BP Chargemaster have for a while been touting a huge expansion to to their HPC network

To date they have HPCs at 9 sites, I've seen some installations underway at a couple of sites and have read about many more going in - a wild guesstimate puts it at another 20 sites being underway.

It feels like they are building out a quite considerable network to then switch on one day for some huge PR, or is it just that they've started many installations and they are all waiting for their power connections which can take some time, and they'll start dripping through at some point?

Either way, it's nice they are finally installing multiple units in sensible locations (including MSAs!) , and not single units in hotel car parks.

I suspect that they will switch them on individually as soon as each site is up and running, to start cash generation.

Their marketing guys won't pay any attention to reality on the ground in any case馃榿

It is great they are installing more, but personally I am not keen on stopping to charge at petrol stations, so IMO a shame that seems to be the focus now. (In normal world) I prefer somewhere with proper indoor/outdoor seating, facilities, no diesel smell and decent coffee. I guess useful as a backup, but certainly not my first choice. Probably fine for the stay-in-car-with-flask drivers ;)

There are currently 21 Polar HPC's according to zapmap

One of the units installed in BP Perivale has an ID of #64, if they are installed sequentially (which I assume they are, the first one was #1) then we've got at least 43 more coming online in the near future.

Together with the growing Ionity network in the UK it feels like we're finally starting to get a viable charging network along major routes馃槉 ( along with of course other networks making notable progress, always have love for Instavolt)

That's Didcot, not Abingdon. No wonder I couldn't find it. Also just north of Harwell and a bit further east of Wantage. Bit arbitrary calling it Abingdon if that's what they're doing. :)

Edit: Ah, I see you have edited your post...

Just a word of warning on the Emsworth one: it's on the westbound A27 dual carriage way and the access is via the previous junction at Chichester. Not a bad location for southcoast through traffic but putting Emsworth in the satnav won't help! There is a Geniepoint in the centre of the village.
