Letter to the Pontiac Chambers of Commerce:
Electric vehicles are more and more in use. There is one easy cheap ways to get the attention of electric car users and potentially draw them in the Pontiac.
Document all your regular outdoor 120 V power plugs on http://www.plugshare.com/ . Electric cars have adapters to plug into a regular power sockets. Some cars also have adapters for 240 V plugs.
If your members want to email me (email@example.com) their address and the location of their 120 V or 240 V outdoor plug, maybe a picture of the plug location, I’ll happily add it for them. I’ve added a listing for the plugs at Mill Dam Park. I heard there were some 240 V plugs in the RV park in Quyon but I have not confirmed that.
I estimate charging a car is 15-25 cents per hour on 120 V. I could add in the description of the plug if a buisiness is expecting compensation for that. I would assume a vehicle electric owner wouldn’t stick arround longer than the time to have a meal or do some shopping, so it wouldn’t end up costing more than 2$.
A gas station or main street buisness might want to look into a type 2 charger (1000$ for one without any payment system).
Happy to answer anyone’s questions on the topic [at firstname.lastname@example.org].
