I've gone SLC to Green River directly, and Green River to SLC directly, many times in an S85. The way back is usually a bit close, but I've never felt like I wasn't going to make it. Though I'm happy if this is true, will make this a mindless trip.

The most important quote, "The station will be near the Holiday Inn Express at 923 West Westwood Blvd." Now Price can get a blue dot on Supercharge.Info.



The only question is why ?
SLC to Green River is doable on a single charge. More than one person has done this before without problem. Seems like Twin Falls would have been a lot more useful right now.

At 180 miles, SLC to Green River is too far in the winter, especially with quick charge times. I doubt that this is either/or, and we just have not found out about Twin Falls, yet.

S60 in winter would be a challenge to make from SLC to GR or vise versa.


/edit Also I've been to the spot where the charger is going several times. It happens to be a good bathroom break spot between SLC in GR. There's a decent restaurant there in the hotel as well. Not much else close by though.

Not to mention that the closer Tesla spaces their Superchargers the more charging options we get, especially with clement weather. Travelers from Interstate 80 down to Interstate 70 will now have an option of skipping Green River between Price and Grand Junction (60s excluded.) I think this is a practical approach, as it will take some of the stress off supercharging if we are given options in planning our charging stops.

We stopped by the site at Price on July 18. The Holiday Inn Express was clearly JUST completed. It appeared that one corner of the parking lot was left without a curb or landscaping, and we presume that the supercharger will go there. We found no other evidence of construction, and were in a hurry to continue our long drive, so did not query the staff. It is a nice spot, very easy to find off the highway.
