OK discussion about the HPWCs in Wilkes have gotten their own thread: [Wilkes-Barre, PA] 2 80A HPWC @ Breaker Brewing
The waiting is the hardest part!!! - YouTube
Was there a few hours ago. Two bucket trucks idling with a few guys hooking up final connections. There appeared to be enough people on site to finish it today.
Omg omg omg! (Jumps up and down).
do they need a S to test? Or do they just check power at the IN?
Kevin, Thanks for the update!
Wonder if this one will be up by next week... that'd be awesome.
Better be up before Friday. All the power companies within 500 miles will be working overtime to fix the nor'easter mess this weekend.
I have a potential trip coming up that this might make a little easier if it's online.... would let me skip south Jersey all together. Otherwise I'll need to cut over to Newark and head up 95/NJTP... since I don't think I could make Edison or Paramus direct from Hagerstown, especially not in the cold.
Yup. How many superchargers in the NE will lose power due to the storm? And I imagine the priority by the power companies to get them back online will be pretty low.
I've contemplated long power outages at home as well... I could most likely go 2-3, maybe 4 days without power at home (for my car). My generator will run a few toys, but it won't be powering my car! unless... (gets an evil grin...)... it would be an awful hack, but I'm sure I could wire it if I had to. but I'm sure it wouldn't be ... efficient.
Seriously? The stories you hear about people not having power for a few days are in residential neighborhoods.
Superchargers are on commercial property so they ought to be one of the first things back up after a power loss.
They probably wouldn't be usable because they wouldn't be plowed out. But then again, not many people would be out on the roads in their electric cars either, so toss-up for maybe a few days.
In CT - ever since Superstorm Sandy, all highway rest stops are required to have a backup generator so that the fuel pumps are operational. Darien, Milford and Greenwich Superchargers are in area rest stops. I have no idea of the Superchargers are part of the generator connection but it would not surprise me. Those generators are absolutely massive. Absent another storm with the magnitude of Sandy, I think those locations will be back online very quickly if power is lost.
But what we really want to know is.... are you gonna go my way?!
I mean... is Allentown open yet?
Hooray! Traveling to Allentown in 1 week, timing couldn't be better
And supercharge.info has been notified.
Oh yeah. Thanks for telling supercharge.info.
I had planned to have a meetup this Sunday but in view of the impending snowfall we should probably change it to
Noon Sunday Jan 31 at Red Robin Allentown.
I could probably make that.
