EasyGo public chargers

    You'd have to think that EasyGo would not have made the investment in the equipment and works without some "promise" from the ESB that they would be connected relatively soon after installation?

    Yeah, would seem stupid to do that. From photos posted on Plugshare, it would seem all the electrical boxes are in place, but obviously not connected.

    Seems nonsensical. These chargers are in really useful places. Lots of tourists around, never mind locals.

    2 new units going in on Meagher's Quay, Waterford. Saw the works over a few days but had no idea this is what was happening until they appeared today.

    I put your photo on the plugshare entry here

    In terms of in place but not yet live it's up to ESB networks and in many cases it can 6+ months to get a connected or upgraded grid. ESB networks were advertising on the radio for apprentices due to backlog with whole new housing estates finished but not yet connected. I have seen motorway services and businesses open running from generators due to connection delays. There was also news items about bribes being asked to jump queues. In some cases it can require whole new substations or custom equipment to be ordered and due to attacks on electricity system in Ukraine there was a shortage of equipment and spares. Other countries were donating parts but then placing orders on long lead times.

    Anyone from Longford on here? EasyGo show a 50kW dual CCS charger live in the Bog Lane Car Park in Longford which is not listed on PlugShare.

    Is this a different location to the Longford library which isn't live yet?

    Chargefinder has it. Not the same location. The EasyGo ones are the blue pin, the Longford Library ones are top right.

    New DC chargers just off Bray Main St. (I didn't get a good look as I was passing, I assume it's a CCS + Chademo 50kW station - it's not on the easyGo app yet but there was a Tesla Model Y plugged in.

    It's a terribly narrow street to get parking on, I expect it will be ICE'd non-stop given it's location (so close to take aways for example). I'll update the plugshare next time i pass.
