If you want a CO2 tax, I think you have to tax the farmers first. Anyone wants to go and speak to the farmers?

 

 

The farmers are the government right now.....which is why so little is being done and the rivers and lakes are degrading rapidly.

I'm in New Plymouth today. 

I drove my 30kWh LEAF down from Auckland yesterday. 

It was more or less a normal car drive down but for the lack of a fast charger between Te Awamutu and New Plymouth. To close that energy gap I stopped at the Seaview Holiday Camp in Awakino and charged up until I got to 75%....and then drove to New Plymouth (84km to the fast charger) at the speed limit. No worries.

On the 124km leg from Te Awamutu I tended to drive about 90kph....as I know there a big hills in there (and lots of good, long regen opportunities) and didn't want to burn the road up without knowing how it would go overall. I also wanted to reduce my charging time at the holiday camp by conserving power without being a road pest.

In the end, it was easy. Just go easy on the 124km leg and charge for 2.5 hours (16amp / blue commando) at the holiday camp....and New Plymouth is no problem.

Seaview Holiday camp is in a beautiful, sheltered  spot. It was no hardship spending a calm, sunny afternoon by the black sand beach with full access to all the facilities for $18. I wasn't in a hurry. 

I'm really enjoying how my LEAF 'allows' me to stop in all these places I would not normally stop.......and I usually end up regretting I was always "in a hurry"....and missed so many opportunities to savour a lot of what is best about life in NZ. 

 

My 36th year in NZ and this is my first visit to New Plymouth. It's a nice city!

I agree about visiting places that before were just driven through.

I had lovely half an hour sitting on the beach at hampden while my leaf charged up.

Never stopped there before with ice.

I'm contemplating a Dunedin to Chch trip in November. Asburton charger should be up by then

With a child in the car we often stop every hour anyway.

Can you get from Timaru to Rakaia? Ashburton has some slow(er) chargers at EA Networks..... This where a 32amp internal AC charger comes in really handy.

EA Networks on plug share say they are going to be installing a rapid charger in central Ashburton, so hopefully it will be up and running by November.

 

Plug share also says EA Networks have two 7 kW 16A chargers..... ?should that be 32A.

 

Glad I got the 6.6kW option in my uk leaf

7kw would normally be 32amp, yeah.

7000W/220V=31.8amp
