With JESLA, you can use the NEMA 10-30 plug, and buy a TT-30 plug to NEMA 10-30 inlet adaptor (that we sell) and charge at 24 amps at 120 volts.
Thanks Tony. I was wondering about that TT-30 with the Jesla. I'd used the EVSE Upgrade and only got 12 amps. So I'll need the 10-30 adapter. I didn't order that one. I have a TT-30 plug from John Rowell in Exeter.

The Jesla's on the truck for delivery here today. Thanks for the exceptionally prompt service.

I've thought about that Bakersfield to Ridgecrest via Tehachapi and also don't believe I can make it to Tehachapi without a 45 minute stop at Mojave CHP.

Paul, There is another 2015 LEAF in the Ridgecrest area, over at Trona, so a trip to Ridgecrest could have a big crowd !

Also, would there be any "market" in Kernville for a DCQC station? I've looked at the EV Werks units and they cost around $3K. It would get a little business as that is the shortest distance from this side of the valley to your side.

Alan,

Just getting an L2 in the Kernville-Isabella area would be an accomplishment. As noted here most people I talked to said, "An electric what?"

I'll give Reed Tollefson a call next week and ask him about that TT-30. Maybe we could talk Audubon into installing a NEMA 14-50.

There's an RV park at Mountain Mesa that says it has 50-amp service. Someone could call them too.

What do you know about the fellow in Trona? You know EVs are coming if there's one in Trona. ;)

Just noted on Plugshare.com that someone else has just spent the night and charged at Whispering Pines. They didn't say what kind of car they were driving. "Bay Area EV Consultant". Does anyone know who that is?
