How pathetic is it that the bay area which has had a huge EV population for years has not EVSE program like the other regions. Good thing Gavin is on his way out, those few pathetic 120 stations at city hall for the plug in Prius fleet are a poor excuse for taking credit to make SF the EV capital.
My feelings exactly!! They moved their headquarters to San Francisco "to be in the middle of the action"...I guess the joke is on us.
I think it is a shell office because SF would not work with AZ companies on the immigration law. Who knows but it regardless the mayor is really bad at negotiating anything green for the city but he acts like he has done it all for SF.
It's unfortunate that politics take a front seat in just about everything.

SB1070 forced the "shell office" move to a kinder and gentler EV environment, San Francisco. Their are still two offices for ECOtality and ETEC here in Scottsdale and Phoenix.
I work down the street from the Scottsdale ECOtality office and have never seen a car in the lot or anyone at the office. I think it's just a shell of a building holding up the ECOtality sign. I called the Scottsdale office once and was automatically forwarded to a field service tech's cell phone who said I should call the CEO if I have any questions. Google maps street view is the best EV Covert Ops tool these days.
I guess 99.8 Million doesn't buy much of an office building or phone system.
