    Hello everyone.

    I am working on a project called "Recargo" which will include a free, comprehensive database of all publicly available charging sites, similar to EVChargerMaps.com. We are working on a website and iPhone app.

    This has to be a community effort. We need to enter all of the charging sites that are already out there. If you know of any (not just Tesla sites) please drop me an email: dan (at) recargo (dot) com or reply to this thread.

    Also: if you are interested in helping out with this project, please let me know. We can use all the help we can get.

    Thanks!
    Dan O.

    Thanks TEG. Evchargingnews and evchargingmaps are actually the same site, run by the amazing Tom Dowling. He has been a great help and an invaluble resource.

    Yes, from your first post I wasn't sure if you knew about the text version or just the Google maps integrated version. Gathering data is probably a lot easier from the "news" version rather than the "maps" version.

    His is the best current resource that I know of for California.

    Do you have commercial aspirations for your site?
    For instance do you plan banner ads once you get it fully populated with location data?
