All 484 locations planned as part of its first 30-month investment cycle have now been identified and secured.
Beyond the 105 sites open now, another 127 are under active construction with 42 of those completed but waiting to be energized by utilities. A further 73 sites have approved permits and are schedule for construction. The remaining 179 of the total 484 sites are still in the design and engineering stage.
I wish EA provided some more real-time status. I would love to know the actual status of specific stations, rather than just an aggregate number.
They have a location map at their website that shows individual site construction status, sort of.
Locations under design but without permits generally are not shown yet on their map which confuses people into thinking those areas won’t be getting stations this year.
Locations with permits generally seem to be listed as “coming soon”. They may or may not actually be under construction.
The map also clearly shows which locations are now open.
Unfortunately, it does not yet show whether specific charging spaces are in use or available. There will be a new smartphone app in the next couple of months that presumably will show dynamic status updates.
