    New Mexico Law Prohibits Tesla Stores and Service Centers

    Nice! Would be great if they can eventually add superchargers there. Now showing on Tesla's web map too:

    DCFC in SE NM

    The datasheet for this unit (NB60) indicates it's capable of outputting 150 amps DC. So this may be showcasing the difference between "rated" and actual output (if I recall, the placard on most V3 supercharger pedestals indicates a rating of 350a, while the actual output must exceed 600a at...

    DCFC in SE NM

    Installing a 75a DCFC in 2021? Really?? And is it really CCS-only? If so, that's not going to help many EV owners, unless/until Tesla releases a CCS adapter...

    New Mexico Law Prohibits Tesla Stores and Service Centers

    That's a fair read, but wouldn't Tesla want to have a service center somewhere in NM rather than relying exclusively on mobile service in the state? Maybe service will be added later? Or maybe they're hoping to use this site as leverage to get the law changed to eventually be able to open a...

    Building DC Fast Chargers in Wyoming

    Nice! In my view, Shoshone and Cody would be strategically sited to help fill the biggest gaps. Cody should have lots of potential options for hosts; not so much in Shoshone... p.s. Has EA announced specific sites along I-80 and I-25, or just the number of sites?

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    It's definitely happening - I mean, Tesla's PR dept hasn't talked about anything else for almost a year! ;) Actual evidence seems to be: 1) Tesla's announcement of an adapter for South Korea, where they use the same CCS1 standard (originally announced for release in 1st half of 2021, now 2nd...

    DCFC in SE NM

    Meanwhile, up in NE NM, Kit Carson Electric is apparently installing 2 new DCFC sites (down from 5 originally proposed). This article doesn't separate DCFC sites vs L2 charger sites, but one might guess that Questa and Peñasco might be the DCFC sites, because they're the only two sites listing...

    Supercharger - Edwards, CO

    Nice! But funny how these are described as "close to operational" when they look like they were just plopped down from the truck and aren't yet connected to any outside power source... o_O

    Supercharger - Alamosa, CO

    Yep, the DCFC (CCS/CHAdeMO) in Alamosa is under construction. Chargers themselves are installed, but based on the recent pic on plugshare, it looks like it's still waiting for some supporting electrical hardware: PlugShare - Find Electric Vehicle Charging Locations Near You Edit: I doubt...

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    Makes sense, but can you elaborate regarding what you know and how you know it? Is this based on info announced for Korea? How difficult would a hardware upgrade be for older cars?

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    Thanks for the report - this would make perfect sense, given that Tesla has already announced such an adapter for the Korean market (originally announced as available in Korea in 1st half of 2021, now 2nd half of 2021, lol)...

    DCFC in SE NM

    Well, Tesla's existing European CCS2 adapter reportedly goes up to ~350A (142 kW)...

    DCFC in SE NM

    In addition to the Francis Energy sites, there are several other NM dcfc sites planned (funded at least in part by VW settlement money). Not sure of the timeline, though - this list is over a year old, and few (or perhaps none?) of the stations have yet been built...

    Supercharger — Montrose, CO

    Gneiss pics! (Geology joke, sorry I couldn't resist.) I hope to get there someday soon!

    DCFC in SE NM

    Let's hope they get started in NM soon! Indeed. I think we can expect that a Tesla CCS1 adapter will be available before they open superchargers to other cars in North America (it would look pretty bad for Tesla otherwise) - but hard to say if that's 3 months or 3 years away!
