I helped my daughter move into her new place in Atlanta this weekend. We had to stop at the power company office to setup her account. And in the front parking lot they had 3 parking spots with a Chademo, a j1772 DC combo Fast charger, and two J1772s for the ultimate in flexibility. I've never seen a Chademo until now.

Too bad it was miles way from her apartment, and she doesn't have an EV. I wish my power company provided charging stations.

Georgia Power is very EV conscious. They have a low rate plan only for Plug-in owners, which means I pay 1.32 cents per KwH between 11:00PM and 7:00AM.

Oh, and you folks in Atlanta need to be warned, my daughter's Subaru brings snow with it wherever she takes it. Snowageddons 1 and 2 in IL followed by blizzards the last two years in Boston. Atlanta is next, for at least the next 8 years (med school and PHD program at Emory)

It only takes about 2-3" for Atlanta to reach 'Snowageddon' status.

Should be an interesting 8 years.

I joined charge point through their website though they are not my power provider. My power provider; GreyStone; refuses to even reply to my inquiries about EV support or reduced rates for night charging. they have installed new meters across the counties they serve but not to help conserve or better use electricity but mostly so they can electronically shut people off who pay late

Reminds me of my job interview with IBM Research Triangle Park in 1990. It started to snow, and they shut down the factory. They had 6" of snow, closed down the airport, all the grocery stores were emptied of food, and here I am, driving around because I'm from IL and used to the stuff looking for something to do until the airport reopened.
