Square One Mall in Saugus is up.

Still no charges on my credit card.

Jonathan Lee also mentioned that the NCTC program was about to start in Boston, now confirmed by Transport Evolved, so that probably plays into all these new QCs, NRG will collect some fees from NIssan.

Still nothing on my credit card.

NRG definetly timed their deployment to coincide with the introduction of NCTC here. If you sort PlugShare for NCTC only, you get all the new NRG stations and the L2s at Patriot Place, and that's it!

Now have both a Boston card and a VT card:

Tested the VT card at the Auburn Mall QC and it worked fine, so I guess any one card would work in New England.

The Solomon Pond QC times out at 30 min, but Auburn does not, better for winter charging.

Latest QC is up at Manchester, VT, free for a short promo period. Brattleboro is in planning stage for Grove street parking lot. Assume Bennington to follow.

I guess I will have to sign up for NRG eVgo, then. I saw the North Shore Mall unit was on that system on PS, so I skipped using it. There is a Nissan dealer not too far away.

Some new QC stations of note lately, 2 in RI, York ME, and one just north of the White Mountains. Central NH is still a QC desert though.

Also a new one in Portland Maine.

It is more conveniently located than a pre-existing charger in South Portland, but South Portland is free.

I've never used EVGO but I don't understand why Plugshare says they cost $9.95 for 30 minutes of quick charge, but on their website if you buy the flex plan you would apparently get charged $10.95 for the same 30 minutes. Why buy a plan if it would cost you an extra $1 per charge...?

Good question. I've never used one without an nrg card, will it work without one, with just a credit card? Not that I'd care, it's only a buck.

New one in Providence RI just yesterday.

A second site added in New Bedford. Easy route to the Cape now if I go through Providence.

My issue with the eVgo system is the $14.95 monthly charge. This is very high, if you only use a quick charger a couple of times a year.
