^^^ Glad you caught that, because I missed it in my daily skimming of the list as my brain started to glaze over. Newburgh is #11 for the month, #296 total. This one's definitely in a needed location.
Well, I "caught" it because I signed up to be alerted when it goes online. Newburgh is high on my list of desirable EA stations. In fact, it rounds out the list for those I care most about (for personal use) out of all of the Cycle I locations. Now to get on that Cycle 2 corridor of Syracuse-to-Philly...

<span>Newburgh, NY is open (woot!). This is at a critical intersection of I-87 and I-84. It will serve travelers in both N/S and E/W directions. It is a little redundant with Greenlots <a href="http://www.amazon.com/s/?field-keywords ... ecarfor-20

Around here they would be a LOT cheaper than Greenlots as well.
Greenlots' chargers on I-87 are a flat session fee of $8. As far as I know, there is no enforcement of a session limit, so how cheap/expensive they are depends entirely on how long you linger. IMO, this is a terrible pricing model. I have to pay, but once I do, I am encouraged to hog the charger for as long as possible, even if that means well into the taper while others wait in line behind me. I hope they change the pricing once they finish upgrading all of the service plazas to 4x 150kW charging stations (if NY ever follows through on their EvolveNY plans).
