    Hi Gene, got a couple questions for you about this location, actually. I was one of your first EV owners to visit a couple years ago, before you installed anything. I charged using a wall outlet, which as you know is super slow but it does add miles over time.

    We have your location described on Plugshare, which is the (free) service that EV owners use to find stations like these : PlugShare - Find Electric Vehicle Charging Locations Near You

    The questions:

    1. The Tesla HPWC station was originally described as "100 Amp circuit" but the station only delivers 32 Amps (confirmed by multiple people) so I adjusted the description. Maybe you have a 100A subpanel, but 40A feeding the HPWC?

    2. Somebody said that you have a Level 2 station now, for all non-Tesla EVs, which would be awesome! Do you have another station there, or just the Tesla station? If you do have another station, can you provide a picture of it?

    3. Somewhere your station was described as a "Chargepoint" station. Chargepoint is a specific company that makes (rather expensive but very good) charging stations, and Chargepoint's system does not show one at your location. Was that just a an error in the description, or do you really have a Chargepoint station? A recent visitor told me that he did NOT see a Chargepoint station here.

    Hi Chris
    We have 2 charging stations now, both level 2. A Tesla charger (for Tesla's obviously) and a Chargepoint charger for SAE plugged cars (Volts, Leafs, BMW i's, etc). Both chargers have been there a year now, and located next to each other by our covered garage. We have everything covered. Not sure where you saw the description you had to change. We have a 100A subpanel, and the charger is 40A delivery.
