jlv wrote:$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)
3.50 a gallon? its down to 2.70 around here.. (well chestnut hill its more like $3)
$10 its a ripoff should be $5 or free with a mall purchase. but I guess if you're in a pinch it will do.

New PlugShare posts report that Ron Bouchards Nissan near Rt 2 & 190 Leominster has gone from having the QC open 24/7 to locking it and only allowing customers to use it during business hours. Sent them a plea to reconsider, as they're the only one for miles around there. But shocked. Would happily rather pay a fee than lose access. Even though I'm a customer, it won't do me any good after hours. *#%¥!!@!? dealerships!

There are now 2 CHAdeMO stations showing up on PlugShare in Rhode Island. One is at the Schneider Electric office in West Kingston, but it's listed as Restricted Access on PlugShare. The other is at Premier Nissan in Newport. If they ever fix the station at Grossman Nissan in Old Saybrook, CT, I could get my Leaf all the way to Cape Cod with the stations that exist now.

If they finish the ones in Madison on 95, that might get you to Newport. Grossman's doesn't look reliable.

New QC at Nissan Village in North Attleboro MA, but listed as LEAFs only and only during business hours.

I was at Bruce Bennett Nissan in Wilton CT for my one year check and he showed me his new L3 charger from Nissan that will be going in. They already have 2 L2s available to all, so this will be a great addition.

A bunch of new QC sites popping up on PlugShare, all labeled "coming soon", all NRG eVgo, some in VT, some in MA, and CT. Can't find any info on their website about them, but did send a contact form. Plans look pretty pricey, for example, the Freedom Plan for QC use on the road is $15/month plus $0.10/min, so looks like it would only be worth it if your situation warranted it. More concerning are the negative reviews I'm finding online. Doesn't look promising.

I can confirm the DCQC in Rutland, Middlebury, and Burlington work well, except the one at the Burlington Nissan dealer which has a broke handle.
With some care, I think its possible for someone from Mass to attend the huge EV parade and test drive event in Montreal.

Anyone who drives a plug-in (other than a Tesla) more than 500 km to attend can hit me up for a Model S test ride (unless they luck out and get to ride of the P85Ds that will be present).

I'm trying to find the English version.

Just called and they told me the L3 is installed and working - it's located in the front of the sales building where the L2s are located.

The branchezvous festivities are under way at the Gilles-Villeneuve race track in Montreal. 17 models are EV are available for test drives and of course there will be the World Record attempt of LEAFs and EVs in parade Saturday afternoon.

With the CHAdeMO stations in White River Junction, Middlebury, and Burlington, LEAF owners in New England should consider attending. Even Tesla Motors mentioned the event today on fb.

Link a few posts up.
