Part of the reason for that photo was to prove that we do get Sun once in a while - even in December. :P

ps : But for the cloud I'd be working on my backyard right now ... instead of starting this thread !!

In the central Puget Sound area, ECOtality expects to install 900 residential charging stations and 1,000 commercial stations, 150 of which will be on publicly-owned land, company officials say.

Another 45 fast chargers, which can charge a battery in about half an hour, rather than overnight, will also be allocated to the area.


This is how EV friendly Bellevue is :oops:

"We don't want to be a barrier to the market moving in this direction," said Sheida Sahandy, the city's chief environmental policy advisor.

A 2009 state law requires cities such as Bellevue -- ones that border regional freeways and meet a population threshold -- to amend development regulations by July 1 to encourage the transition to electric vehicle use.
Wow ! :D

So ... the choice is a] California sunshine; b] lowest carbon footprint (almost no A/C use, no lawn watering :lol: ) ... move to Seattle ... hmmm ...

If one looks at the charging sites listed, many are either private or in pay parking lots.

The placement of Level 3 chargers at sufficient well-chosen, properly-spaced, easily-accessable points along I-5 (and other transportation corridors) will be hugely significant.

With a L3 charger every 50 miles on flat land, and 25 or so in hills and mountains ... what a day that will be.

Level 2 chargers do not really help all that much unless you happen to be spending significant time parked there. If we had plug-in L2 EVSEs, just 240v sockets would be sufficient ... but, I suppose they want to be able to charge for the e-fuel.

An L2 charger can fuel only one (or a small few) cars a day. An L3 charger may cost 5 or 10 times as much initially, but it could fuel 20 or 30 cars a day. I suspect, for a real e-fueling business, only the Level 3 Quick-fueling will make sense (with a few 120v, L1, and L2 connections for non-L3 vehicles.

It will be interesting to see how the different factions compete for our e-fuel business. Will there be different "brands" of e-fuel, black e-fuel, green e-fuel, red ... ? Already there are different "brands" of e-stations.
