly situated. During high atmospheric pressure periods, usually in the winter, the air mass over the basin stabilizes into an "inversion" with the cold air on the bottom & the warm air on top w no movement whatsoever, sometimes for weeks! Makes for nice ski days but REALLY BAD AIR in the valley where everybody lives.
It gets so thick that "snow" falls which is basically frozen smog. The media euphemism is "haze" (they still use that one in L.A. too.) point is, it's mostly the result of personal transportation. So we bought a LEAF. I am not anybody's idea of an early adopter, but now I feel like a pioneer. Regarding the photo a few posts back, I wanted to have a 'before' picture, the 'after', I figure, will need to be taken from a high vantage point, showing hundreds of vehicles stretching into the distance at the EV rendezvous we'll have there. It's a big park. You're all invited. ML & KJWL
