I also think that the model will change. You Walgreens and CVS will come to replace your BP and Mobile stations.

I was looking at the Blink map for the Arizona Inn in Tucson, which has 8 chargers. Right now 6 of them are in use, on a Tuesday night in the middle of summer. Is there a Tesla club meeting? That's pretty amazing, but then it's the only hotel in Tucson with chargers so far.

Hey, all you Arizona solar owners/leasers, please write the AZ Corporation Commission to express your displeasure at the changes to net metering here. While they are grandfathering current owners for 20 years as a way to keep us quiet, I think we should all speak up for the future of rooftop solar in our state, as we are the best spot in the country for rooftop.

Fortunately, conservatives are split on the issue, with Barry Goldwater, Jr. leading the charge for rooftop solar, so I think there's a pretty good chance APS will lose, but it's not worth the risk. Every call/letter counts!

+1 jspearman! Well said.

I just got the letter from APS and had the same thought. APS just wants to shut us up. We really have to advocate for solar and keep net metering!

Arizona really needs to be progressive with solar, especially with so much sunshine, not the opposite.

What BS. APS is making up stories so everyone can feel sorry for the "problem" that they want to make more money.

Might have to push up my plans for my off grid system to "stick" it to them. Because you know, they are going to save so much money not having to maintain the grid to my house. :roll:

I have not been here for a while, was there ever a Phx metro Leaf gathering ? Friday I pick up the Leaf with the new battery pack and I will finally be able to drive the car far distances again (120 miles instead of 80)...
Even tho we know what causes the degradation to the battery pack, there is still no way for me to correct the problem 100% ..I may be able to cool the garage down slightly once I get my solar panels up, but other then that I see no correction to the degradation problem ...
I just look forward to another battery replacement in 2 years and then buying another leaf if the same battery replacement program is in place ..

There hasn't really been any gatherings in Phoenix.

how long did it take for them to replace the battery from when you bought it in to file a claim?

Going to a D'backs game just got sweeter when you're driving an EV. We had free parking and charging courtesy of Blink. There are three charging stations on Jackson just across from the 4th St. entrance to the ballpark.
Had six Nissan LEAFs in five years. Hope to get another.
