Re: Madera Electrify America DCFC Station Underway

JeffN, Thanks for posting!

I just returned from my nearby Electrify America station where I have made numerous attempts to charge with no luck.

I really didn't need to charge but was anxious to see if this would fix my issue. Indeed it did. Worked like a charm. The build date on my Bolt EV is August, 2017. My vehicle has only been DC Fast charged one other time since I've owned it. I am the second owner, acquiring the car with some 11,000 or so miles on the odometer and have no knowledge of the previous owner's charging habits.

Thanks also to Eric Way and his "News Columb" Videos.

Checked on construction today, two workman were there. There didn't seem to be much progress, even though some of the equipment crates were moved around. A workman said the expected completion date would be late January, early February. Left photos on Plugshare: https://www.plugshare.com/location/169517. Not much to see.

Recently checked the Madera & Selma Wal-Mart Electrify America installations. The chargers are installed in the Madera location. It looks ready to go, probably awaiting permits. No noticeable construction on chargers occurring at the Selma Wal-Mart location, although there was lots of construction of what appears to be buildings. Not the usual type of construction associated with EA charging stations like a temporary construction fence covered by green netting, lots of crates stored inside.

The Chevron Coalinga is now a go!

North/South on Interstate 5 between The Grapevine and Northern California is now possible for the Bolt EV

more relevant informative post about the recent expansion of DCFC availability on Interstate 5 (the parallel to Hiway 99 and faster North/South route in California):

No construction occurring on EA Selma WalMart site, any observed construction is for a carwash. No observable change in EA Madera WalMart site, work occurring in areas not observable amid loud construction noise. No contact could be made with workmen and this poster could not remain in the area to make contact.

Greg,

The EA site in Bakersfield at Panera Bread is a long ways from completion though the 4 kiosks are in. The transformer isn't in and the trenching is all open.

Others say the delays are a permitting issue, after all this California, things take longer. Nothing on Plugshare about the Madera EA site being open, unless I happen to get by there, can't see wasting any time checking on the site even though I'd like to let the EV community know when it's available. Will probably just wait for a Plugshare report.
