Charging Station 14th and U St, NW
We’re thinking about ditching our ’97 Oldsmobile. We’d love to get an electric, like the Nissan Leaf – we’ll avoid fuel costs and auto repair bills. Only one problem: we rent, and our building doesn’t have a carport or garage. So we can’t get a home charger installed.
I’ve been reading for a couple of hours now and the results seem mixed, so I’m hoping you’ll put it to blog readers: is an electric car a good idea under these circumstances? What is the public charging station situation like in DC? Anyone already have a Volt and have any experience with this?”
You can charge up at 14th and U St, NW. What do you guys think – would you get an electric car without being able to have a home charger? I guess it depends how long it takes to recharge?
