I am putting together a charging station package to take to
Businesses, Churches and Cities in my area. I will be including the
charging station stickers that I have posted.
I will be using this letter as a cover letter for my charging
Let me know what you think.
ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING
Thank you for considering being a part of the electric vehicle infrastructure by letting electric vehicle owners use a 120-volts outlets at your church, place of business, or city/town.
Although the public is not fully aware of it yet, the fact is that electric vehicles are here now. I have most likely driven one here to deliver this message. These vehicles are in full production and are not custom vehicles. Anyone could purchase one today. In the very near future, especially with gas prices rising, there will be more of these vehicles on the roads. Here are a few things to consider when you are thinking about allowing electric vehicle charging at your location.
• These vehicles use a standard 120-volts, 20-amp plug in. There is no new equipment to install, no changes to make. These vehicles use regular extension cords. They plug in just like a lamp in your home does.
• The cost to charge an electric vehicle for an hour is less than 25 cents.
ADVANTAGES FOR BUSINESS, CHURCHES AND CITIES/TOWNS
People will be drawn to your location. They will need to stay in that location for 15 minutes to 30 minutes to get enough charge to head to their next destination.
In that time they could be:
1. Shopping in a local store.
2. Having coffee or a sandwich in a restaurant.
3. Attending church.
4. Walking in a city/town park.
NOW YOU’RE THE “OIL COMPANY”
As more Americans begin to buy and use electric vehicles we will find ways to recoup the small cost of charging. One possible way could be by the use of a "charging meter" placed next to a parking place. A person would be charged for the amount of time they use a public outlet by either a charging meter (much like a parking meter) in the case of a city/town, or a flat charge in the case of a business. Now you’re the “oil company.” You would be receiving part of the revenue that the oil companies are receiving now. You are also stopping the flow of oil money to terrorists while you are helping improve the quality of air our citizens breathe every day. You will also be helping to drop oil prices by lowering the overall demand for oil when you help more people use electric vehicles.
NO SPECIAL TREATMENT NEEDED
Electric vehicle owners need infrastructure. They do not need special “electric vehicle parking only” or close to building parking. A regular 120-volts outlet on a light pole in a location that is the least used area in a parking lot will work the best.
ONE MORE ADVANTAGE
Your business, church or city/town will be added to web sites on the Internet. These websites let people know where they can charge when they are in your area. You will be known as an entity that is:
• Helping Americans to be free from foreign oil
• Stopping the flow of oil money to terrorists
• Helping to clean the air we breathe and improve our environment
• Encouraging shopping locally
For now there are very few electric vehicles on the road but with your help there will be more. Just like all vehicles, electric vehicles need infrastructure. When there were few roads, there were few cars. The difference here is that you don’t need to build a road; you just need to say “yes”.
Thank You for your time. Please contact me with any questions you might have.
