We attended an evening work event at Sea World over the weekend - when we pulled in the kid manning the parking booth recognized the Leaf and went out of his way to give us turn by turn directions to the cluster of Chargepoint stations in the middle of the sea of parking, and emphasize that charging was free. We were not in desperate need of juice but 3 of the four spaces were vacant (one ICEd by a Corolla) and it was near the end of the regular hours day, so I figured we'd go ahead and take them up on it to show support for the concept. We have a Chargepoint card (not currently linked to a credit card) which activated the unit, though I reckon we could have called someone to activate if we didn't have the card. It fired up right away, unlocked the plug and we were in business. Got topped up while we were at the event. I didn't know I was supposed to end the charge by waving the card again, I just unplugged.

Overall a very pleasant experience, diminished only by seeing a humungous ICE SUV wedging its way into one of the other spaces as we walked away. That really ate away at me until my attention was refocused by the violent motion of the Manta roller coaster a while later.

Someone please put it on Plugshare. I already sent them an email saying that they need to add a CCS option on the "Settings" menu, although based on my past experience of them completely ignoring any attempt to contact a real person there to correct errors I don't expect any action. Maybe somebody knows the secret handshake or at least a more direct way to contact them.

In any case, someone more familiar with the charger location and exactly how to get there should add the site to Plugshare and Recargo (if the latter's still possible; they've had a message up claiming that the "Filter" option would be available by the end of May, and here it is almost October).

There are now 2 "Parkmobile" EVSE's at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. I was there this afternoon and found a black Leaf charging there. No info on the sign or on Parkmobile's website regarding pricing, etc. Anyone know anything about these?

There's a brand new EVGo Chademo/L2 station at Las Americas Premium Outlets, a few yards north of the Mexican border, near the intersection of Camino de La Plaza and Willow Rd. Utility meter is set and energized, but EVSE not yet ready for use. This one has to qualify for public EVSE closest to an international border!

Ah yes...eVgo's latest Freedom Station location in San Diego down at the Las Americas outlet center. Good catch! Testing will be in a few days, and then it will be available for public use...

Don't forget eVgo's special pricing for California drivers...
