Yeah and I'm last...
Ouch... NorCal needs some serious SC expansion...
Everyone is heading north. The next supercharger has only 4 stalls!
I just did Los Angeles to Indianapolis and back; saw maybe 6-7 tesla's combined, yep, Cali is a different animal.
The eclipse rush... 4 stalls... OMG...
I use that SC often and I am usually the only one there.... this is clearly eclipse mania. It is pretty much impossible to build out infrastructure that can deal with these types of events. I even heard they are worried about running out of gas in Oregon.
It's been more than 2 hours and still probably another hour before I can even start charging. Charging will be slower as well...
Yeah, would be nice if the OP were able to edit the thread title.
Likely Corning Supercharger | Tesla. Heck, I grew up in the SF Bay Area and w/o looking it up, I'd have no idea where it is.
Wow... this is madness!
There was another thread (can't find it at the moment) about the overflow at the Corning supercharger.
Bad news for people stuck waiting, but great news for showing the economic viability of supercharging stations. Keep 'em busy so more money will pour into building more of them!
I assume people are looking at alternatives in the area? CHAdeMO in Chico, NEMA 14-50s, etc. CHAdeMOs might be also overused, but RV parks probably aren't overly full. It's certainly not supercharging, but when the supercharger line is 4 hours long before you can even start....
I guess the best thing one can do is just drive painfully slow so that you don't have to charge as much. Blinkers on!
Sorry didn't out the location in the title, just in the message. After almost 4 hours of wait im charging now.
Starbucks is definitely getting more business now
Wow. That's nuts!
Were folks in ICEVs shaking their heads or chortling at the long line?
Ha, I was one of the cars in your video. Not heading north, though, just chose the wrong day to come back south from a camping trip. 3 hour wait for us.
Since you're going to have lots of time on your hands David99, keep us updated on your travels!
Would be interesting to know how many were charging to 100%. Not efficient, but people get worried. I waited 45 minutes in Denver, and most were pushing to 100%.
Curious: How do you know this?
Hear-say. Fellow in front of me was talking to the other drivers/saw the dash in their cars. He came to make sure I knew he was next in line since he was not in his car, and it was parked in a normal spot.
