    They expanded Barstow, but apparently that wasn't enough. They will soon be building 18 superchargers in Yermo, but apparently that won't be enough either. The permit is out for the new station in Baker, California and... you're going to want to scroll down to see for yourself:

    It's a 40-stall supercharger! There are more permits besides this one:
    B201705450 TESLA - 133 KW INSTALL (1) QED SWITCHGEAR
    B201705451 TESLA - INSTALL (4) SOLAR CANOPYS
    B201705452 TESLA - INSTALL (4) LED CANOPY LIGHT FIXTURES
    B201705453 INSTALL (20) TESLA SUPERCHARGER CABINETS

    The site, 71808 Baker Blvd, is (or at least was) a gas station so this is a sign of changing times.

    Dang 40! A new Superplex Charging spot. Nice. The gas mart is far from all the eat places and other end of Alien Jerky.

    Going to Vegas there going to be many SC.

    Rancho Cucamunga
    Barstow
    Baker
    Primm
    South Las Vegas Strip
    North Vegas / Downtown Vegas

    Yeah the only bad news here is that there is absolutely nothing nearby, but maybe with a Mega-supercharger, they plan on providing their own convenience store/fast food, etc.

    The new sites are appearing faster than supercharge.info can keep up with, as of the time of this post.

    10 minute walk to The Mad Greek. Not bad, if you did not have idle fees.

    Having the car drop you off at the Mad Greek and autonomously drive to the supercharger, charge up, and return will be the hot ticket. This will be a great synergy between EVs and autonomous tech.

    GSP

    PS. The LA to Vegas supercharger coverage will soon be truly impressive, able to handle a huge throughput of vehicles.

    You left out Eddie World 18 stalls in Yermo.

    Baker, Ca is going to have the largest EV charging capacity per capita of any city in the world. Yermo will be right up there too, not sure if it is even a city, maybe its just the Wild West...

    Aren't these SC threads suppose to be in the North America us three of the Charging thread? People start them in the Model S thread and all sorts of odd places.

    I did email supercharge.info with this thread link last night, he's updated it now. Note that this thread is in the wrong location, I think.

    Love it! So once all those get built, I can drive to Vegas just like I used to in a gas car - just stopping in Baker for food, "gas", and pit stops. For me Barstow is a little too close for a regular stop and Primm too far when it comes to standard pit stop criteria.

    They are basically making it so you don't have to plan your charging stops anymore on that route, which is awesome.

    Threads dedicated to a specific Supercharger location are placed in the appropriate forum for their area. All California Supercharger threads are placed in the California Superchargers forum, which is where this one is.

    Even though I will probably never visit these particular supercharger locations, I excited just to see the huge progress in the construction.

    On the upside there is plenty of empty space around if anyone wants to go into business!

    LOL I was actually thinking of this earlier today. Just to snatch up the land near these mega-superchargers probably wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Chuq, I read the same article and was skeptical back then. Lots of talk and no action. Just like traditional auto makers. There's very few EV's that'll even try to get to Baker to charge other than Teslas so talk of EVgo and ABB 350kW chargers going in before SC is just ludicrous.

    Sounds like Gigafactory 1(Battery) being in Nevada had an effect on Nevada business support by Tesla.
