FYI. In Saturday's LA Times (3/24/12), page one Business section, there is an article that California has reached a $120 million settlement with NRG Energy. Most of this settlement will be used to construct 200 public fast charging stations and install wiring for 10,000 plug in units in 1,000 locations . The NRG settlement stemmed from the accusation that NRG and Dynegy inflated costs on long term power contracts during CA’s 2000 power crisis.
The article further mentioned how this will help the sales of EVs, and of the 11,000 Nissan Leafs sold, 40% were in California.
