Your picture clearly shows the ChargePro lit up, but when I was there on 3/17/2012 it was offline and the manager said it wasn't in service yet. I could have used the charge that night too.

Crap, my bad. You clearly posted about the one in Poway. The one that is not in service is the one on Midway drive. I'm sorry about that. :oops: It's this one that's not in service as of 3/17. Walgreens (ChargePro) - 3005 Midway Dr - 1 unit (free) They do look about the same.

Re: San Diego - Current List of Public Charging Stations

Tried to register for a SemaCharge card today and got almost all the way through their process (including giving up my CC info), but the promised email with the verification code never came. I called the 24/7 customer service number but since they're back east I was told that they were closed for the day (so it's not really 24/7 if you don't have a VERY simple question/problem beyond something like: "where's my promised email?").

There was no option on their website for the "free card" to use only on the free chargers (which I'd heard about). We'll see if the $20.00 card ever arrives or I get a response to my phone call. This reminds me of trying to register with the ChargePoint folks. Lame website interface that doesn't work on a Mac with either Firefox or Internet Exploder and an even lamer guy on the phone from Mumbai who seemed to try really hard to understand what my issue was, but in the end was as useless as tits on a boar. Gave him all my info and my issues over a month ago and haven't heard boo back from them yet. Shocker. Guess I'll try it again on a Windoze machine at work sometime if I still care to ever use their ONE 110V charger in the entire county. :-P

Also sent SemaCharge an email inquiring about the date for a planned Android app (they have an iPhone one). I'll let you know if I hear anything.

Why do you need a SemaCharge card? The only stations in SD are the Walgreens and they don't need a card, you just plug in.

I have been by SDG&E's Energy Innovation Center on Clairemont Mesa Avenue several times in the last few months and there's a DC charger there but I was told yesterday that it's for SDG&E Fleet LEAFs only :-(. Do you have any more information Randy?

Yes, the JFE DC Fast Charger at the EIC location is part of a utility R&D project. It has a built-in battery pack so that the grid demand is reduced while the battery/charger can charge a car at the full DC FC rate. It is looking like a very nice product. It has been tested successfully with a generator as the power source, but is not fully connected to the grid just yet. Once the permit process is completed and signed off, it will be connected to the grid and placed in-service.

The information you received is correct about the charger being for utility Fleet vehicles at this time. This is due to a CPUC decision (Alternative Fuel Vehicle OIR) that came out last summer prohibiting utilities from owning public charging infrastructure (among other things).

If anything changes, I'll certainly let the group know...
