    Looking to travel to Louisville, KY in November. There appears to be only 1 public station at the U of L parking garage which will be a significant distance from where we will be staying. Does anyone know of a place to charge in the downtown central business district?

    Louisville looks pretty sparce on PlugShare.com.

    Maybe you can find a business that has a 6-50 or 4-50 outlet, like a machine shop or body shop.

    Another option would be anyplace that offers RV parking with "50 Amp Service" (14-50). Maybe a convention center.

    You could also call the chamber of commerce and ask.

    Good Luck,

    To make matters worse, the public charger at the U of L is restricted access, so unless you have a student parking pass, you cannot get to it.

    How long will you be there? If you are going to be there for a few days, your best bet may be level 1. I have charged my volt from a 120 outlet in the parking garage next to the Hyatt Regency hotel downtown.

    Sorry, I've got nothing for you. I do have to travel there for business every now and then, so please let us know if you find anything.
