Pontiac IL - New Tesla friendly independent DC charging

That will be nice for folks exploring attractions along "Route 66". Tesla has had the route, basically today's I-55->I-44->I-40, Supercharged for a while now. But for non-Teslas there are still some significant gaps. (The worst between Barstow CA and Flagstaff AZ. PlugShare shows EA finally has a couple under construction there though.)

If I were running a DC fast charge network I'd absolutely consider placing CHAdeMO adapters at each site that wasn't co-located with a Supercharger site. EVgo has been experimenting with a few of these here in California. Unfortunately the three EVgo test sites here in Silicon Valley are either co-located, or very near, Superchargers.

Also makes me wonder if PlugShare should have a filter selection for "CHAdeMO + Tesla adapter" to allow folks to easily find these sites.

Thats a great Idea. Chargepoint, Evgo, Greenlots, etc are all going in with multiple Chademos, and more with available adapters.

EA is missing the boat, and their chargers break all of the time.
