Pleasant Hill Upgrade Update 2

leave a comment »

The four level 2 chargers are fully functional!

Data: I am fully functional

As you can see, the new updated pedestal features an LED screen, albeit a bad picture.

Although the three new stalls do not have signage nor do they have painted stalls indicating EV only parking, and of course all three were ICEd.

The city hall charger is also up and running, unfortunately without the same obvious EV only notifications.

It’s official, the fourth Tesla car and the third high volume mass production car is the Model III or Model 3.

The Model 3 joins the Model S and X, proving S.3.X. sells.

It looks like the Martinez Veterans Affairs is switching from the Schneider Electric to the new Charge Point pedestal. Hope they will be public.

PG&E rate / schedule change a bust, for now.

leave a comment »

PG&E asked the CPUC, California Public Utilities Commission, for a rate structure change that would have positives and negatives for the EV customer. Apparently the rate and schedule change didn’t go through on November 1st, as PG&E asked. Although that may always change in the future, it’s a signal for those who are interested in a separate meter to charge their EV to go forward, as I am still going to do.

Better news is that summer and winter off-peak tier 1 pricing went down $0.01729/kWh. This means my operating cost for my EV would be $15 in the summer and $18 in the winter, per month.

Last Fill Up

leave a comment »

I got my last fill up Friday night. I’ve never complained about gassing up before. But standing there in the cold, with the smell of gasoline in the air, I’m not going to miss it.
