Is there a list map or app of charging sites nationwide?

Hello,
I am planning to drive my Roadster From Palos Verdes, South of Los Angeles, To Yosemite National Park. I need to find 220 volt power in Bakersfield and Oakhurst.
Last time I drove out of L.A. I charged at an auto repair shop.
Do you have any Information about charging EV's in the San Jouaquin valley?
Thanks.
Bob Fisher

evchargermaps.com is generally used to find charging sites, but it has been a while since it has been updated. Supposedly somebody at Tesla is working on a Tesla-specific map, but there is no ETA. I use evchargermaps.com to find HPCs, and then a campground directory to fill in the holes.

Jack, do you know how/when the Yreka and Orland units got put in? In early April I drove from Seattle to San Diego. From Woodland to San Diego was easy because there were HPCs, but from Seattle to Woodland was a real pain because I had to use campgrounds.

Some of us in WA are working on getting some more HPCs in...in fact, soon we might have the whole west coast covered. The ones in Ferndale WA, Portland OR and Roseburg OR are not installed yet, but once they are somebody can go from Vancouver BC to Tijuana Mexico using nothing but HPCs.

Map: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=104924008962655183586.0...

Iphone app: EVcharger finder.

Could someone create this map for the East Coast Tesla HPCs?
(equivalent to http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=104924008962655183586.0...)
Obviously we have one in NYC at the showroom (and the public garage across the street), and you can add my home at zip code 07733 and a contact phone of 917-345-7681.
I'm sure there are lots more on the Boston/RI/CT to NYC to Phili to DC route!
we like to take road trips on the East Coast, too!

Orland was turned on in June, and Yreka was operational in early July. I used both of them earlier this week on a two-day drive from Sacramento to Seattle. Exciting to see the Northwest chargers going in! There is an RV park in Bakersfield (River Run RV?) I used on a trip to Vegas. It's right next to a Hilton Garden Inn and several other hotels. Don't know about Oakhurst but you can always seach Googlemaps for RV parks and then call to verify that they have available 50A outlets. Generally, I'm not aware of any HPCs in LA area ( other than the Newport Beach Tesla showroon) or on the East Coast, but if anyone has info they can certainly post here!

Effective August 26th, Roadster owners are welcome to use my 70amp HPC in Solana Beach when I'm home (so plan ahead). We're a 20min walk from anything, but I'll toss in a beer and a comfy seat on my back patio. Best way to contact me is by email at jason (at) jknapp (dot) net, but if you're in a pinch you can call me at 858-720-1371.

Regards,
Jason

MichaelE,
Evchargernews.com doesn't intend to discriminate against the east. You can submit information on new sites to updates.evchargernews.com and they should get put in, whenever they start adding new sites. It's been over a year since they added any new sites though.

I believe you need to send emails to updates@evchargernews.com. I couldn't get to a website at updates.evchargernews.com.

My colleagues and I have created a new website called Recargo (http://www.recargo.com) that makes it easy to add new charger locations as well as find existing chargers. Recargo shares data with evchargernews.com and we are working with infrastructure providers to make sure new charging stations get listed as they are installed. Please give it a try and let us know how we can serve the EV community better.

Jack, I will email Tom Dowling with these new charger locations.

Evchargernews.com is way behind in updates because of some sort of technical problem. If there are any web gurus who would like to volunteer to help out, I'm sure Tom would welcome help.

We are a UK charity and have started the development of an open source database of charge points worldwide;

http://openchargemap.sourceforge.net

We hope that making this database open source will encourage the community to support and maintain the data. We also hope that the third party website and app developers will use the database to prevent duplication of effort in the future.

We are deploying several thousand charge points in the UK and the prospect of uploading an maintaining the site details on 20+ different databases was mind blowing...

I just thought about asking if there is any global map for chargers anywhere, and then you post this. Thanks for reading my mind. :-)

Chad,

Do you know the charge rate for the new Eugene charger at Sequential Biofuels? I called them up but the person I talked to wasn't sure.

Jack

Charged at the Hyatt Lake Tahoe (Incline Village) this weekend using my mobile charger. The 14-50 outlet is on an extension cord located next to some stairs about 50 feet straight out from the main entrance. They're so used to Roadsters charging during hotel stays that they don't even give you a hard time for driving into the vallet area.

Jack

I've heard there is a Tesla charger at the Canary Hotel in Santa Barbara, but haven't been there to verify it.

