Electric Car-Charging Panel Tonight in Santa Monica:

Condo and apartment dwellers aren’t always sure how to best charge their electric cars. To help inform those who own and who are unsure of how best to charge their electric car, Santa Monica Nissan will present a free public panel about Electric Vehicle (EV) charging for multifamily housing residents on Monday, Jan. 31, 6:30 p.m to 9 p.m., at Santa Monica Public Library, Main Branch.

“I get questions about this almost daily,” said Paul Scott, a national EV expert who sells the LEAF at Santa Monica Nissan, in a statement. “Our panel will provide immediate solutions to some of the challenges surrounding charging options for multifamily housing residents and offer suggestions for progress going forward.”

Panelists will include representatives from Southern California Edison, The City of Santa Monica Building and Safety Division, and Clean Fuel Connection, Inc., an EV charging-infrastructure company. Independent EV-charger installer William Korthof, who, like Scott, has driven an EV for years, will also participate. Scott, a co-founder of Plug In America, the nation’s leading EV advocacy organization, will moderate.

Only last month, Nissan began to deliver the first mass-marketed EV, its all-electric LEAF. Homeowners who purchased or leased the cars are having chargers installed in their garages. But policies and practices for installing these high voltage chargers in multi-family dwellings are just now evolving nationwide.

Admission to the panel is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. For more information, call (310) 403-1303. The panel will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium, Santa Monica Public Library, Main Branch, 601 Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica, 90401. For library information, call 310.458.8600.
