    Supercharger - Tejon Ranch, CA (expanded to 24 V2 stalls)

    The SC web page still lists this as 8 stalls so that's presumably the original total, and 16 more would make 24.

    Supercharger - Estes Park CO

    Hopefully Tesla will have this one open for the Memorial Day weekend.

    Supercharger needed in Kanab, UT?

    As an active outdoorsy type, the bolded section describes me. On interstates, I can pretty much count on there being a gas station every 30 miles or so, eliminating any need for planning. Even on the often remote roads I drive, I can expect any decent-sized town to have at least one gas...

    Supercharger needed in Kanab, UT?

    If they are to replace ICEs they'll ultimately have to have that, because that describes the ubiquity of gas stations, e.g. on Google maps searching for say "gas stations near Kanab, UT" brings up the following: Google Maps Similar results can be found for just about any wide spot in the road.

    Supercharger needed in Kanab, UT?

    My thanks to gjunky for the map (btw, Torrey and Panguitch or Carmel Junction were missed). One in Chinle to open up Canyon de Chelly would be nice too, as would Durango (E. Gateway to Mesa Verde, and connector to Montrose etc.). I got a million of 'em;)

    Supercharger needed in Kanab, UT?

    My wish list would include the following: Springdale, UT (Zion W. Gateway); Bryce Canyon City (Bryce gateway); Jacob Lake (Grand Canyon N. Rim gateway); Ash Fork, Seligman, or Williams, AZ (connector between Kingman and turnoff to G.C.N.P S. Rim from west for I-40); Tusayan, AZ (Grand Canyon S...

    Supercharger - Willcox, AZ

    Now they need to infill an SC at Lordsburg, so small battery cars can make it with no worries. Plus Ft. Stockton, Pecos and San Antonio to complete I-10 throughout.

    Supercharger - Laramie, WY

    Per the site web page, it's now (finally) officially open: Laramie, WY Supercharger | Tesla Still not showing on the SC map, but it is on Tesla's SC list.

    Supercharger - Laramie, WY

    Just thought I'd note that Laramie has never been officially open at any time, despite its first reported use over a month ago. Tesla has gotten pretty good at quickly showing the SCs are open on the nav and SC maps unless there's a problem, so I tend to consider an 'open' listing at...

    Superchargers in Northern California (location speculation)

    Alternatively, for a gateway SC they could put it in El Portal, but yeah, to approach the same flexibility and convenience of gas stations SCs will ultimately need to be spaced no more than about 1/2 hour apart, at all major intersections (Mariposa qualifies) and in the middle of long legs with...

    Supercharger - Evanston WY

    I've got one in the car, one in the big backpack, and one that I carry in my day or fanny pack while riding at night for repairs (flats etc.). The bike's headlight is detachable from the handlebars so I could hold it in my mouth, but I just prefer the headlamp. I've managed to accumulate four...

    Supercharger - Evanston WY

    Having spent far too many years holding a flashlight in my mouth to keep my hands free for work, I recommend a headlamp instead of a flashlight, LED preferred. Any REI will have a selection.

    Supercharger - El Paso, Tx

    It's supposed to be put in at Deming (and Willcox, AZ), per Tesla's SC list.

    Wyoming Supercharger build out 2016

    Both are now listed as "Target opening by end of 2018" on Tesla's SC list, so I doubt if anything has happened with them. The I-15 SCs in Montana have similarly been moved back, along with I-94 in ND and the trans-Canada Highway ones.

    Supercharger - Erwin, NY

    Erwin is finally officially open: Erwin Supercharger | Tesla It doesn't appear on Tesla's SC map yet, but it is on their SC list. One notable omission from the site web page as of now is the number of SC stalls, presumably reflecting that only soem of them are open.

    Supercharger - McAllen, Texas

    It's now shown as live for the first time ever on the site web page, Tesla's SC map and the SC list page: McAllen Supercharger | Tesla Erwin, NY, remains in coming soon' status.

