I'm back. As WetEV noted, two sites have opened, making 22 for the month and 324 total: Elmhurst, NY (Urb., I-495); Issaquah, WA (I-90 Ex. 15/17). BTW, is it pronounced ISSaquah or IsSAQuah?
ISSaquah--sort of like Ithaca but without a lisp (and a kwa at the end).

As WetEV noted, San Ramon, CA (Urb., I-680 ex. 36) is open, #23 for the month and #325 total. While I appreciate the value of the urban sites, I really want EA to close the remaining gaps on the national interstate and (in California) rural Hwy corridors, and they've been static for a few weeks now.

The dual charging cables are not designed to charge two vehicles at the same time, but rather to easily reach your car’s charging port—no matter where it’s located. If either connector is in use, look for a different open charger.
This hadn't penetrated my thick skull till now. They go to all the trouble of putting on a second expensive cable for an extra 3 feet of access? It seems madness.

Maybe the cables fail often, and having a spare on site is worth the expense.

I'm nearly certain that other brands of dual-cable charrgers can charge two vehicles at once, very likely power sharing.
Yeah, having looked at several EA sites, I really don't see the point of the extra cables bar redundancy, as they're so close together it's really not going to provide any more access. Most of the sites I've seen only serve a single parking row with each pedestal only serving a single space, so it's not as if you can connect your car while you wait for the charger to be free, and it will automatically start when the previous user leaves.

As WetEV noted two sites are open, making 25 for the month and 327 total: Selma, CA (Jct. S.R. 99/43 ex. 118); Northborough, MA (S.R. 9 E. of Jct. U.S. 20).

Selma's been "Coming Soon" for a long time, but doesn't add all that much other than capacity to travel along S.R. 99, as the sites in Bakersfield and at Arbor Faire in Fresno are 117 miles apart - Selma shortens the distance to Bakersfield to 95 miles. While I'm not familiar with driving patterns in the area, Northborough doesn't seem to add much other than capacity to that area either, as Auburn is nearby on the interstate, but maybe it's to avoid the tolls on that route.
