    Car chargers in Ocala becoming more prominent

    A Tesla Model S is shown plugged into the Electric Car Charging Station on the Ocala Downtown Square in Ocala, Florida, on Friday, June 5, 2015. The charging station was installed by Pearson Nissan and the City of Ocala recently, but it is not in a reserved parking space specifically for electric vehicles. If a conventional, gas or diesel-powered car were in the regular/metered parking space, a person with an electric car would not be able to get a charge on their batteries.

    I prefer that chargers be installed in parking lots if possible. Parking spaces on the street always seem less abundant than those in a parking lot. Plus, in a lot, the charger can be located in an out-of-the way spot where it is less likely to get ICEd. But, regardless, hurray for Ocala for adding another charging option. The more, the better.

    Is this a J1772 plug? Hard to tell from the picture.