    Supercharger - Rock Springs, WY

    It has happened before, with Bay City, MI among others. It's now, for the very first time, officially open on Tesla's sites. It's this sort of bouncing back and forth that I'm trying to convince Blueshift to avoid, by either continuing to show a site as still under construction when an owner...

    Supercharger - Falls Creek, PA

    It's shown as live on the site's web page, Tesla's SC map and their SC list plus the car's nav, so they seem pretty sure. I consider that more definitive than reports of early use here which get added to supercharger.info, even though the sites may just be in test mode and may go down again...

    Supercharger - Rock Springs, WY

    The same comments apply to Erwin, NY, and McAllen, TX. On the list I keep on another EV forum, while I'll mention a reported use, I won't call a site open until it's shown on Tesla's map or the in-car nav, the SC's web page shows it live, or it's listed as such on their SC list, avoiding all...

    Supercharger - Stateline, NV (South Lake Tahoe)

    Certainly would have been preferable to have it located close to the 'Y', but considering how long people have been waiting for any SC at the south end of the lake, it's a big step forward.

    Supercharger - Evanston WY

    +1. I spend way too much time on remote rural roads to be willing to drive without a spare, jack, lug wrench, pump and 2" x 12" board as a jack base (for soft surfaces), and it tees my off that so many cars nowadays, even CUVs/SUVs which are more likely to be driven on remote/dirt roads in the...

    Supercharger - Evanston WY

    There's often a lag between when one or the other page(s) get updated, so I try and check all three (including the map), and/or wait for someone to say it's showing on the car nav. I don't consider use reported here/on Supercharge.info as definite, as sometimes a site may be briefly up for...

    Supercharger - Lima, MT

    AFAIR the issue was lack of excess electrical capacity in St. Regis, but if that was the case, they should have looked at one of the towns (Henderson/De Borgia etc.) further west to put the SC in. Still, it could be worse. There's a 56 mile detour to Flagstaff and back for people eastbound on...

    Traveling 395 East of the Sierras: Planning Charging and Energy Usage

    Many of us tried to get Tesla to put the SC in Lee Vining a few years back, but they put it in Mammoth instead. That's great for the people going to or staying in Mammoth, but not much help for those of us who are just down from Tuolumne for the day to visit the lake and/or Whoa Nellie Deli, or...

    Supercharger - Santa Fe, NM

    'Bollard' does sort of suggest tying up a land barge - I think 'stanchion' is more accurate than 'bollard'.

    Supercharger - El Paso, Tx

    Given that location, I wonder if the next one west will skip Las Cruces (at least for now) and be in Deming, 90 miles away. After that, 60 miles to Lordsburg, and 109 more to Benson. And I'm surprised no one has found anything in Pecos yet, as that's the obvious place between Midland and Van Horn.

    Supercharger - Milford, CT - Boston Post Road

    As a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, I would like to take the opportunity to point out that the usage of definite articles when referring to freeway numbers is a practice which is largely restricted to Californians who are residents of the great smog belt south of the Tehachapis, and such...

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    Hah! I'm thinking President's Day weekend is possible, but Memorial Day weekend this year is more likely. I think it unlikely it would take until the 4th of July, let alone Labor Day. Once 120 over Tioga opens for the season a holiday weekend's almost guaranteed. Anyone else care to guess?

    Supercharger - Aberdeen, WA

    I set them an email yesterday after noticing the mis-listing myself, and they sent a reply saying it's fixed today (and so it is). The base map still isn't updated, but the active one shows it.

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    Mostly boilerplate from Tesla: ". . .The construction at our site in Fish Camp and Groveland are near complete and are going through final inspections. We are actively working to have the sites fully operational as soon as possible with the holidays approaching, although we cannot make any...

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    I sent an email to Tesla's SC site today asking if either Groveland or Fish Camp would be open in time for the holidays. I'll post the reply if it's anything other than the the usual boilerplate. Yes, Badger isn't very exciting for a downhill skier. OTOH, it's a great place to practice cross...

