Posted 05-12-2014 in Reviews by Christopher

EV Quorum hosts the Electric Car Guest Drive, a series of events where prospective EV drivers meet with current EV drivers who share information about what it's like to drive an electric car daily, as their primary transportation. Electric Car Guest Drive provides information about electric cars, residential and public charging stations, and charging from renewable sources like solar panels.
The purpose of Electric Car Guest Drive is to build awareness about electric cars, provide an educational resource for the community, and develop personal relationships with other members of the EV Quorum car club.

EV Charging Stations aka EVSE

Posted 04-02-2014 in Reviews by Christopher

An electric car charging station is usually the first accessory that a new EV driver purchases for their car. A charge cord comes with every electric car sold but in the US almost all of them are 120 volt trickle chargers. A 120v charge cord only provides about 4 miles of range per hour. If you don't drive very much, that might be enough to get by. If you charge for 12 hours, that's 48 miles. Most people opt for a 240v charger rated between 16-30 amps. Those units provide between 10 to 20 miles of range per hour of charge. That allows you to come home from work, charge for an hour or two, and be ready to go back out for a drive that evening. It also helps ensure that you can charge within the cheapest rate window offered by your utility.

EV Quorum History

Posted 04-02-2014 in Reviews by Christopher

The concept of EV Quorum slowly took shape as a result of encounters that occurred at EV charge points all over San Diego. I'd been involved in a few car clubs when I was in my early 20s, but none infused with the rare authenticity and courtesy shown by EV drivers sharing a chance meeting at the charging pump. There was the seed crystal of a growing community.
