I’m a posting fiend today... must be the countdown to delivery, it's like I’m 10 years old sitting in the classroom waiting for the snow to start so they will end school early!!!
OK to the point of my post. When making my final option decisions I did as much research as I could on charging stations... I know about chargepoint, some Google maps, DOE charging map, etc. but the conclusion I came to is that there are very few DC Fast Charge stations (esp. on the East Coast). What is the barrier to entry preventing the development of DC Fast Charge stations? I would think that every RV park in America could easily install a DC Fast Charge station (electrical infrastructure already exists) and I know that I for one would pay a hefty price if they could recharge my battery in 30-60 min.
There are a number of products out there... Eaton makes one with a credit card reader and Wi-Fi, it's also integrates with Chargpoint (whatever value that provides)... http://www.eaton.com/Eaton/ProductsServices/Electrical/ProductsandServic...
So, my question to those with more knowledge of the EV market, why aren't these popping up all over the place?
