Everyone has a parking space but no easy way to get power to it for recharging. Some electric power companies are helping out in small ways, but we need to do more.

It would provide good info for someone like Quinn and perhaps keep those units rented a bit more- a benefit for the owner. Anyone who has information could contribute.

I looked at a place and asked if I could pay to have an outlet installed by a licensed electrician, and either have the outlet tied to my meter or pay a flat rate every month.  For the last year my current apartment management allowed the latter and it worked great.  She said she'd have to ask her management (American Property Management) and they said no, no explanation given.  This is disappointing, and kind of surprising that they would not work with me at all because this issue is not going to go away.  It seems American Properties is the largest apartment manager in the Portland area.

But I still need a place to live so I want to be civil about it.  If Walmart has EV charging stations it seems odd that one can't get just any kind of plug at the place they live, even if it's 120V.  It's near Powell and 28th, EV 4 Oregon and Hopworks both have J1772 charging stations within walking distance, but I don't know how everyone will like me parking there several times a week.  Perhaps there's someone in the neighborhood that would be willing to strike a deal with me to make a little extra money, just for letting me charge there.  Any other ideas and suggestions are greatly encouraged.

I think I may still have forward and reverse crossed, but that is a small matter easily fixed.  There are still many items to be done before the project is complete, but at this point I can actually drive it.  I think it is time to take it down off the jack stands.
