    On the 2016 map of superchargers from Tesla's website, it looks like there will be a couple of superchargers in easter Idaho: one by Pocatello, and one by Idaho Falls.

    This should help the N-S travel along I-15 in Idaho and into western Wyoming (where it looks like Jackson may also get a supercharger).

    Does anyone who live in the area have any idea on whether anything's been permitted there yet?

    No permits at supercharge.info, but maybe no one has searched for them.

    Thanks for the link. That's cool for the Boise-Salt Lake route, but doesn't help going up I-15 to Idaho Falls and into western Wyoming...

    I hear from reliable sources that something may be starting in Pocatello "soon." Keep your eyes open...

    This might need to be the Pocatello thread. There was a separate discussion for Idaho Falls, where they signed up for cheaper power if they find a site there.

    How "soon" is the question. This would be the best as I make that trip up to east idaho often. Cant wait.

    Just got this from the Supercharger team. I hope they are further along than not. Would love to have the Pocatello Supercharger in before mid summer.

    "Hello,

    Thank you for your email and welcome to the Tesla Family! We are happy to share that we have chosen a location in the Pocatello area, but we are unable to make guarantees about opening dates. There are a number of scenarios that can affect the timeline for a new site but we are working hard to open as many sites as quickly as we can. We understand the need for more Superchargers and we are excited to announce new sites on our website and in your Model S.

    We appreciate your patience, enthusiasm and support in Tesla and our Supercharger technology."

    Location is maybe a hotel along 15? It does say Pocatello area, surely near a hotel or food though?

    Construction has started in Pocatello (poured foundation). Parking lot marked for construction in Idaho Falls, expecting excavation anytime now.

    You will need to go to the "Northwest" thread. Preliminary address info on both locations is located there.
