Has anyone heard about any charger plans for federal and state parks?
These are of course managed to accommodate public visits.
I would think it could be an easy sell for parks like Yosemite, that have air quality problems.
I sent the Email below last December, but received no reply. Been meaning to follow up on it.
I am a frequent visitor to Lassen Volcanic National Park. I am also planning to purchase an electric vehicle within the next few months.
I would like to use my EV on future Park visits. But, as you may be aware, the roadside charging infrastructure is currently limited, particularly in the North state.
Does LVNP have any plans to accommodate visitors driving EV's, such as the Nissan LEAF and Ford Focus, and other "plug in vehicles", such as the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius, by providing facilities for drivers to charge their cars, during their visits to the Park? Due to the limited range of most currently available EV's, this will be a crucial question for all drivers along the I-5 corridor, who wish to visit Lassen Park.
In my own case, I live about 50 miles from the park entrance, and am planning to buy a Nissan LEAF this Spring. Just being able to plug into a standard 120 volt outlet for a few hours during my visit, could allow me to leave my "gas guzzler" at home-and make my trips to (and through) the Park, emission-free.
Please feel free to call me at xxxxxxxxxx or reply by email, if you feel I can help provide details of future visitors' needs.
