$8 for a full etron charge is a deal. Might get as cheap as $0.10/kWh.
Buy an e-tron for ~ $80k
Or buy a Tesla X for $140k. Get even a cheaper electric rate, along with the ridiculous gull wing doors.

Would need to stay longer, as I think most Greenlot chargers are 50kW. Two hours, ignoring the Tesla X's taper.
My Tesla -- $40k
As for Greenlots -- be my guest with an Etron
I'll spend 10 minutes at a Supercharger and pay 10 - 15 cents a kWh

So? Both wife and I can't sit in it. Wheelchair would be a pain as well. Could cost $4 and take electric power at 1 cent per MWh and I couldn't use one.

Anyone who has the app, please post any openings if you don't see me do so. It's getting easier and easier for me to miss them as the numbers increase and the site makes it harder and more tedious to detect them by eye.
TBH; I don't know why you put in the effort.

Because I want to make sure it's being tracked. Once we get the national network initially complete I won't bother anymore, except when it's a site of particular interest to me, as I did with Tesla's SCs. For now, I-5/8/10/15/70/80/95 remain incomplete, and any transportation mode without its supporting infrastructure is crippled, as Tesla realized before they started to build SCs.

If I had known this thread was about you I would not have bothered posting.

Both the posts before the disagreement were perfectly valid. If we can keep it to one dissenting post from each of us who disagree with each other, the thread can keep moving.

Two sites are open, making 13 for the month and 298 total: La Crescenta, CA (Urb. I-210 ex. 17); Auburn, MA (I-290 ex. 9, NE of JCT. I-90/290 on S.R. 12).

Auburn connects Waterford, CT (108 miles) with Boston via I-91/I-84/I-90, rather than taking I-95 the whole way. it also allows Boston to be bypassed by I-290/495 when traveling to New Hampshire/Maine and CT.

I stopped at the Mojave EA charger on Sunday afternoon - took a few minutes to find it, it is tucked in behind a hotel. It looks like it is close to complete. I took some photos and plan to post them on the Plug share site when I have time, and then I can share them here.

Anyway it all looks done (to me), they have at least some parts of the transformers installed as well, or maybe its a battery enclosure. They have a walled off area and I jumped up and got a photo over the wall. Inside there are multiple units installed but a few spots with pipes sticking up out of the ground with nothing installed, so I'm not sure if those are to-do or for future expansion.

In addition to the two sites, both urban, that WetEV mentions above, two more sites are also open, making 17 for the month and 302 total: Woodbury, MA (Jct. I-94 ex. 251/CTY. Rt. 19); Clarion, PA (Jct. I-80 ex. 62/S.R. 68).

Woodbury was the only site planned for MN, which along with the recently opened site in Rhode Island makes 40 states with EA QCs, with only two more states to be added, NH (Seabrook) and ME (Scarborough). Those states not scheduled for sites are AK, HI, WY, ND, SD, AL, WV, VT .

Re Mojave, Dan, there'as a whole bunch of CA sites that are complete except for transformers. That will usually be located outside the enclosure you describe, on a concrete pad surrounded by vertical steel pole bollards to protect it, and the pad will often have some several inch diameter round holes on the top of it lined with plastic flexible conduit for the wiring once the transformer's installed. The pad may also have a bare ground wire coiled up on it as well.
