ECOtality came out and did a presentation on their Blink Charging Stations (Blink Network Website).  They brought a demo Level 2 charging station with them and documentation on level 3.  We were really impressed with their equipment and how knowledgeable they are about their product and other competitors products.  We actually learned some neat features of some of his competitors that they themselves didn’t tell us about.  But this Blink Network really looks cool and sounds like they really have listened to EV drivers and are looking at business opportunities to really be in it for the long haul.

We then just generally talked about EVs in a group discussion.   Mike told us about possibly donating a vehicle to NTEAA.  We will have to discuess this further as to what we could do with this vehicle, but it presents some good opportunities for some educational purposes.  We heard a little bit more about Mike H.’s new EV truck and went and looked at Mike B.’s Plug in Prius in the parking lot.  He has made his own version of a plug in prius that looks really great.  Hopefully Mike B. will put some pictures of his prius on his website shortly.

We will need to schedule more upcoming meeting.  We are open for suggestions for a location.  If you have  a suggestion please email us at nteaa.org@gmail.com and that will go to the NTEAA officers to review.
