Not all new Electrify America locations are ABB. A new EA location just opened in San Ramon, CA and it is BTCP. In Castro Valley, CA a new station is not yet powered up but is completed. It is BTCP too. Before a recent trip to Rocklin, CA, I studied PlugShare photos for charging locations along my route. I found almost all EA locations between my home in Manteca and Rocklin were EA chargers manufactured by BTCP. I stopped at four BTCP chargers and one Signet charger. They all worked. In fact, the Sacramento area is almost all BTCP chargers. There are a number of new EA locations going in along HWY 99 to the South of me. A few are BTCP but most are ABB. As there are obvious visual differences in the charger cabinets used by ABB and BTCP, I issued a request to Spark EV drivers to post, on PlugShare, photos of the charger cabinets or the manufacturer's label on the side of the cabinet. Some Spark EV drivers have started doing this.
I plan to visit the San Ramon, CA location this week and I am patiently waiting for the Castro Valley, CA location to be powered up for use. Both of these locations will make my weekly trip to Oakland and back much easier - especially during the winter months when I return home at night and also have to use the heater. Last week I tried just the seat heater and it worked much better than I thought it would.
Bottom line: I enjoy driving a Spark EV just as much today, if not more, as I did in May of 2015 when I first started driving a 2015 Spark EV 2LT.
