  1. Networks

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    I am a new volt owner. I am going to be traveling a little and was looking for charging stations in cities that I would be in. I am very confused by some of the costs of charing stations. If you are a member of the blink network and pay $0.40/kWh, you would be spending 18.4 * 0.4 = $7.36 to go...

  3. Need more public/private charging stations

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I just got the Volt about a week ago and loving it. My long roundtrip commute requires charging the VOLT twice because I need 80 miles+. I'm waiting for my charging unit at home (Bosch vs. clippercreek) because 12 hours of charge only gives me about 31 miles. My biggest gripe is that my...
  4. Do all charging stations perform the same?

    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging I have had my 2015 Volt for a month now and am realizing more and more how much easier it would be if I had a quick charging option at home. That being said, there are alot of options and they all seem to be very different in price. I need one that can...

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Hi all, Up until now there is only one hotel in all of downtown Richmond, VA that has a single charging station.

  7. Unpublished SemaCharge Stations in Northern VA

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've found a total of 6 SemaCharge stations in Reston, VA. They are not listed on SemaCharge and by that, not on PlugShare. Two of them are located at 12001 Sunrise Valley Dr. Another 4 are located in Plaza America Dr in parking garages (not paid parking). They seem to turn these off at...
  8. Coin operated public charging station market?

    Electric Vehicle Batteries & Plug-In Charging
    Will we ever see coin operated public charging stations? :confused: The current business model used by companies like Chargepoint is not beneficial to their customers. You get a company like Chargepoint to install a charging station and you pay a one-time installation cost between $5,000 and...

  10. eVgo Network Charging Stations Coming to the DC area

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    At the DC sociability run I met a representative from eVgo and had a nice discussion with him about the new charging stations they are rolling out in the DC area. They already have a number of stations in Texas. However, that is a bit out of my range :). There is one they put into Trader...
  11. Tesla’s Solar Powered Charging Stations Could Destroy Them

    Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Competitors
    I'm not quite sure what to make of this one: Well, if it's on the internet it has to be true, right? Anyhow, aren't there adapter things to address "the proprietory<sic> electrical plug" issue? --RCB

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I work in Portland Oregon and my company just moved to Chargepoint chargers. Charging costs $1.20 per hour. It is a 240V level 2 charger. How much do charging stations cost in your area? mike witteman Witteblog -- Thoughts on the coming wave of electric cars

  14. Possible to Upload CharePoint Stations as POI's in Navigation system?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I've found I can upload pre-packaged Points of Interest (POIs) into my TomTom and Garmin GPS units. Is there a way to download, then upload charging station locations into the factory navigation system? I know there are some good apps for the phone and sending charging locations through the...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I have had my Volt #1569 for about 2 months now. I'm am the first Volt sold in the state of Minnesota, and as such there is a very limited charging network established in the Twin Cities. I have been working with a few "green city advisors" and business to get more and more chargers installed...

    Hello Fellow Voltec Coloradans. I decided to drive to Dallas Tx to get a Red and loaded 2011 Volt :-) I snapped this pic on the way back (crossing from Kansas) and figured it was a good Thread kickoff pic. Curious who else has a Volt or has one on order? I seen posts from gieso up in...
