Some of the EA stations are currently experiencing issues with the liquid cooled cables and have therefore reduced the charge rate such that the cables do not overheat. Although the max power is reduced to 50 kW it is dependant on the voltage of the battery it is charging and the max current delivered.I am puzzled by your charging numbers though. If you were at less than 50% battery capacity then shouldn't your charge rate have been at least 50 kW? I am still new to the Bolt and really haven't needed to use DCFC much yet.
Great to learn, I was not aware there was already a precedence for this in other states. I have not yet seen a EA site co-located with a Tesla site in the northeastEA has been doing this ("partnering" w/ Tesla) in CA (the SF Bay area) for some time. At least one is already open, and several are under construction.
Yes, the charger displayed a disclaimer before starting that the power was limited due to a technical problem.Some of the EA stations are currently experiencing issues with the liquid cooled cables and have therefore reduced the charge rate such that the cables do not overheat.

Another issue with liquid cooled fast charging stations was reported, but this time it ended with simply lowering power output (instead of a total shut down).insideevs.com
I came here wondering what the chances of EVolveNY hitting their end of 2020 deadline were actually going to be.The Evolve NY website still talks about stations coming on-line before the end of 2019.
"Interstate and Urban Fast Chargers: DC (direct current) fast chargers have the potential to charge electric cars in as little as 10 minutes for 200 miles of range. NYPA aims to help eliminate EV range-anxiety by installing up to 200 DCFC 150kW chargers at a target of 30 mile intervals along key interstate corridors and in select urban hubs by the end of 2019 "
See the section titled "Initial phase" Has anyone seen any activity installing units recently that I might have missed? I am assuming that date will be revised next time I check to say 202X.
The fact that a FOIL request was needed to get this information is deeply concerning...Same sites as were indicated on the map included with the FOIL request.
I do recall seeing what looked like a map dot of a "planned" location roughly around Roscoe - perhaps co-sited with the Tesla Superchargers at Roscoe Diner?Both the I-81 and the I-86/NY-17 corridors were mentioned, but details were much more sparse. They are both in the long-term plan (through 2025).
They do have two signed agreements along I-86/NY-17 between I-84 and I-81, but they declined to provide any further details. That just means they have identified host sites for future stations. They still have to work with the utilities and the local governments before beginning any construction. Probably nothing for another year there.
No sites have been identified along I-81. They intend to cover every ~50 miles from the PA border to the Ontario border, but that's low in their priorities. They are aware of the awkward situation with the Southern Tier Welcome Center - that travelers have to jump through hoops to get in and out of there.
