Arizona-based GoE3 plans 500 Interstate-adjacent EV chargers by 2015
Talked to one of the officers in this company (also a Roadster owner) who said that their Level III chargers also will have 220v/50a connections for Roadster charging. We didn't discuss the connectors, but I'm assuming hookups like at RV camps.
That's smart. Wish all fast chargers did this as well.
"GoE3 will charge a hefty $12.50 for a full charge at Level 3 machines"
ExxonMobil is charging me a hefty $60 for a full charge at their gas pumps....GoE3 sounds like a bargain to me!

(Somehow they have some WKtEC / RotEC footage in there?)
Do we know what Level 3 charging interface GOe3 is planning to deploy?
CHAdeMO, I assume.
We should know more soon:

Bruce was getting a demo of the Roadster about a year ago while I was attending a small brunch gathering of Tesla owners in Phoenix. He asked me about my roadster and I gave him the usual 5 minute Tesla/solar talk. He told me recently at a High School science fair that my talk with him convienced him to buy his Roadster. Starting GoE3 was his own idea, I'm not that bright. Wish him the best with this venture. At least we can be sure he understands the needs of the Tesla community.
Interesting that the $12.50 per QC aligns well with the $10-$15 range proposed by NRG Energy in the California settlement.
Keep thinking we need a thread that features "Roadsters as billboards". I imagine the S will sport a lot of logos and graphics. EU also seems to do this more than the US.

Quick Charge at Picacho Peak - Arizona Public Media
Arizona-based GoE3 to unveil southern Arizona's first Level 3 EVSE at Picacho Peak on Saturday, December 8th | PluginCars.com
GoE3's CEO owns a Roadster (at least the company does) and he's committed to putting 70 amp level II sources along side their Level III DC stations. This is what we roadster owners would like TM to do with their Supercharger sites. It will certainly make the roadster a much more usable vehicle for traveling. And providing these stations along I-8 and I-10 will get us access to the much better west coast charging infrastructure. It seems these kinds of buildouts are progressing very slowly, but really it's probably a bit ahead of the electric vehicle population.
I'm having trouble finding current information on what connector GOe3 uses for it's level 2 charger. As you may be aware, the Model S only comes with a 14-50 and a J1772 adapter, but not a Roadster adapter. And can't find any information about where the currently operating sites are, other than a press release announcing one at Picacho. I saw a reference to Route 66 being involved. Are there any sites up and running along 66?
Wish I had more info about GoE3's plan/schedule, but I do not. Their web site isn't very revealing either as to the design of their stations. GoE3 is fairly active in the Phoenix area EV meetings and my conversations with the CEO were from a year ago at least. I believe most of the activity has been concentrated in the Phoenix - Tucson corridor to this point.
