Re: LET'S BUILD THE CALIFORNIA WEST COAST ELECTRIC HIGHWAY

This is a common complaint: "I live near XYZ and ABC, yet there's no DC a charger there. Why wouldn't you do that first?" The various tourist spots are just that, and the WCEH is first and foremost an interstate transportation EV recharging program. I personally can't drive to the eastern part of Sa...

Re: Tesla CHAdeMO/CCS Network

Apple pushed the mobile phone industry; not by copying or building Motorola or Palm devices, but building their own.

Re: LET'S BUILD THE CALIFORNIA WEST COAST ELECTRIC HIGHWAY

Tony, your EV cohorts and you set reasonable goals for usable DC-FC infrastructure. I like the idea of building the network like an interstate highway with uniformity and regulated standards. Have you considered starting an NGO designed to make charging more democratic? We are indeed working on the...

Re: DC fast charging: J1772 CCS vs CHAdeMO vs Supercharger,

CHAdeMO : 5467 charge points to >230,000 vehicles — 1:>42 (1 charge point for every >42 vehicles) CCS : 50(?) charge points to 4001(?) — >1:80 (>1 charge point for every 80 vehicles—assuming more CCS charge points have been installed in the past 3 months, the ratio will be closer to the CHAdeMO's.)...

Re: Tesla CHAdeMO/CCS Network

Not even a remote possibility. They will build their far superior Tesla Supercharger network (with destinations, like hotels, equipped with HPC). Then, they will offer the following adaptors: 1) J1772 - $95 2) CHAdeMO - $450 3) SAE-CCS-Combo1 - if the standard gains traction, it will get an adaptor ...

Re: Can I use the Tesla chargers?

All our manufacturing is done in Kennewick, WA, USA.

The Tesla adaptor is a lot easier to build than our CHAdeMO modification (JdeMO) !

Permission to use/adapt this?
