A couple responses:
First, charging locations are always welcome. Hopefully, our chrging
comittee will follow this up. As we get businesses to provide public-
access charging stations, we intend that they be listed on our site.
Included there should be links to the providers' web sites. We have
to get a few to see how this works out. It's too bad that someone who
was there looking at them didn't plug something in to see if they are
currently live. However, that isn't too critical, since we'll need
owner's permission to do anything about it anyway.
As for charging at pay-for parking, that would be up to each parking
provider. As far as I know, a few outlets are available at Smart Park
lots in Portland that do provide charging while parked. We should
follow this up and get specific addresses on our list.
Same for overnight use. Have to ask each location separately.
Second, as for updates to our meeting location, I think you mean the
charging stations at 1st and Salmon. They should be updated to
specify a selection of 240VAC on a NEMA 14-50 or 120VAC on a standard
AC outlet. Maps for the charging locations would be good for all,
too. Maybe this will get on the list of our volunteer webmaster.
Related to that, I think the station at the Hillsdale Library is and
AVCON only. No standard conductive 120 or 240VAC outlets. I'm sure
there's some members that can verify this. It would be nice if it
were updated on our list.
As things move forward with our charging comittee, these will be

1) I was telling some Pub buddies about OEVA and Plug-In America a
couple weeks ago, and a Construction Contractor friend checked out a
memory he had of seeing a bunch of outdoor power outlets on poles
atthe former _Monkey Wards_ -
since then he drove in there to look and reports seeing about 10
double plugs (on light poles I think) in the parking area. He lifteD
the cover of one and said it was all dusty & buggy from lack of use -
but looked OK.
Does someone want to check these out, and chat with the building
Manager at Montgomery Park about adding their location to EV Charging
listings? (Could bring them and NW businesses some extra BIZ during

2) Also - that major charging location list also asks for occaisional
reviews, and details on types of equipment that I can't answer. In
specific, I don't think I saw a recent update for the OEVA meeting
location at the World Trade Center.
Can someone add current information, with a map & photo Links?
Have a great day. Art in the Pearl awaits. I love September.
