    I noticed they are adding new locations to their under construction, and opening stations every week, 9 stations open currently, and 55 stations under construction, including 12 here in the Northwest, and I have found permit data for 8 more submitted in Washington and Oregon that are not included in that 55 currently under construction. Things are shaping up just in time for my I-Pace coming this winter.

    I noticed that a few were added since your post, but I can't find any press release of the opening for each one. Is there any tracker of new ElectrifyAmerica charging station openings?

    This part of the Electrify America site (https://www.electrifyamerica.com/locations) not only has the operating sites listed, but also what's coming soon. Check out the right side of the page. Right now it shows 12 locations, with 52 more coming soon (with their addresses).

    This page shows just the status, but does not show opening dates for either current or future stations, that's why I asked the question. I drop by this page from time to time to check the advances, but I have no way to keep track of it so far.

    Great to see the progress of these new stations. Many people should consider EV's in the near future.

    I haven't seem any progress for the last couple weeks. Their map still says that they have only 12 open and 52 coming soon. I'm eager to see their progress, but it is frustrating like that.

    I prefer to use PlugShare. You can filter on the supplier which includes Electrify America. It is the user comments that tell if the station is really up and working. I have a similar problem with the ChargePoint map.

    There is a ChargePoint, L2 charger downtown but in a key-card access parking garage. The ChargePoint map it doesn't mention limited access. PlugShare doesn't list it.

    Have you used one? If so, which one(s)?

    If we see user comments in PlugShare showing successful charging, I would have more confidence.

    I agree with you. They just change the color of the stations on the map and adjust the table, but no press release or any other media about the openings. It is really frustrating.

    The key to that is really a quick extension of premium charging stations all across the country, but also to make them super easy to use. There are plenty of exciting new EV's coming to the market, e.g. Byton, Fisker, Nio etc., but Tesla has a big advantage over them, having a functional charging infrastructure in place

    I'm hoping they help out the southeast US along I-95. CCS is very hard to find on the interstates between VA and FL. It's nice to see my city (Raleigh) is one of the 17 EA is targeting.

    The list of new charging locations looks a little focused on Walmart locations. :(

    Use PlugShare.com to see which ones are actually in service and the user experience.

    I found a NEMA 14-50 about 20 miles from Evansville using PlugShare.com. Does that help?

    What type and range of EV do you have and what city?

    I checked today and their website says they have 19 open. Working or not, I don't know.

    Use PlugShare to see if anyone got a charge.
