I just spent a day in Old Pasadena. There is an additional EVSE in the One Colorado parking structure on floor B2, east end (AVCON). Look for all my updates for that area on the usual EVSE apps... 8-)

An update (via e-mail) from the "Director of PR & Destination Marketing" for Oldtown Pasadena:
The City of Pasadena has applied for grants to upgrade the chargers in City-owned garages. We know that this application has been made but do not have details about the timing.

Currently none of the garages charge for "charging" and we do not know of the City's future plans to implement fees at this time. The De Lacey garage currently has 3 "legacy" outlets located on ground level adjacent to the handicapped area, and the Schoolhouse garage has (1) outlet on B1 and another (1) on B2.

I hope that this information is helpful. Thank you for your interest in Old Pasadena.

That's only for the units in that condo/apartment complex south of Old Pasadena. :( For multiple hours of L2 charging, I really don't want to pay above about $1 per hour. Otherwise, with only a 3.3kW charger, it starts to be more economical to pay for gasoline for a Prius. I expressed this to the City of Pasadena, and encouraged them to keep their price of charging (if any) reasonable.

In the City garages, there is no charge for the first 90 min., and then you're only paying the regular parking fee after that. I thanked the city for helping to encourage electric vehicle adoption.

The Chargepoint stations at Caltech are now on the Chargpoint map, and they are no longer free. $2/hr, $1 minimum, 4-hour maximum. The location I used is the South parking structure on Wilson Ave., South end, lowest level. PCC at $1.25/hr now looks more like a bargain. I stayed with my car for 32 minutes of charge and was billed $1.05.

$2/hr at 3.8kW is $.53/kWh. The price will be higher if you leave your car connected after your charging is done.

I am told Chargepoint stations cost $6K for the first (networked master) unit, and $5K for a second unit, for a total of $11K plus wiring and installation and a monthly charge. Compare that to a Clipper Creek unit that can charge two vehicles at once, for $2.2K + wiring and installation, with no monthly fee. The Clipper Creek units are simple, but robust, with no facility for charging the customer, so they will always be free.

It seems very unlikely that even a $2/hr fee could ever recover the nearly $9K difference in price between Chargepoint and Clipper Creek. I suggest when we advocate for charging dock installations we point this out.

For anyone using AVCON:

The connector of the Avcon unit in the School House parking lot has been damaged. You need to manually release the shutter in the receiver to connect.
