Several new CHAdeMOs just added to PlugShare, all IPPs at malls, most not active yet, but all to be on Greenlots network.

Getting much easier to get through CT to NY.

The first of IPP Solar's stations is now active in Stamford, CT. I haven't gotten up there to try it yet, but I will soon. I was actually in Stamford last weekend, so I just missed it. The stations is on GreenLots, cost is $0.20/kWh with a $0.20 minimum.

New CHAdeMO listed on PlugShare at Stratford, CT. Doesn't say that it's under construction, so may be live already. Needs verification.

New CHAdeMO at Chesnut Hill Mall. $10/half hour, on NRG EvGo network, must join to use. Kind of pricey, but would use in a pinch if needed.

$10/half hour? It figures since the Chesnut Hill Mall is normally considered pricey.

I think that makes recharging the Leaf more expensive than gasoline, even at the prices from a year ago.
(my thinking: half hour gives 60 miles of range; for 60mi I'd need about 2-2.5 gallons; thus $7-$8.50 at $3.50/gallon)

Yah! Not likely to get much usage at that rate. Haven't seen if they have a monthly offer yet, which might be good if you couldn't charge at home, or traveled a lot.

I think that pricing is inaccurate. PlugShare shows that price for every eVgo station, but if you check their website, they list different pricing. When I drove down to DC this summer, the price for the station in Towson, MD was supposed to be a $4.95 session fee plus $0.20/minute. However, because the card they sent me didn't work, I had to call to start my sessions, and they let me charge for free! (I did have to pay a $4.95 fee to get my card mailed to me, so it wasn't totally free.)

I think what's more interesting about this station is that it's the first eVgo station in New England, and the first in the entire Northeast outside of the DC area. Boston wasn't even officially announced as an eVgo market, was it? It's not on their website as a state they operate in. I hope NY is next!

Even at that cost I am glad to see the station put in place. Market forces will determine what prices are acceptable - I just hope enough folks are willing to pay to keep companies placing the L3 chargers.

IF enough of these are placed and they prove to be reliable it would effectively extend the range of my Leaf which I currently consider to be about a 40 mile "distance from home" in the summer and about 25-30 in winter (so far). Occasionally paying for L3 to extend that still works out better for me even if that use costs more than gas. Of course if a lot of folks treat it that way usage will remain fairly minimal.

Then again, I'll bet there are a lot of folks who may pay for the use and never calculate the actual cost/mile thinking "well it is still cheaper than filling up my SUV" or just going with "electric is cheaper" idea never calculating the cost.

Anyway - I'm still hoping for an L3 to be put somewhere on the pike between 95 and 495. This particular location would likely get used once a week in winter allowing me to avoid driving the van (20mpg) on that trip. So from a pure cost comparison - the fuel cost of that 80mile trip is 4 gallons for gas (now $2.70?) totaling $10.80 vs electric 3.9m/kw, 21kW at $.17/kWh = $3.57, so if a stop at the L3 en-route cost less than $7.23 it would be better - of course the time spent there (likely only need about 10 minutes?) would have a value too...

All this to say, bring on the L3 stations! I'd welcome the extended range.
