That's the beauty of using standards instead of a proprietary charging system - you can let others do the work and your customers reap the benefits. You (the car manufacturer) don't have to spend the money - you get to use every CCS "standard" charger out there.

Thank goodness Volkswagen got caught. Can you imagine how long it would have been before the first Coast to Coast trip in a non-Tesla would happen.

In NY the Governor restated the announcement of early last year, that all Thruway travel plazas would get DC fast chargers
https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/govern ... g-stations

The only disappointing aspect of his recent announcement is that the implementation dates slipped again.

A video with the release, link at bottom of release page, reveals a slide with the next 9 locations for the stations, 2:13 in the video, capture attached.

Additionally, NY, along with 11 other states, bonded together to try to standardize and speed implementation of EV charging in general, with some detail as to recommendations for DC fast charging. http://www.nescaum.org/documents/northe ... y-2018.pdf

I had completely missed that, thanks for pointing it out! The service plazas are actually intelligently chosen. This is a surprise for NYS. Still, I can't wait for the day that every service plaza has 4-6 150kW+ chargers. But for now at least I soon won't have to get off in Albany and hang out in a Hannaford's parking lot just to get home.

It seems highly ambitious, but within the realm of possibilities. All dots will have at least 4 stations, each supporting both CCS and CHAdeMO with at least 150kW of power.

This is excellent news! I am looking forward to being able to use these. I hope that we can get real-time status while we are on the road, for these charging stations.

NYS Thruway DC Level 3 Fast charger update. (7/1/18) The RFP went out in May and the contractor(s) to install the units will be selected July 31st. Once the contract(s) are awarded, the first phase is a "design phase" so installation will not start immediately, but groundbreaking is anticipated before years end

If they stay on that schedule you're getting much faster results than here in California. Typically it's 3 years from program announcement. I think they have two years from contract award.

Well it looks like this winter I may be back to burning gas. Still, I'm glad that it's moving forward.

I really hope they don't install them like they have the first 4 chargers. Those are awkwardly out of the way, hard to find and not easily expanded on. NYS needs to get their heads in the game and start installing chargers like Tesla does superchargers - a row of spots which are easily found and accessed.

To highlight the absurdity of available ccs chargers today. On a recent trip I stopped to charge at the Santa Clarita mall on Newhall road, there are 2 50 kw chargers tucked away on the far eastern side of the parking lot. In the middle of the parking lot close to the shops and restaurants there are 24 Tesla fast chargers.

For those interested in the Upstate NY DC fast charging infrastructure here is where we are at:

Couple of locations now open at welcome centers
Grand Island https://www.plugshare.com/location/161247
Southern Tier Welcome Center https://www.plugshare.com/location/131411

EA has opened one in Fredonia with another close behind in Buffalo
https://www.plugshare.com/location/163264
https://www.plugshare.com/location/166722

RG&E is working on one in Rochester
https://www.plugshare.com/location/170068

No sign of action yet from the state, several old PR announcements with commitments to install one at every thruway rest area
January 8, 2017 https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/gov...rging-stations
May 8th 2018 https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/gov...rging-stations

And just this week, Nov 19th, a more comprehensive NYPA press release detailing build out over the next 2 years.
https://www.nypa.gov/innovation/programs/evolveny

Let's hope that some of the dots on the newly published EVolve NY Map start to get populated soon...

There is also the Adirondack welcome center on the Northway. I used it this weekend to visit family for Thanksgiving.

https://www.plugshare.com/location/165964

I don't know about NYPA's plans. I mean, I want to believe them, but they don't have good track record. Plus, their map lists every thruway rest stop as a given ("existing or planned") yet nothing has happened on the thruway in well over a year. If that maps does come to fruition by 2020, though, I will be very happy. Combined with EA's plans, I will be very well covered in my normal travels.
