The Smart park at First and Jefferson in downtown has the same style
charging station as the 121 sw salmon site.  It is located on the first
ramp to the right near the motorcycle parking.  
 
It usually is blocked by a gas car 
(A monthly parker parks there..&%%%^%%%&^%#*(*&%^).
 I think that everytime anyone is downtown with their ev they should
pull in, get a parking slip, find out that it is blocked and then
complain...
I heard there is one in the old town/china town area in another smart
park, but have never seen it.
 
A VP at Costco said he would be willing to work with users in the area
and put in charging stations in all the COSTCO, but it would take
customers asking about it.  They have them up in the  Seattle area.
 
I heard PSU was going to put one in, but not sure if it happened.
 
I understand that the current charging stations could not be installed
now, because the Electrical Code requires the charger device to
"communicate" to the car to verify that it is connected and not just be
a dumb recepticle.  To do it, would require a waiver from the electrical
inspector.  Might want to check that out.

The OEVA resources page mentions the charging station(s) at 121 SW
Salmon include a 240v 14-50r receptacle. By the way, isn't there just
one station there?

http://www.oeva.org/resources/

This page gives a pictorial of what the14-50r (and others) look like:

http://www.evchargernews.com/nemaconfig.htm

Reason I ask is that my charger has a 10-50p plug (also pictured at
above link) and so I'd like to wire up an adapter and wanted to confirm
that the charging station receptacle is actually a 14-50r. If someone
already has an adapter they'd like to sell, let me know.

2. Regarding the receptacles under the WTC pavilion brick deck where we
park and charge during our Thursday evening monthly meetings, are any of
those 220-240v? If so, what type are they?

3. At times other then our monthly meetings, if a driver ever needs to
charge and the curbside charging station or the parking spots next to it
are taken, can the EVer charge on the pavilion area?

4. At our previous monthly meetings, mention has been made of another
downtown charging station possibly located in a parking garage structure
in the vicinity of Portland State University. What is the address of
that facility and where is the charging station located within it?

Mark,
There are two parking spaces at 1st and Salmon, with a single pole on
the curb between them.  On the pole is a two-sided box with separate
circuits for each parking space.  GFI-protected 240V and 120V outlets,
powered eeparately under control of a 120V-OFF-240V selector switch. 
Each side has its own breakers, too.

The 240V outlets are indeed 14-50's.  I bought standard 14-50s at A-Boy
for my cord.  Nothing special or unusual that I know of about any of
it.

And, the parking and electricity is free while charging.

One pole with two pairs of outlets, one pair for each parking spot. 
The
outlets are a 14-50 and a standard 120v.  The power switch for each
pair
allows you to choose which outlet you want powered.

The underground outlets are 120v only.
