Great news to hear about Lubbock! I believe there are several folks who check regularly for permits in the Lubbock area so hopefully this shows up officially on supercharge.info soon, and while they’re at it they might as well get Clovis knocked out to open another I20->I40 route.Ok, we stopped at the aforementioned superchargers. I can report the Childress supercharger is all up and running at the reported 150KW rate. No V3 chargers there and not likely anytime soon. (See below for why I think so) Amarillo does not have any V3 chargers installed. Clayton is still only reporting 4 active chargers and I got the advertised 250KW for awhile until it ramped down as expected. I was in the fourth stall out from boxes. Pro tip; when pulling into the stall, park close to the pedestal if you have a passenger that needs to get out! Still no dial tone on the pay phone but I didn’t drop a coin in to see if that worked.
In other news, when we pulled into the Childress SC, a Tesla service mechanic was busy replacing one of the charge cords and was very talkative. He mentioned Lubbock has been permitted and should be starting construction in the near future. That will open up another quicker route going from I-20 to Amarillo. He also said he would check out the sketchy charging cord we found in Sweetwater.
We will check the Trinidad charger tomorrow but I doubt there will be anything new to report.
