Hello,

this months meeting is 7:30pm Wednesday, 16/12/2015 at the Albion Peace Centre, 102 McDonald Rd, Windsor. Free for members arriving in an Electric Vehicle; otherwise $2 for members, $3 for non-members to cover catering costs.

Graeme is bringing an AC kit (enables the conversion of Internal Combustion Engine vehicle) for you to look at .

See you there

Les

Can I get an hour or two in a 240V 10A outlet during the meeting?

I can get an 80% charge at Tritium or BMW on the way to the meeting. But coming back I would need at least 100km in the tank to get to Beaudesert plus 20km.

Ta.

I don't think it will be a issue to provide a spare 10A outlet. Bring a extension cord though. There is typically only two people charging and always a spare outlet.

We wont leave you stranded

Oh no.

After more careful thought I can't even get to the meeting. Well, not quite true. I have to drive to the Gold Coast Thursday 17th and I live off grid. I need a full tank to get there and 3 days of good sun for that.

So, cancel my first meeting with AEVA Bris.

Also, same reasoning, I will have to cancel my meeting at Tritium Monday or Tuesday as I can't guarantee a recharge after that trip.

Damn! But I still love my LEAF:-).

The odd time that situation happens to me. I just suck the guts out of my 20kwh house bank overnight. If I need to go some place early the next day It usually recovers while I'm with the car in the day time.

Though If your running lead acid and a small PV array it might not be so happy with that.

Perhaps you could just drive part way and meet up with a member on the south side of City and get a lift. Something like that.

8kWh of old gel storage and 3kW solar. I can only pull a kWh or 2 from the batteries to 50%. But I have to stop midday coz if cloud comes over the house runs out overnight.

I always have the option to run the 6kva genset but, heh, one has to have a few overriding principles:-).

I am (well) retired with a strong "conflict avoidance" guiding light now built in.

I'll take the stress free option and see you guys in March.
