That's great that we're getting more of those. They're advertiser-backed charging. I went on Volta's website, and so far their charging map still only shows Hawaii locations, so I don't know how we'll find out about where the (dozen or so) new ones are going in.

Very cool! I shop at the center almost every weekend - Petsmart and Bed Bath and Beyond are there...and a ZTejas!

Looks like they aren't even finished installing them. One was lit up, one wasn't. Oddly enough the one that was lit up didn't work, and the one that wasn't, did.

I added it to plugshare.

Glad we're finally getting some choice in charging, especially with the sad state of Ecotality. I'll take our RAV there this weekend and see what charging temps look like. Any idea what the max charging speed is in these units?

Sign up for Nation Plug In Day at the Pavilions.

Gotta love they plan to have a plug in day at a location that you can't actually plug in. :roll:

True enough...however, there will be lots of car people there...and not just people who are already sold on driving electric.

Isn't the Pavillions where there is a McDonald's which hosts a car show on Saturday nights? Is that where they are going to be? I think it would be pretty cool if it was.
Had six Nissan LEAFs in five years. Hope to get another.

All the more reason to have it someplace that shows off the charging infrastructure.

Yes, that's the place.

Looks like Ecotality days are numbered... Everything goes up for auction next month .. I wonder if the DOE will shut down the chargers until they find another company to manage them ..

I'm curious what it takes to keep them live, and I'm wondering if that equipment is hosted here in Phoenix. I could bid on the stuff and put it in my casita:)

Not sure if I put it into my calendar wrong or they changed the time, but the event today at the pavilions is at 3pm. I plan to be there, though I'll probably have to find a charger to get back home.
