EV charging station signs

This weekend, I made it out to a small Alt Car Fair.

I brought out the motorcycle to show it off, and since I had the Aero-Hub Caps on the truck, I displayed that as well.

An NEV dealer that I know was going to be there, and I had talked with him before about some "Reserved for Electric" signs that he made up.

He gave me one!

Since my local municipality now has NEV ordinance, and the city is going to buy one or two for the utility, I now have a sample of what some reserved Charging/Parking signs for EVs could look like!

I also had a couple of computer hard drive magnets kicking around (VERY powerful...) which had exactly the right size mounting hole to mount on the back on the sign with a small bolt.

That's right! I now have a PORTABLE reserved parking sign I could slap up anywhere!!!!!

I'm thinking I may actually want to drive around town, and put up the sign in several locations, taking photos of it. Then, I could put it into a presentation to show the city what it might look like to have PUBLIC EV CHARGING in our town!
