well august October is the big EV months in the hunter so we should arrange a meetup to discuss the idea I guess.

if we decide soon to attempt creating a branch or not the upcoming activities are a good place to recruit members.

Australia's first Electric Highway!

Do they even make a line version of the socket ? The cable is a sizeable 35mmsq conductors and only carrying 100A or so. have to just use the ones they make for the Tesla adapters. but it would be cheaper to put some of these in probably http://www.imagebollards.com.au/unipark-automatic-parking-bol...

Nissan's 544km long range Nissan Leaf
