Did you discuss use of the space & outlets with anyone from the park, or just go for it? We just renewed our membership and it's a good time of year to visit the park, so I'm keen to make a similar trip - we have plenty of range to get there and back without needing to plug in, but just demonstrating the principle has great appeal.

Besides, it's always nice to have options. It would be nice to be able to take the scenic route home, just 'cause, or go out for nice dinner, or hit the mall, or...

Great thread and pics! I'll have to pass time reading these posts until my little LEAF is weaned and I gain custody. Hopefully, sooner than June... :)

The other LEAF was already there, and had the box unlocked, so I just went for it. We were there for three hours and so I figure we probably gained about 14 miles of range from L1 charging. That covered our round trip. It's just kinda fun to use public charging, even if it was my own EVSE. When the charging infrastructure goes in, I plan to use it extensively.

Just FYI, I sent an email to SD Zoo asking if they offered or would consider offering charging - here's the response, and maybe others of you would contact them about this too? It would be a 44- mile drive for me with some pretty substantial hills, so charging there would be a necessity for me to get there.

Thank you for your email and your interest in the San Diego Zoo and the San
Diego Zoo Safari Park.

We currently do not have a 120V or 220v plug-in.

The San Diego Zoo is constantly researching and implementing suggestions
with the goal of improving both of our facilities, the San Diego Zoo and
the Safari Park.  Suggestions received from visitors such as you have
helped us target a number of areas where we can improve and are responsible
for our world-class reputation.  Please be assured that your suggestions
have been forwarded to our Operations Department for review.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your suggestions and we hope to
see you again!

I will own one of Nissan's all-electric Leaf cars next month, and was
curious if either of your locations provides either 120V or preferably 220V
plug-in charging, or would consider offering this in the future?  Battery
electric cars are great for the environment and having SD Zoo support these
by offering charge points would seem to be great way to encourage "green"
technology use.

How many of these dual-RV panels (or RV parking spots) are there,
and where are they located?

It seems like one has a much better chance of "feeding" there,
than at the L2 ICE Charging Stations. :lol:
