Oh, one more thing. I work at Robins AFB in bldg 228. We share a huge parking lot with about seven or eight other bldgs. At times I have seen two other Leafs in the parking lot. In talking with my salesman at 5 star Nissan, they do not have any Leafs on the lots and have sold all they can get their hands on. I know they have had some sit on the lot but I don't know for how long.

It would be nice if there were a few L2s and maybe a L3 at or near the North Georgia Premium Outlet Stores too. Oh and the North Springs MARTA station! :shock:

It isn't 100% electric if you have to put gas in it.

In any case Car Stations has this on it's database Plug share and of course Nissan's navigation does not. It seems Nissan (or the agent running it) wants to charge Bibb county to have it's chargers placed on the Nissan Navigation Maps.


I haven't seen any GE stations with card swipes like that before. Each network is a bit different. For the Blink stations, I punch my timer button, open the charge port, then swipe my card (it also asks my zip code), then I plug in. It feels like I'm on minute to win it, but I try to make sure the car and the station are both ready to go when I plug in. Once you have used a station, your nav will remember it, so I like to plug in to new ones that are along my way. Eventually they will trickle in through CarWings too.

Jim McC, I have heard a rumor about a Level 3 going in to an outlet mall that is on the way to Clayton, which is also supposed to get one. So maybe that is yours, unless there is another outlet mall out that way. There are supposed to be at least 15 QCs in Altanta, but no signs of them yet that I have heard. There are L2s at Manuel's Tavern, where the EV club meets, One more reason to come!

The outlet stores I am talking about, are on GA 400 in Dawsonville. I wonder if Claton outlet stores are connected to Dawsonville outlets.

Good to know about charging at Manuel's Tavern, I looked it up on Google and figured I wouldn't make it there and back without a recharge. And I didn't think I wanted to show up to a EV meeting with an ICE. :shock:

I called MARTA several weeks ago to ask about chrging at North Springs station but they said there was nothing there. So I suggested they should get charging stations set up. I have no idea if they have any intention of acting on my suggestion, knowing they are cash strapped and complaining about funding.

The first L3 in GA will appear at a Chevron gas station in Buckhead. Once it does then things should start rolling. Instead of "donating" L3s to the city of Atlanta over a year ago, Nissan should have installed those at the willing dealerships (or gas stations like they did with Murphy in Chattanooga) which I also think is a plan. I can't wait but it really is taking too long...

A friend who checks out a LOT of charging stations, but lives in Atlanta says the station needed a reset after a power outage but should be back online.check out recargo.com for the explanation. It is a good place to checking when you have had goo or bad charging experiences.

And Jim CM, sorry for the transposition!

No worries, Jim. I just thought I would clear it up.

Hey I found my old post from years ago..

As I was driving by the North Georgia Premium outlets this morning I saw this out of the corner of my eye. I had to turn around and go get a better look. I thought you folks would like to see too.

A ChaDeMo charger and two regular 240 volt charging stations, are in the back parking lot at the the North Georgia Premium outlets in Dawsonville near Lumpkin Campground rd. and the Goodwill donation trailer.

This is not in service yet and does not appear on plugshare yet. but it looks promising.. :D

this looks very promising but I've had my Leaf since Dec of 2011. I have now bought out the lease. So the white dragon is now Mine, all Mine. In any case, I have only seen one public charger (L-2) in middle GA that is truely open to the public. And that one is at bibb county court house in Macon. I wish they would put some more in the malls in Macon. And at the science center, some more at the venues down town. Last time I went to the Grand another leaf had my spot at the charger.
