Woman 1: We felt that having an electric vehicle charger on campus would be a huge benefit to employees who own electric cars.
Woman 2: It's been really great because the only downside of driving this car for me is that you can't go very far on a charge and so I wouldn't be able to drive to work and get home using this car if we didn't have a charging station here. This way I can pull in, plug it in, go to work, forget about it and I can even run errands on my lunch hour and still when I'm done at the end of the day it's ready to go and I can get home.
Man 1: It's kind of an efficient use of my time because effectively with an electric car the recharge time is ten seconds and the reason for that is because I come in and I plug it in in ten seconds and go to work and when I'm done at the end of the day I have a full car every time as opposed to if I had to go to the gas station. I'd spend 15 minutes getting there and coming back and dealing with all the issues of buying gas. So for me, it's a big time saver over time just to be able to charge here at work.
Woman 3: I was really excited after I heard that the Juice Bar was installed at lynda.com. I actually went home and started researching electric vehicles and looking on Greg's list to see if there were any for sale used and looking into electric motorcycles so I think it's a really neat thing to have here.
Woman 1: We chose this charger because it has the 220 and the 110 volt outlets so we are able to charge our company owned fleet of small electric vehicles as well as the bigger employee cars.
Man 2: It is a much faster and easier process now to be able to charge all four vehicles at once instead of in the past. And now with the charging stations we are much happier and it's a much more efficient process.
