    A thread dedicated the the construction and progress of the Grand Junction, CO supercharger. The superchargers are to be located at Mesa Mall between Cabela's and Sears.

    Update: Sure but steady progress has been impeded by bitter cold. Pesky inversion has been keeping temps below 0 for lows, and just below freezing for highs. Awesome, experienced, patient contractor Gary thought the weather could delay completion until mid January. Tesla equipment is onsite, and unlike Cheyenne WY, it looks like the transformer is ready to energize!

    Here is my post at Grand Junction, CO Supercharger - Page 3:


    Yes, and Farmington, NM showed up there as well!!!

    Blanding should be on-line in a few days, but Moab not for a couple of weeks. Even so, Grand Junction to Blanding will be possible in an 85, and with some hypermiling in a 60. Then you have Farmington and Gallup. Gallup to Flagstaff (also added today) is possible in an 85.

    We Colorado MS owners are starting to be connected!

    This was a big day for the 4-Corners region, 3 of the 4 states represented and the 4th coming in a few days!! :biggrin:

    Moab is only 2-3 weeks away, but it is a hole that can be hypermiled across for those willing to dare! :wink:
