4/9/02: Mschwabe visit
9/29/99, Jerry Hudgins: I stopped at the mall office and spoke with the general manager. She was enthusiastic about the EV1 and said that, like Petaluma Village, they would be giving a free book of mall discount coupons to any EV driver that stopped by.

Driving directions:
From Highway 29, take the First Street exit and head west on First Street. Just past the 29 interchange, take a hard left onto Freeway Drive and head south. The outlet mall is on the right, immediately past the softball field. Proceed past the traffic light at the Factory Stores Drive intersection, then turn right into the mall lot at the entrance near the Liz Claiborne Outlet sign. Proceed to the south corner at the back of the mall, where there's a squat tower with a "Napa Premium Outlets" sign.

How to find the charging station location once you have found the site:
The charging station is on the left-hand face of the tower. It consists of one wall-mounted Gen 2 charger [replaced by TAL 6/04. --Ed] and one Avcon conductive charger, positioned between a pair of lined and signed parking spaces.
-- Jerry Hudgins 9/29/99
These chargers are located on the back side of the outlet mall stores. This is the truck loading area, after you pass the mall itself. You would have to walk around the corner to the right to get to the stores. [Actually there is a door just to the left which leads into the foodcourt and the stores.-- Nick Carter.]
The chargers are easily visible, one Avcon, one Gen 2, slated for replacement with a Gen 2+. There would be no reason to find these ICEd as they are out of the mall parking area.
-- Rob Stelling, 5/03.
You can also get to the charging station by turning right onto Kilburn Drive, then take the first right into the rear parking lot, then right in the parking lot. The chargers are at the corner of the lot, on your left.

Things to do:
Factory Stores do not open until 10 am.
Closing Mon-Thu 8 pm, Fri-Sat 9 pm, Sun 6 pm.
There is a free tram which runs almost every day of the week from the Outlets to the downtown in a big loop which also includes the Copia food and wine center and the Wine Train station, so it's easy to hop on and visit Napa. I think it runs every half hour or so.
-- Nick Carter 5/3/04.
There's a glass door to the left of the charging station that leads into the food court. There are many shops of various types, a small food court, and plenty of seating. For more information and a current store listing, see: Web site.
-- Jerry Hudgins 9/29/99
There is nothing else here but the outlet stores. Nothing nearby but housing and a school, etc.

The box to the left of the chargers normally has forms in it and they have the master because I filled one in when I was there on my recent Vacaville trip. Hopefully it'll be refilled soon - I encourage everyone to fill one in - to show that EVs do still exist and their facility is being used, plus you receive a discount coupon booklet in return. -- Nick Carter 5/03.
