Around town again...

So the frequent check of the ChargePoint and PlugShare maps show an increasing number of electric vehicle charging stations. I've mentioned on the mynissanleaf forum that as far as I can tell there are three main supporters/implementors of EV charging points. KCPL put in 10 which I understand was assisted in support by federal funds. Walgreens put in around a dozen at various stores around the metro. The Johnson County government has also been adding their support. Even better both the network maps are starting to cross reference each other so both maps are becoming more accurate.

Below are the pictures taken at the Johnson County offices built back in 2006. I also looked inside and was pleased to see the building acquired a LEED Gold standard. It is nice to see tax dollars at work for both business, environmental, and constituent use. The two stations in the complex plus the libraries, DMV (highly appropriate), Health and Human Services, and shared with Olathe bring the county count up to 8.

One note, the 15 minute parking sign is for the space next to mine. It goes 15 minute parking, then EV parking, and then motorcycle parking.

Signing off for today
Try reading a book, it's a novel experience.
