Update on NY Thruway L3's ??

Sun Oct 25, 2015 4:37 pm

For those that followed the storyline...

Spring 2015 - plenty of ink claiming new Level 3 chargers on the Thruway between Albany and Newburgh, possibly installed by Memorial Day.

Summer 2015 - the story changed to "by end of summer", and placeholders on Plugshare proudly showed "coming soon".

Fall 2015 - now there's no word from anybody on status, and the Plugshare placeholder points are gone.

Has anybody heard anything official or reliable on the status of these Thruway charge points??

Found an article, but their definition of a Fall install might be different than ours...

Indeed. They seems ready to take full advantage of the fact that technically "Fall" lasts until Dec 21, and even then the promise is only to "start installation" this Fall. Here's hoping it is online by the end of Winter (on March 21).

Better late than never. Looks like there are 4 new QCs on the Thruway between Newburgh and Albany. 2 on the northbound side, 2 southbound. Can't say for sure that all 4 are online, but there is at least one review on Plugshare where someone was able to charge at one of the locations. Guessing that means they are all working, but I'll let someone else scout it out first. Little too far for me to get there and find out they are offline :)

Not very useful for me, being North of Albany, but if I ever fancy a trip to Newburgh, and if my next Leaf has QC...do the new stations have L-2 as well, or are they being as difficult as possible?

New stations are QC only. 1 CHAdeMO and 1 SAE at each station.

We must be close neighbors. I'm in Valley Falls.

I live right across the Hudson from Mechanicville. If you drive a Leaf, and use rte 67, I've probably seen you driving over the bridge. You can see my car, parked in front of my garage, from the South lane on that bridge when headed East.

Very cool, I'll have to look next time we go by. Used to go to Clifton Park via Mville almost every weekend, but with the construction we started going Stillwater way and have stuck with that mostly.

We are on 67, east side of Valley Falls. Look for the solar panels on your left as you drive east.

The street bridge construction in McVille is almost done, and the detour is now gone, FYI.
