    I'm happy to see the west I-10 corridor start to fill up with SC but I'm also surprised that NOTHING has been done about Arkansas. jdo might be right that I-10 will finish before we see SC in Arkansas

    I was viewing the progress of Supercharger installs across Interstate 10 and noted the Ft. Stockton permit this morning. From San Antonio going west, there is one in process at Junction, TX and Ozona, TX as well. It's 245 miles or so from Ft. Stockton, TX to El Paso. Even if there was a SC in El Paso, I don't believe my S75 could make it from Ft. Stockton to El Paso It's nice to see hotels like Holiday Inn Express and Marriott embracing Tesla.

    Call the city of Van Horn , TX

    Ask for the electrical permits office, ask them.

    That is what I did at Fort Stockton.

    They enjoyed the question.

    Google the number

    Thanks

    This.
    Ardmore, OK also enjoyed the question. But Baytown, TX required me to file a FOIA request.

    One might point out permits are in the public domain.

    I would be curious why any city, countynofficial would claim A FOIA was required.

    Public record.... But they are just lazy, probably.

    There's no contradiction there. Some public records need written request for disclosure.

    Is that a State, city, or county requirement ?

    In this case, there was no permit to find in The City Of Baytown. The FOIA request process bought them twenty days to do the search and they came back on Day 21 with a 'nothing found'
    (the Baytown SC ended up being in Channelview).

    There are several hotels clustered together here. Drove around all of them but saw no signs of construction. I also checked around the Flying J up the road. No Joy. Next stop Ozona.

    The permit for the Fort Stockton supercharger is at the Fairfield Inn & Suites, but that's in the cluster of hotels for which you found no activity.

    Thanks for that. This is a little disappointing, that Ozona is nearly finished and Van Horn construction is started, but there is a hole here in Ft. Stockton. I suppose one could go up to Midland and across to Van Horn, but that is a long span for an S60D since Pecos isn't started, either. Maybe Ozona to the destination charger at the BW in Pecos...

    True, but I can only use 48 of the 75 amps, so about 36 MPH. Ozona to Van Horn would be doable without the stop if I slow down. One of those cases where going slower is faster (but not as much fun on an 80 mph road).
