Less than 3 months left in the year. Will they meet their Cycle 1 (through June 30, 2019) commitment by then? Will they start installing Cycle 2 locations, as promised? It's not looking good. Although they have made significant progress.
The delay in opening California sites as the utilities have switched their crews to tree and brush removal to avoid yet another massively damaging fire season has really slowed things down, but that's not on EA. The pause for about two weeks while EA set about repairing sites (and presumably figuring out what was causing most of the problems) also set things back. A few months ago I thought they'd hit 380-400 open by the end of the year, but that seems unlikely now, and depending on how the weather goes 340-360 seems more likely, although if you look at the "Coming Soon" sites on the map, the vast majority of them are in California now. So, maybe all the sites here which are essentially complete except for transformers and final inspections can be completed fairly quickly, once the utility crews are off tree-trimming and associated routine maintenance duty.
