Well, I stopped at the Cracker Barrel in Stewart’s Ferry this evening, to check out the food for my Nissan LEAF 100% elrctric car. And found the DC Fast charger here working just fine, charging to 90%. While I was waiting I had to consume a wonderful Blackberry Cobbler ala Cracker Barrel, awesome!

This morning I checked on the Cracker Barrel DC fast charger after about 2 months of down time, to find out that it is up and running, charged to 90% without a problem, thank you Ecotality.

The solar assisted charging station in Franklin, TN are being prepared for there first employment at Nissan HQ. The charge site consists of 9 AV chargers, so no RFID card is required. I would hope that Nissan will let the current LEAF owners know when the christning party is going down.
