In my area (Seattle), there are a lot more Chargepoint stations (8) than EV Project stations (1). I'd like to sign up for a Chargepoint card, but not if it's going to get me kicked out of the EV Project.
The Nissan LEAF SL-e models include a Zigbee transceiver and the Blink includes a Zigbee transceiver... When I spoke with the EV Project representative when the first Nissan LEAF was delivered here in Oregon I was told this is how they are collecting charging data for the research project.garygid wrote:The Blink EVSE does not download (get) any data from the car.
It does not even know what the LEAF's SOC is when charging "stops".
The LEAF can send data to CARWINGS, but it has no other data connection (other than the short-range bluetooth signal) that I know of.
Perhaps the EVProject has access to the CARWINGS database?
I think for a lot of us, they did not let us order until we were "approved" for the EV Project, probably for not wanting to have us order the QC option and have it in the price, then have to re-do the order to Etec later. Hence, Sept. order month for me but not allowed to order until Oct. 1.garygid wrote:Thanks for that SL-e communication info.
I guess folks that ordered SL+QC (and later were approved for the EVProject) got $700 back for their QC option, AND Zigbee installed in the LEAF (just to "talk" to the Blink EVSE)?
