I've received an update from the MA DOER on the upcoming deployment of DCQC across the state.
Follow the link in this email to the first RFQ for applications for up to $50k reimbursement for QC installs. There's a lot of red tape and hoops to jump, but if you know of a firm or municipality that might be interested, please forward the link. The plan is for dual SAE Combo/CHAdeMO stations to be publically available for 15 years, lots more details in the link. A $50k award should help the business model get started.
The other 12 Linda mentions are Nissan donations I believe, not sure if they'll have combo, but every Pike rest stop should be covered. The map at the end of the pdf shows the preferred sites.
Here's the email:
Still doing site planning and load calculations for 12 FC to be located at highway rest areas and a request for proposals is out for 8 more:http://www.mass.gov/eea/docs/doer/procu ... 15-013.pdf
2015 is the year!