Jack

JackB,
The Canary Hotel is only a block away from the Parking Lot #7 with Avcon in Santa Barbara so there is a viable overnight option nearby either way. I'll try to check the Hotel itself if I get to SB again soon too. A true Tesla connector would definitely beat carrying an Avcon converter box.

Jack,

The owner of Sequential Biofuels in Eugene OR said that he wouldn't charge Tesla owners that want to charge on my HPC there.

I told him he could, given that he paid for installation and there's not really much shopping we can do at his service station. I suggested that he try to get advertising dollars from the restaurant and hotel next door.

For anybody going South on I-5 from Eugene, you can't reach the next HPC (in Yreka CA). But check out Seven Feathers casino in Canyonville OR. They are thinking of putting one in, and for now they have 14-50's in the campground, along with a free shuttle to the casino, hotels, restaurants, etc. Tell them how much you would appreciate an HPC there!

Is Tesla working with cities/municipalities about establishing/locating charging stations, or is this electrical infrastructure evovling on its own?

All of Tesla's resources are going into the R&D for the cars they're building, and the tech they need to build to make them work. Cities & States are making the move towards infrastructure on their own, or being prompted by the larger car companies jumping on Tesla's wagon (Nissan's Leaf, the Mini-E, etc).

With customers spread across the globe, I can see how Tesla wouldn't want to get into the position of deciding which of there customers gets charging infrastructure provide near them and which don't. It makes sense to leave this up to businesses that want to attract Tesla's and owners who want to have infrastructure to support their lives.
They are doing a great job in taking care of the cars and putting more of them on the road. I'm glad they are sticking to their plan.
We've now heard (http://www.motortrend.com/features/consumer/1010_tesla_open_house/index....) that Tesla is developing a J-1772 "J" adapter to allow Tesla owners to use these standardized yet slower charging stations that are starting to pop up around the world!
Go Tesla!

After a long saga over logistics, Dale Garcia is working to get an HPC installed in Portland General Electric's downtown Portland parking garage - hopefully before the end of the year (Tesla gave me a discount on the donated charger because it went to a public charging site). Now if we can place one more charger to fill the Yreka/Eugene gap, the "West Coast Tesla Highway" will be complete from border to border. I agree the Seven Feathers location is a good one. Their management has said no to a charger on the casino side, but the RV park is a 5-star facility and may still be a possibility. There's also an upscale Best Western that's walkable from the RV Park that would be a good overnight spot. I've met twice in the past year with a hotel owner in Sutherlin who is on the fence, but with the Eugene charger in place it probably doesn't make sense to go that far North.

Thanks for all your efforts on this. That would be some serious bragging rights on the side of EVs if the West Coast gets connected with dedicated chargers without a huge federal project.

I've consolidated a lot of the above mentioned sites into a Google map; you can access it via

http://teslachargermaps.com

I include only those known to work with Teslas (ie no inductive sites).

Please email me with any additions / updates at "bill@arnett.us.com".

Hi Bill. Would you consider adding your sites to the OpenChargeMap project? We are developing an open database of charge site locations and capabilities which maps such as yours can use as the source of their data. Your's is the 31'st charge map website and the number is growing by roughly one per week …

Many thanks for your consideration.

www.openchargemap.org

Question about that www.openchargemap.org site. I don't see anything useful in that webpage, how are you supposed to use it?

The current site has been used to solicit support for the idea of creating an open database. We currently have six people involved in the project and we are working on the first release of the database and integration with one of the existing iPhone apps. Everything we produce will be fully open and free.

Once the site is 'live' then we will have a mechanism for allowing people to contribute data. We are currently working our way through several thousands sites worldwide.

I think we desperately need an open database.. the number of charge point map websites is growing quickly (we are aware of 31 sites).. I already have to consult five resources when looking for charge points in the UK…

Ah, so that site isn't yet "live", as you said it. Try not to restrict your site to iPhone, most people don't have such a device. Also just plain map in website would be great.

I agree with iPhone restriction (or emphasis or focus) ... don't. Plain map website would be great.

We have no restrictions in terms of apps or websites that use the OpenChargeMap database… the iPhone app is first because the third party developer stepped forward and wanted to use the database. I expect it to be the first of many apps on many different platforms.

We will have maps on the website based on Google Maps and OpenStreetMap. However, we really hope that many third party developers will use the database to create amazing resources that we all can use. We want to encourage everyone to use the same database to minimise the replication of effort and to ensure the data remains open for us all (something that does not happen to the data submitted to websites today).

For the record, I have reached out to most (all?) of the existing websites asking them to work with us to create an open database. To-date, none of the websites have supported our efforts….
