I'm actually headed into the current service center for cabin air filters and a look at the front upper control arms. Might ask them if both service centers will remain open...

Also going to resist the temptation to upgrade to a Y right then and there, but that's a whole different can of worms.
24?? o_O
There?

I think some of those are for the service center/store to charge up new/fixed cars. 16 makes sense for public facing to me.

Granted, I believe that having public superchargers at stores and/or service centers is pretty rare now a days, but it's a big empty field they are building in, so why not?

Thanks for the address, it wasn't in Baker Construction's post.

I drove by yesterday when I picked up my sister for a run to the airport, saw the dirt being moved. She said that a local neighborhood Facebook group had posted about it. Think having the superchargers there is making her consider a Tesla.... in a few years.

Looks like charging stations all around the store and then one more section not against the store. I assume the section that's not right up against the store will be public and the others will be for customers/new deliveries.

Odd how close it is to the other V3 "spokane" supercharger... but I guess it makes sense to go ahead and build some if you're building the site out from the get go. Certainly gives redundancy when traveling and capacity for the local area...

Wonder when the Tri Cities area will get a Tesla location.... starting to see a lot of Tesla's down here and it seem like the "final" obvious location for Tesla (until they just start to double down on their city locations and open additional branches).

If we're talking Northwest in general, Montana could really use a service center. We often drive to Kalispell and the closest center is in Spokane.

Super happy to see this center open and the extra super chargers! We use the Coeur d'Alene chargers as they are the last leg before Kalispell when driving north via Bonners Ferry, so this will help offload more I90 goers!

I don't disagree, but in fairness to Tesla, other car companies don't have much of a presence in Montana either. I just met up with some guys in Kalispell and one of them had to head to Spokane after the meet up to get his Porsche serviced. He had driven it out from Chicago and encountered some type of problem along the way.

His story reminded me of a hilarious Yellowstone road trip I took with my dad as a kid where there was a big heat wave and the brand new computerized HVAC system of his fancy Cadillac was stuck on 85F with blowers on "HI" the whole way. This was 1991 ish and this car was high tech for its time. Fortunately the car had a sunroof so we just drove fast with the sunroof open. Dad got a $5 speeding ticket in Montana (which he paid on the spot in cash lol) and a nasty sunburn but otherwise the trip was still pretty fun. Anyways, on the way back we stopped in Spokane as that was the nearest place to get his Caddy serviced at the time.

A guy I knew had an old car that was a little "special". It wasn't a problem with the HVAC system. It was that the radiator system wasn't working right, so he had to keep the cabin heat blowing on high all year round to vent enough heat away from the engine to avoid a meltdown.
That's how I would have to drive over Manastash pass all summer in my VW Golf. 🤣

Largest reason I bought myself a nice new car as soon as I was out of college and was making money.
