    The owner of the Flying J that's the location of the Cisco, TX Supercharger says he's also agreed to install a Supercharger at his location in Midland. Assuming that's the Flying J, the address is:

    3302 Garden City Highway
    Midland, TX US 79706

    See Supercharger - Cisco, TX for more info.

    I'm familiar with that location. There is a LOT of traffic on I20 that passes right by there. Ironically, a ton of oilfield traffic. I can't wait to use it. I went by Oncor in Midland and they would not allow me to use their charger. I go to the federal courthouse in Midland quite often.

    Most of Texas electricity comes from local natural gas, so the oilfield guys should be all in favor of it. At least that's what I tell my O&G clients.

    I was born and raised in Midland. Midland is the true heart of the oil business in Texas. Some people consider Telsa and Hybrids like the anti-christ. Especially now with oil prices low and layoffs high, but others are more open minded.

    Yes,,,, but west Texas is also a HUGE producer of wind energy.

    Anyone who drives this area knows it instantly. Windmills have replaced pump jacks for local scenery.

    Nothing but giant wind generators around Sweetwater, Abilene, etc. Real renewable energy for the SC's.
    The owner of those Flying J's is one smart dude. I look forward to eating there while charging, and spending a few extra bucks in the gift shop besides.

    I've been making inquiries to see if a permit has been applied for. No info on a permit yet.
