It's fun being an earlier adopter of electric cars. I'm not as early an adopter as some electric car enthusiasts, but, having driven an all-electric car for almost four years now, I'm definitely mostly at the forefront off the EV revolution.
It's truly amazing how little most people in the United States know about electric cars.
I wish that not all CCS/Level 3/"Fast" electric vehicle chargers were in metro areas, especially out here in the American West. I just decided not to drive my Chevy Bolt from Denver to my sister's in Goleta, Calif. (1,200 miles one way) for Christmas because there is not a SINGLE CCS charger along I-70/I-15 between Denver and Fillmore, Utah, 511 miles west of Denver.
In September of 2013, a megastorm that caused massive flooding along Colorado's Front Range hit. At the time, my family and I were living in a single family home in Aurora, Colo. -- complete with a 5.5 kW solar system we had had installed in June of 2010.
So, I drove my newly leased Chevy Bolt — a red LT — from my townhome in Littleton, Colo. to Estes Park, Colo. to attend a meditation retreat this weekend.
