I just got back from an event called Convene for Green in North Las Vegas, attended by people with interests in clean energy, including EVs. People from government, private industry and utilities were there. They asked me to bring the S by for people to see at the new public chargers at City Hall. Of course it was a hit (how could it not be, sitting next to a Volt and a Leaf). One of the guys there told me that free Level 2 chargers were just installed in Primm, NV, which is on the state line along I-15. They should be operational very soon. He disappeared before I could ask specifically where they are. Even a Level 2 charger will be very handy in Primm, for those who find that they are short on power to get into Las Vegas or want a bit of a boost to get to Barstow. I'm still hoping for a SC there, and it makes a lot of sense, but this will help tide us over. There was also talk of putting chargers at the parking lot for the Welcome to Las Vegas sign on Las Vegas Blvd. south of Russell. I'm not sure how much practical use a charger there would be, but it's a start.