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    The Valley can be quite beautiful in winter, or depressing, depending on the weather and what activities you're engaged in. I spent two Xmases there cross-country skiing in the Valley up at Crane Flat or on Glacier Pt. Road (free shuttle to Badger Pass then, I think they're charging for it...

    Supercharger - Ozona, TX

    I like Deming too, and you could eliminate Las Cruces (for now) if you have Deming, El Paso and say Caballo/Truth or Consequences on I-25. the legs really should be no more than about 110 miles and preferably 100 along I-10 in N.M. and TX, as the speed limit's 75 or 80, and that makes it tough...
  38. G

    Supercharger - Ozona, TX

    As Ft. Stockton is 108 miles away from Ozona, has numerous roads passing through, and is the only town west of Ozona at anything like the right spacing, it does seem almost certain that the next SC will be there.

    Supercharger - Fish Camp, CA (8 V2 stalls)

    Now someone needs to check Mariposa - El Portal on 140,and see if there's one along there, as of the three western entrance routes (120/140/41), that one is the lowest and least likely to get snow. And one's still needed in Lee Vining, as Mammoth Lakes is too far for 60s from Groveland, this or...

    Supercharger - Page, AZ

    Stopping at the Cliff Dwellers Lodge in Marble Canyon to use their 80A HPWC should alleviate any concerns. Otherwise, you'd want to stay at the RV park in Jacob Lake (TT-30 adapter recommended). Alternatively, there's the RV park in Kanab, which has 14-50s. All are on Plugshare. Most...

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    On the positive side, assuming you're heading for Yosemite Valley (120 east of Crane Flat will close with the first snow, usually early November), there are three charging stations you can use in the Valley. Two are at the Ahwahnee aka Majestic Yosemite Hotel, an HPWC and a 16 amp Clipper Creek...

    The one off Ponderosa, which is the one shown on the map in the permit application I noted back in post #47 - see http://tuolumneco.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view_id=&event_id=182&meta_id=29779 Went by again about 3:30 Saturday afternoon, and there was a 3-man crew there working.

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    Good news! Drove through last night about 10:00 on the way to the east side (writing this in the June Lake Library), and saw the parking spaces on the south side where the stalls are going to be coned and taped off. There's another section of the lot, on the west end of the north side that's...

    Supercharger - Bakersfield, CA (I-5 / Stockdale Hwy, 10 V2 stalls)

    There are specific advantages to this particular pairing. People coming south on I-5 and either continuing south or turning east on 58 to Bakersfield will first stop at Buttonwillow, and only if that's full will they proceed to Stockdale Hwy, from which they can still continue south or turn...

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    Drove through early (5-ish) Friday morning on the way to the east side (writing this in the June Lake library), and nothing happening. It does look like they'll wait until after Labor day. Let's hope they at least get it done before the first snow.

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    In case anyone was confused, for 'San Andreas' in the preceding post read 'Altaville'. We used to take Hwy 12 from Lodi to San Andreas, then down 49 to Altaville and Murphy's Grade road, before changing routes to Hwy 4 from Stockton. We later changed again to use 120/108, once they built the...

    Supercharger - Placerville, CA - Broadway (LIVE Aug 30, 2019, 12 V2 stalls)

    I agree that Swift Berry's return to Hwy 50 is a bit awkward. More importantly, it's on the wrong side of the road from all the restaurants and other services. ISTM that a location on the south side of Broadway and a bit more east in the mall, which I think is called Hangtown Village Square...

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    I used to just head up to Stockton and take 4 all the way to San Andreas then Murphy's Grade Rd., but found 108-120/Rawhide Rd./49 to 4 to be a bit faster. Or maybe I just find it a more interesting drive. but I've been passing O'Byrnes Ferry Road for years, so maybe this gives me an excuse to...
