Any updates on Lebanon, NH?
Nope.

I was in the Chelsea, MA service center this morning and asked (on the off chance they'd have some inside information). They didn't have anything concrete to share, but it certainly sounded like the expectation was late spring/early summer time.

Someone mentioned on facebook that their company was asked for a bid to install the Tysons, VA chargers. I guess 2nd deck of the Nordstroms Parking Garage at Tysons Corner Center (Tysons I)

I'm still wondering why they would install them there vs... anywhere with less coverage. There's EA chargers on the first floor of the parking garage (not sure if it's the nordstrom's garage, but whatever) and this area is thick with chargers. Like, Thiccccccccc

The only thing I can imagine is that it could be tied to a Rivian space/test drive hub much in the same way that Lucid has a setup with test drive cars near the American Girl Doll Store ( <-- Girl Dad); however, I think Lucid's setup is all L2.

I'm more interested in expanded coverage in the Outer Banks... They could crush it with some RAN chargers in the shopping center just south of the Off-road beach access, especially with the new bridge going into that area.

I don’t want to detract from the subject too much, but on the subject of NEVI, this just came up for those that live in Texas. Just need some Rivian chargers here in Texas.

Yea, I have done some time in the American Girl store there. My daughter is 15 going on 16 now so those days are over for me... for better and worse...

They must be putting them there for a test drive charging solution like you said. I don't get to the mall there much, but I was at Tysons II a couple of weeks ago and noted all the fast chargers at the end of the mall there and they were for Lucid and Tesla.

The outer banks is a huge empty space as you said. We used to go there yearly with our group of friends in college and more recently our friends and their kids, but the last 5 years or so we have skipped because the traffic getting there and the crazy rental rates even split dozens of ways just didn't make it worth it (I can take the family on a Bermuda cruise for about the same money). The last time we were there though my friend with his Tesla was able to use the Kill Devil Kills Tesla SC that had just opened. Now with the SC network opening for us it will solve a HUGE missing piece for charging if we every go back there, although lots of rentals now have level 2 chargers or dryer outlets to use.

Calmly waiting for Rivian to start putting chargers in MN and WI...not sure what the overwhelming appeal for MI was all about but would be cool to see some love here too.

Especially in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, where even Tesla doesn't have much of a footprint.

To be fair, no one does and for good reason. There's not a whole lot of demand there nor is there a real reason to even go to most of northern MN. The parts that are worthwhile to go to (north shore area) there are charging options all over.
