When EA passed 500 locations in November, I read that EA planned to reach 800 locations by the end of 2021:

EA's "Cycle 2" document confirms budget for 300 new locations in 2021, but nothing about where. Has anyone seen a map of these planned 300 sites? It seems like construction work would have begun on many of them by now.

On the EA App they have a filter (show coming soon) for showing all future locations.

When I check out their website that list 150 "coming" soon locations.

Cycle 2 is mostly in the large metro areas as far as I understand and the highways around those areas. I am not sure if there is an expansion is the interstate charging network in 2021 besides what was already planned and not finished. I would prefer if the interstate network would be finished first.

Is anyone in the Midwest, Central Appalachia area? I live in Columbus, OH, and there is a huge void of EA stations in the SE Ohio, NW West Virginia area. You definitely see the gap in the EA location map when most of the East coast is covered with blue, or at least something coming soon. I know it's not all about me, but any SE travel is made really tricky by this. This also affects Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati which are fairly populous areas. It's very common for people in the area to travel to the Atlantic coast for vacations; Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, Florida, etc. I also have family in Charlotte, NC. Any of these destinations become difficult due to that void. Has anyone else noticed mapping trips or future plans?

I actually went to the EA website and there is a "Contact Us" section that has locations as a topic. I suggested they look at Charleston, WV which is right in the middle of the void, would be reachable for most EVs with decent range from EA locations in the above cities I mentioned, and then to a string of EA locations along I-81 further South or East. Charleston is the intersection of I-79 and I-77, so high traffic and I assume a desirable location for them.

Anyway, I know selfishly it would benefit me, but I'm sure there are others out there in these areas. I invite you to also submit Charleston (or something else in that void) and maybe "stuffing the ballot box" will generate some attention.
