Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments issues RFP for public =

networked EV charging stations By Green Car Congress on 01/14/2011

The Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments [ambag.org] in =

California has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for Public [EV]
Charging Infrastructure and installation for local jurisdictions
within the Monterey Bay Area. Transportation in the Monterey Bay Area =

is dominated by use of the personal automobile, AMBAG said, noting =

that a large mode shift to biking or transit, is not expected to =

occur even as gas prices increase.

Therefore, in order to both improve the region=92s air quality and =

reduce the cost of personal mobility, EVs will be an important part of
the transportation needs in the Monterey Bay Area. =97RFP

AMBAG obtained grant funding in 2010 for an EV infrastructure study =

and pilot project for the Monterey Bay Area from the Monterey Bay =

Unified Air Pollution Control District (MBUAPCD). AMBAG staff =

completed an analysis to identify the best areas to place public =

charging stations and from this, the best locations for infrastructure
for each city in the region were identified and scored.

The second phase of the project is to install public charging stations
in some of these priority areas. Installation will take place in at =

least three cities within the region, with the highest-ranked areas =

taking priority for initial EV charging station deployment. The number
of charging stations the bidding company will submit will be at a =

minimum of three stations=97one per each city; the maximum number of =

stations is to be determined by the per unit cost as submitted by
the bidding company. =


Ideally, these demonstration areas, already carefully selected to =

coincide with where people already engage in 1-4 hour activities, will =

be excellent showcases for the latest Electrical Vehicle Supply =

Equipment (EVSE) [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charging_station ].
The EVSE charging infrastructure will be considered a new =

infrastructure system, attached to both the existing electrical
infrastructure and existing transportation infrastructure. As such, =

AMBAG said, the system of public charging stations should function =

together in a networked capacity. The proposed networked system should
allow both AMBAG and the unit owner to retrieve charging data, set =

appropriate prices, and the customer charging to pay via multiple =

methods. Closing date for receipt of proposals is 14 February 2010.[]

[EVangel mode]

EV charging for the Highway 101 Salinas<->SLO corridor

The Monterey County, CA Gov. person posted to the evdl.org that they
want public input on three new public EV charging stations they will
be spending DoE money on. Looking at
http://www.evchargermaps.com/?Address=King City&Want=J1772 AVC&Zoom=8

There is a huge 130 mile conductive Level2 EV charging gap between
Salinas and San Luis Obispo. When going South, the last 15 miles is a
steep climb to SLO. I saw only Tesla EV drivers' comments on
evchargernews.com that have spanned that Level2 EV charging void.

I sent an email to the Monterey County contact, giving my $.02 of
where Monterey County should put in the three new public EV charging
stations:

-San Ardo Level2 J1772 - a must-have EV charging location for 100
mile Production EVs. This is the most Southernmost city in the
county that has something to do what the EV is charging.

-The Greenfield shopping center site - as it would be nice to have
EV charging here. There are places to explore nearby (Pinnacles,
wineries, etc.). And it makes it more accessible to EVs with less
range to enjoy the Highway 101 Salinas-SLO corridor.

-Add another downtown Monterey location that is not restrictive to
only 4 hours, near the wharf and shoreline/beach parks, and has
24Hr access. If the multi-level Downtown East Garage is selected,
please put the EV charging spot on an upper level that gas car
drivers won't want to park in.

SOP
EV charging spots should use blue color paint for pavement markings
and install "Tow-away EV-parking only" signage at windshield height
(there is a California code for towing away any non-EV in an EV spot).
Each spot should have one Level2 (6kW) J1772 and one Level1 (a regular
120VAC 20amp) outlet. The Level2 charging should be prioritized
primarily for EV use, and secondarily for plug-in vehicles that can
run on fuel.

EV charging is good for nearby businesses: EV drivers will make
purchases while waiting for charge (movies, dining, food, drink, etc.).

AMBAG accepting bids to install EV stations by summer 2011

http://www.pinnaclenews.com/news/contentview.asp?c=276427
Getting charged in Hollister By Adam Breen Feb 04 2011
City expected to get electric charging station by summer

An electrical vehicle charging station could be installed in San
Benito County - most likely in Hollister - by August as part of a
regional program to encourage use of the environmentally-friendly
vehicles.

The Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments [AMBAG], comprised of
Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties, is using a $25,000 grant
from the Monterey Bay Regional Air Pollution Control District to
install at least one public charging station in each county by the end
of the summer.

Bids are being sought from contractors to install the stations ..."
according to Linda Meckel, project manager for AMBAG ... "Public
charging ... is ... for when you forgot to plug in your car at night
or you don't have access to a charging station at home. Or ... if you
drove over 100 miles and you need to recharge the battery." ...

The number of electric vehicles in use in the region "is really
difficult to get from the DMV," Meckel said, though she said there are
a lot of those vehicle owners visiting the region. ...

"We're trying to make sure we have the infrastructure in place so that
when those cars do come to market, people are not hesitant to buy
them," she said, referring to what has been termed "range anxiety,"
or the fear that people have about being stranded without a place to
recharge their electric car's battery.

While AMBAG has not yet had discussions with Hollister officials about
the electric vehicle charging stations, Meckel said individual cities
would be responsible for maintaining the sites.

"We have to enter into agreements with the cities," she said. "It's
infrastructure, but it could be a break-even or money-making
endeavor," with cities receiving some of the revenue from the charging
stations.[]
