Francis Energy was awarded the contracts to start building out DCFC in NM with the VW money. In April they established a local branch in Roswell. They're based in Oklahoma and have been incredibly prolific at installing DCFCs there so I would expect that we should start seeing a lot of activity in NM any day now.

From Pecos doesn't look too bad if you have a LR.

Nic King has a really cozy Airbnb in Carlsbad with a 14-50 too. Listed on Plugshare. Super nice guy.

Yes, very nice guy. The room though, while functional and clean, is 1/2 a star and at least when I stayed there cost $100.
He thoughtfully puts out ear plugs for guests who find the hot water heat pump in the corner too noisy. ;)

The room is a DIY converted garage. Visitors should keep their expectations low but revel in the fully charged car in the AM. The other positive is a nice neighborhood and nearby riverwalk.

Yep. Pretty cool !

The charging will be relatively expensive if it follows OK, but as a bridge to Supercharging it will be most welcome. Time for TOCNM to buy a community CHAdeMO adapter while waiting for a Tesla blessed CCS adapter.

This translates as "we didn't pay for the equipment or the installation so we won't list it."

That's what I got out of it too.
I recently stayed in a newer Home2Suite (Hilton property) in Page, AZ. There were 2 Tesla destination chargers in the parking lot. Those were not listed on the Tesla site either, I suspect because there was a Supercharger literally 1 mile away. I was the only one plugged into either charger for both nights we stayed. Nice!
