Re: Electrify America Network

Take this with a grain of salt, but a poster in Plugshare said the eternally delayed station at Essex (Fenner) CA should be operational around April 7th.

Re: Electrify America Network

They haven't updated the station totals yet this month, but at the end of last month they had 750 open, and it's unlikely that they've been able to open another 50 in the interim, as they only had 81 Coming Soon. About the middle of last year they were claiming they'd have 800 open by the end of the year, even though it was obvious by that point that they'd have to average far more openings every month than was likely (or historically achieved by them).


One new Coming Soon site of interest for road trippers that's popped up on their map is in Billings, MT. As the closest open site to the west on I-90 is in Butte, 234 miles away, they'll need at least one more in between. I'd like to see two, in say Belgrade and Big Timber to allow people to reach Gardiner and West Yellowstone easily while coming form either east or west on I-90, but a single site in Livingston would at least allow people to get to Gardiner with minimal hassle.

Connecting eastbound from Billings to the open station in Gillette will also require at least one more station, although again two would be preferred given the intersections.

Re: Electrify America Network

It looks like Fenner, CA finally opened. A very important station for anyone using I40.

That station had been waiting to go online for a long, long, long, long time.

Odd, I didn't get a text message like I usually do for sites I'm watching. Here's the address:

Najah Hi Sahara Oasis (Essex Fenner, CA)
31251 Goffs Rd, Essex Fenner, CA 92332

OTOH,

Target T2386 (Atwater, CA)
1000 Commerce Ave, AtWater, CA 95301

north of Merced on S.R. 99 also opened.

Current month's updated totals are 758 Open/76 Coming soon, an increase of just 8 open from last month.
