Gas Pump EVSE

Mon Jul 25, 2016 7:56 am

This last weekend my wife spied this charging station at Green Springs Inn near Ashland, Oregon. PlugShare link: https://api.plugshare.com/view/location/10612 Nearby Brammo (electric motorcycles) evidently helped with the install. Great use for old gas pumps!

Old habits die hard... clearly.

Fun, unique public EVSEs

I haven't been to this place yet, but I saw it on PlugShare's local activity list:

I've seen a few unique EVSEs like this (old gas pumps are popular), but mostly in private use. Does anyone know of other public installations like this, that break the usual molds?

wmcbrine, those EVSEs are really creative and I guess that as long as they're not painted red they can't be mistaken for their original purpose. Great second-use for a rugged enclosure. I merged a previous topic into your thread as your title is all-encompassing. Anyone else?
