One site is open, #1 for the month and #399 total: Tracy, CA (I-205 ex. 6).

This site is mainly useful for people driving between the S.F. Bay Area and points east (Yosemite etc.), although it's too close to the Bay Area to be much use outbound. It will also serve as a somewhat off-route backup for Patterson and later Stockton, for people driving I-5 N-S.

The Murphy Canyon Walmart in San Diego finally has the EA Chademo connector hooked up. It's going to be awkward for a Leaf to use since the charging station is positioned half way down the the parking space on the passenger side and the cables are short. It's a CCS/Chademo combo station. I'm not sure who they expect to use it.

They don't expect anyone to use it and CARB doesn't care. Official policy is that CHAdeMO is not being built today. Yes, I know, don't shoot me, that's what they told me.

As we've recently hit 400 open sites (now 401) and most of the remaining "Coming Soon" sites are urban, from now on I'm inclined to only list those sites that expand coverage or provide a useful boost to density on national or regional routes. I'll still list totals at the end of each month, but continuing to list every site in major metro areas that're only a couple of miles from another strikes me as unnecessary. People who want to use such sites regularly can find them for themselves.

WetEV, EA's "Coming Soon" site totals bounce around a bit - when they were at 400 they showed 77 "Coming Soon" , but at 401 they now show 74, so they must have removed a couple including the one on Bryant St.

A "Coming Soon" site has been added in Sterling, VA, so the totals now read 401 and 75. I've added it to the list, and show Bryant St. S.F. as removed.

Same awkward set up at Walmart in Paducah KY. I just line up so the cable fits best. Due to my physical limitations from arthritis it is a painful but doable connection. Getting the connection made feels like I am bending a large steel rod. It works fine however. Not sure I am going to DC charge the new 40 or not. I used it a few times on the dying 30 kWh battery just so I could get back home.
