Thanks for sharing - that's great news! This could be helpful for those desiring to attend some of the excellent, public lectures at Mudd.tbleakne wrote:The Chargepoint dual J1772 station at Harvey Mudd College went live this week. I posted details on Plugshare.
I'm not surprised. Using the LEAF within its single charge range is super convenient and enjoyable; this is the "low hanging fruit" of EV driving, most notably for those who lack the early adopter or enthusiast mindset. I've also met other LEAF owners who stay close to home, including one man whose LEAF never leaves Big Bear Lake. Relying on public charging, one has to deal with ICEing, broken charging stations, sometimes no charging stations available, multiple charging networks (Blink, evGo, ChargePoint, GE, AV, etc.), and prices that are higher than gasoline even before the recent drop in oil prices. Tesla Supercharging is more user friendly, but at a price of course.tbleakne wrote:My impression is that many more of the newer generation of EV owners have very limited expectations for their LEAFs or other vehicle, and many have little or no interest in using public charging to extend their range.

I think that Gary "Just-Drove-The-Prius(TM)" the last several times that he's been down here. Now, there's no excuse to dump-the-pump.JasonA wrote:Gary, why not try a different place and go to the Poway meet on the 7th now that you have all the range in Nicolas?
