A Leaf At Work!!

This morning, as I pulled into the parking garage at work, I rounded a corner and there was a lovely red Nissan Leaf apparently owned by one of our employees. That is the first time I've seen a Leaf at work. So now there are three EVs at my office, my Volt, my friend and co-worker's new Volt, and now this Leaf.

Charging stations at a nearby company building were to be completed this month so maybe this will open the floodgates. Those stations will be an easy walk or shuttle ride from my building so employees from either building can use them.

A Second Volt At My Office!

A friend in a different department at work has taken the plunge and gotten a Volt! Now there will be two of us there. Our employer is installing Level 2 chargers at one of our office buildings nearby and my friend will be able to take advantage of those when they open for use sometime this month. There is a company-provided shuttle between buildings or, on a nice day, he could easily walk there. His commute is 40 miles one way so charging at work is important to him. He told me that until those chargers are open, he found one in a nearby public parking structure that is $0.25 per half-hour of charging, so he can use that and walk the nine minutes to the office from there. Not bad!
