Per WetEV one site has opened, making 13 for the month and 342 total: Bothell, WA (Urb., Jct. S.R.'s 524/527, off I-405 ex. 26).

They had another site briefly listed in Herndon, VT, but I sent them and email pointing out that the zip and the address were both in Herndon, VA. After sending it I immediately checked their map again and the site had disappeared, which would be very fast work indeed if my email was the cause; maybe they'd already noticed it. It was a very strange listing, as it showed 1 CCS and nothing else.

I'm hopping they get to at least 348 by the end of the month, as that would represent a significant achievement for them.

Per WetEV two sites are open, making 15 for the month and 344 total: Diamond Bar, CA (Urb., S.R. 57/60 ex. 24B); Pompton Plains, NJ Urb?, (S.R. 23, SE of I-287 ex. 52A).


The EA listing for Pompton Plains appears to be screwed up, as it shows 1CCS/2 CCS-CHAdeMO/1 L-2. Meanwhile Plugshare lists it as 2 CCS/2 CHAdeMO and no L2. Hopefully a customer will visit soon and clarify what's really there.

Hopefully at least 4 more sites will open in the 4 or maybe 5 working days remaining in the month.

Why is 348 so much better than 347?

I'll tell you when they get there, and you can decide for yourself if it is or not :D


Meanwhile, Bridgeport, CA (Jct. U.S. 395/Twin Lakes Rd.) is open, #16 for the month and #345 total. This is a standard low-traffic Hwy site with 3 CCS/1 CCS-CHAdeMO, but is the first of the U.S. 395 sites to open. Unfortunately Hwy 108 and 120 just underwent a precautionary closure Tuesday afternoon for the first time this season owing to the possibility of snow, and if it did and any of it stuck, chances are they're both closed until spring as another storm is forecast next week, so it will be only serving N/S traffic until then.

I visited this site (see up-topic) on Oct. 23rd and it appeared complete then, so I guess they were just waiting on final inspections/permits. Hopefully Bishop and Coso Junction will soon follow, and non-Tesla BEV owners will be able to drive up to Mammoth for T-giving, if they're going.

Guy, this is great news--not that this station in particular is open but that EA might be going to finish the Bishop, Coso, and Mojave stations that have been idle for months.

After my last chat with the CEC I gave up on even monitoring stations on the East Side. To the vendors they were not a priority and CP won't have their stations operational until mid 2020, taking the full amount of time in their contract.

Travel on Hwy 99 is simple now. Not so east and west of Bako or north and south on 101 and 395--and not yet complete on I-5. And people wonder why folks move to Tesla. ;)

Per WetEV, Van Nuys, CA (Urb?, I-405 ex. 66 & 68) is open, #17 for the month and #346 total. It's also the 50th EA site to open in California.

It's listed as 2 CCS/1 CHAdeMO and no L2 on the EA site, but 4 CCS/1CHAdeMO/1 L2 on Plugshare, so we'll need a real person to check in again to get the real number - the single photo on Plugshare isn't any help.

My thoughts exactly, and I was planning on copying that notice over to the Yosemite topic to make sure you saw it, before I saw your post here :lol: . I figure Coso Jct. (172 miles from LA or 161 from the Burbank QC via S.R. 14, 129 from Bakersfield) and Bishop are the essentials, with Mojave nice to have. People going from LA via I-10/15 to 395 can use Ontario (153 miles to Coso Jct.) instead.

On Monday I'd found a Bolt with QC to rent this past Wednesday through tomorrow, so I was planning to use it to drive over to Lee Vining and back (going to do some more peak-bagging). Then 108 and 120 were both closed Tuesday afternoon, so that put an end to that. Ah well, next spring.
