Please join us for a Saturday morning meeting with the Silicon Valley EAA chapter at the HP campus in Palo Alto on October 19. The EAASV has agreed to host us, and will provide refreshments and support. The Nissan hackathon we hoped to hold this month together with the Nissan Research Center in Sunnyvale has been rescheduled for January. We thank the EAASV for their support and their willingness to work with us on a short notice.

The guest speaker will be Jeremy Whaling, a long-time BayLEAFs member and supporter. Jeremy is a real-time scheduler at the California ISO, monitoring electricity imports into California’s electrical grid. He will give a presentation about the evolution of the power grid, and how the renewables share is rising rapidly. One of his predictions is that thanks to the growth of solar, we might see noon off-peak rates in the not-too-distant future.

Jeremy has been driving a LEAF since July 2012, and is active in the modification scene. He recently installed a second on-board charger from Brusa to reduce the charging time in half. Instead of seven hours, it only takes about three hours from turtle to a full charge. This project has garnered a lot of attention and is documented online. As Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield recently reported, the upgrade project has prompted the manufacturer of the charger to continue supplying it, and revise its pricing.

At 12:30 we will adjourn to the parking lot for further discussions. If you would like to have one of the upgrade maintenance items done on your LEAF, please send an email to info@sfbayleafs.org in advance of the meeting. There are a few T-shirts remaining from the 2013 EV Rally and these will be available at the meeting for free to existing members or anyone who joins at the meeting, while the supply lasts.
