Plug in Hybrid but No driveway. Advice on charging sought
We just bought a plug in hybrid Minivan. We'd like to use it in Electric mode as much as we can because of the environmental benefits, and while I know there are public charging stations none are close by or are practical for frequent charging.
We live in North Oakland and don't have a driveway. We do have a curb cut, and the city has said we can post No parking there and use it ourselves. I knew one couple who lived in more residential area and would simply run an extension cord out to their Volt, and then eventually put in a conduit for the cord. We live where there is a reasonable amount of foot traffic, and don't want to cause a problem for passing pedestrians and strollers etc. So I'm trying to figure out if we could do something like that.
Has anyone else dealt with this? Any ideas?
