Irksome… Awesome charging location found with 32 Level 2 Free charging…

So… I was out and about a few weeks age and decided to try out a public charging station that had quite a bit of chargers, according to Plugshare.

So, off we went to the City of Industry Metrolink Station. It was reported to have 32 Aerovironment Level 2 stations. This was a sight I wanted to see.

Now, I had slightly over half a charge left, so, if I was careful, I could’ve made it back home in the charge that I had, but… I like to have some room to really drive the Active E like a BMW if I wanted to or needed to, so I like to charge.

Luckily, the SCAQMD site in Diamond Bar was less around 2 miles away, so I went there to charge instead.

Anyway, it is always important to have alternates picked out if it turns out that the public charging station you identify ends up being taken or closed.

    1. I like checking out new charging spots… This particular one popped up on my radar because it was listed as having 32 Level 2 EVSEs.

      Went there on a Saturday, and the entire lot was closed off and gated shut. And the lot is closed from Friday night until Monday morning.

      A little irksome and seems like a waste of good charging infrastructure that is sitting idle.
