On Saturday, December 8, 2012, Tempe-based GoE3 will unveil the first Level 3 EVSE in Southern Arizona at Picacho, Arizona. The precise location is the Shell station at the Bowlin Travel Plaza on I-10 (Exit 219, southeast side of the highway.) Assisting in the coordination of this event is the Pima Association of Government Clean Cities Coalition (Tucson) and Valley of The Sun Clean Cities Coalition (Phoenix.)
The general public is welcome to attend from 12:00 Noon to 5:00PM on December 8. Highlights include a ribbon-cutting speech from Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett at 2:30PM. Within eye-shot of the new Level 3 installation is Picacho Peak, a fossilized volcano that provides a stunning desert landmark and the site of the western-most battle of the U.S. Civil War in 1862.
The GoE3 Picacho Peak EVSE provides a logically located Quick Charge facility that promises to finally link the two largest cities in Arizona for electric vehicle travel. All Level 3 formats in use or soon to be introduced in North America - Tesla, CHAdeMO and SAE J1772 Combo - will be accommodated.
Please note that, due to the large number of EVs expected to attend on December 8, Level 3 charging accommodations cannot be guaranteed for all! Please coordinate with your EV-owning friends in Phoenix and Tucson for carpooling options.
See you there!
