So hello again southeast PA EV"ers.KillaWhat wrote:I read the original proposal / bid a couple years ago.gatedad11 wrote:Thanks TPS. I regularly see a Black LEAF on my way to Conshohocken every day almost. The driver drives to LA Fitness, maybe _she_ was the one because she comes from Horsham side...
On another note, Car Charging Group announced that they have an agreement in place to install chargers on the Turnpike, the closest one being at Valley Forge rest stop. I assume that means both E/B and W/B will get them. Although it would be nice to have Level II's, if they don't at least install Level III QC's, then it really won't be that big of a deal after all. I don't even have the QC option, but I can see that having the ability to pull in and get 80% full in 20 minutes is great. Stop in at the rest stop, plug in, use the rest rooms, get a soda and snack and before you know it you are good to go. Oh well, next year when the lease is up, it's QC for sure.
It was for 2 DCQC's and "several" J1772 L2's at EVERY PA turnpike rest area, both East/ West, and the Northeast Extension.
Was to have been well under way by now.
I guess Blink must have won the bid, and then fell apart.
Looking forward to the DCQC's.
Have to say I'm impressed with how quickly Nissan is getting these Dealer DCQC's up and running after the decided to do it.
I'll be hitting that Concordville unit tomorrow.
I have bee obsessing lately about these PennDot Chargers and EVSE we were promised, and that they had a GRANT! for, and where things stand.
I just today heard back from my many many letters, emails, and phone calls, with a phone call from "The Guy" at PennDot.
He said that yes, things are moving very slowly, much slower than the original plan, but.... March!
March they will be putting Level 3's (and LII's) into 4 of the Rest Areas.
I didn't catch all the locations (was driving Leafy at the time) but KOP was one of them.
So, there you are.
Enjoying the L3 at the Nissan dealer on 202 near the Costco.
Make a Costco run every Friday now, with Lunch at Booths corner Farmers Market.
Although, the Nissan L3 on 202 is WAY slower than the Blink by the Delaware memorial Bridge.
I have a meter system, and it looks like it puts out about 50% of what the Blink is capable of.
Anyone else noticing this.
Is it the same at the other Nissan chargers?
