By the way, you can find all the latest documents for the CEC project here. Looks like a new addendum was just published but I didn't see any changes in my area since #4.

Dan, Guy,

Just got notification that EA Coso Junction is live! Someone else got notification too and on PlugShare said they were going up to Mammoth and plan to use it.

I'd love to get up to Horseshoe Meadow but that's too far to Coso to chance it without confirmation that it works. That's a godforsaken place to get stuck if its dead.

At any rate seems like very good news. ;)

Paul

That's so strange it literally was still just the same pit with the fence around it five days ago when i went by for my backpack. I can check it out this weekend.

But my EA app shows them as available.

District 9 responded to me and said:
Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, this project is still in suspension. We are waiting for some partner agencies to finish their work before we’ll be able to proceed.

We did a road trip in our outback yesterday to see fall color in the eastern sierra. Checked out several chargers along the way - checked both rest stops for the Cal-trans sites, the rest stop at Coso Junction and the rest stop at division creek past Independence.

Both appear almost the same as last time. I did notice some new boxes installed but neither has the actual charger, which is an important part! Last email I received from Cal-trans said a different company was doing that at a later date, so that wait continues.

I meant to check for the Cal-trans station in Bishop, but with the traffic I couldn't look over to see it, at the Caltrans headquarters there where it is suppose to be.


I also eyed Brady's in passing at the junction of 14 and 395, looking for that Charge-point station. No work there yet. I have convinced myself that they will put out a CEC update Addendum sometime announcing another location change, maybe this time it can actually be IN Inyokern where amenities are! I know they had backup sites in case the primary sites failed - actually the primary was Robber's Roost, but they had multiple backups. Just put it near the Tesla chargers and the burger place!

^^^ Could someone summarize the CEC sites' status for me, no CC being available in the video? Thanks.

Quick update on this thread: No updates to report.

LOL

Ok, seriously I have not seen any changes myself at Coso and looking at plushare nothing else. It looks like most if not all of the D9 Caltrans sites are waiting on Chargers to be installed.
