This is great info ... turns out that Chicago downtown has two active charging stations already (who knew!) so I added a few suggestions in the suburbs as well as our commuter rail stations (Metra) with larger lots. There was also one in Madison, WI where we travel sometimes --- unfortunately it's 121 miles away so a bit out of range. I still think for me at least we would charge it overnight at home but having the flexibility to extend the range a bit with a quick charge would be great. I read a story about a Tesla driver who managed to go from CA to OR and mapped out RV parks along the way who had hookups for power so it's not so far fetched that you could plot out a trip using these until more charging stations become available.garygid wrote:I pulled up the charger-site map at "TheEvProject.com" and added a dozen or more suggested sites along and around the I-5 freeway through Orange County, CA.
I tried for intersections of 2 (or more) freeways, with exit-access to the site in all directions, and first-available charging locations after longer "isolated" stretches of road.
But, it is easy, and a bit "fun", so I encourage you to try it in your area. Often, locals will know a good spot that is either vacant or has suitable parking already in place. Existing access to nearby electricity is good too!

Will the Leaf show both networks, and "other" e-fuel networks, ... because they are all being implemented to tie together in one real-time database?
If so, what are the "tie together" standards?
I added a couple too. Rather selfishly, I added one at the OCTA (Orange County Transit Authority, for those not familiar) offices in Garden Grove, just down the street from my house, and one at LAX, just up the street from my office.garygid wrote:I pulled up the charger-site map at "TheEvProject.com" and added a dozen or more suggested sites along and around the I-5 freeway through Orange County, CA.
