The Cranberry crew said they would be doing an Indianapolis Supercharger next, but not immediately...they were headed to Vermont to do solar field work first. They also said that the Indy location would be in a parking garage. Now, does this sound like Lafayette still, or will it be downtown Indianapolis instead?

Indiana not started yet, lease details still being worked out. Will be at a mall north of Indianapolis, in a parking garage. Whether this means the Fashion Mall or up in Lafayette, I have no idea.
Thanks for the info!
I would think Lafayette is big enough and far enough away to make it different than "north of Indianapolis"...

I would think so, too. And like Patrick42h said above, Indy makes more sense because of the interstate highway coverage (I-70, I-74, I-65, I-69). Lafayette gives only I-65 coverage, and it is a long haul from I-70 and the other interstates (for a charge stop, anyway).

Hopefully they get the lease terms approved, and move forward soon!

They're going to need something near Indy on I-70 because the current distance between the 2015 projected sites of Effingham, IL and Dayton, OH is ~250 miles. The wife and I make trips to Indy occasionally and we'll make use of destination charging there, but for those just passing through, I'm sure there won't be a desire to go all the way to Lafayette to come back around on I-70 to the east.
