I finally got around to starting this blog tonight. I found out that I would become an Electronaut a few weeks ago. Since then I have been waiting and researching (and selling our old car).
I hope to share my experience with my forthcoming BMW ActiveE. I have had some experience with EVs after restoring and then converting my '67 VW Beetle into a VOLTSwagen, but I know my experience with be much different with my ActiveE.
My new car should be arriving at Wagner BMW tomorrow, March 16, and I hope to take the keys sometime early next week.
Also, on its way is my Coulomb Technologies CT503 EVSE wall unit so that I will be able to charge at 220V and 30Amps (4-5hrs for 0 to 100%). I am participating in the ChargePoint America program where I was able to get the EVSE for free and only had to pay for installation.
