Delray Beach Public Charging Stations Open

car shows | Posted by admin May 5th, 2011

The dedication ceremony for the city of Delray Beaches new charging stations was today. I attended the event by driving the EVGT-40 and got to test out the J-1772 connector at my first public charging station.

We had 7 electric cars at the event including 3 new Chevy Volts. My EVGT-40 was at the center of attention again as they set up the podium right in front of it.

Our own Charles Whalen gave an excellent speech despite not being prepared to speak. Not only did he donate the equipment, but also handed the vice mayor a check to pay the first years electricity which should be less than $500. A fraction of the cost they already spend on lighting.

Evan Axelbank of NBC Channel 5 West Palm Beach News called on me this evening and asked to do an interview.  They  were doing a pre-story on the opening of the new charging stations in Delray Beach which officially open tomorrow.   Evan and his photographer came out to my home and interviewed me about my car and how having the charging stations will impact owners of electric cars.  I got a chance to take Mr. Axelbank for a ride and give him a taste of what driving an electric car feels like.

The story aired on the 11:00 news.
