Point Reyes Station Hub
We’ve leased office space in the old Livery Stable in Point Reyes Station and have opened our first Charging Hub in the parking spaces right outside the doors.
How to Charge
The level-2 J-1772 charger is free to use. Just plug in.
The Level-3 CHAdeMO charger is now free too. To activate use the Sunspeed/ Greenlots RFID card on a chain toward the left side of the charger.
The Level-2 pay-to-charge unit we had malfunctioned, so it’s been temporarily replaced with a non-commercial unit until the charger with credit card reader arrives.
The level-3 charger has had intermittent connectivity issues that prevented remote access. Rather than leave drivers stranded, we’ll let drivers charge for free until the new charger is installed. We expect to upgrade the CHAdeMO charger with a CHAdeMO/SAE-Combo charger that will also accept standard credit cards this summer.
