Yes, I thought Greenfield won out - but Soledad also makes sense given the amount of EV backups that have occurred during the holidays (from SLO on up). But Goleta, Buellton, Pismo, SLO, Atascadero, Paso Robles, Greenfield, Soledad, Salinas, Gilroy, and Morgan Hill will serve US 101 (LA to SF) for quite a while to come.
I know - some day soon I may eat those words.
Between Pismo Beach and Buellton we’ll soon also have Arroyo Grande and Santa Maria on 101.
There’s an olive grower at San Ardo exit on 101 (south of King City) that a few years back had offered up his property as a SC location. He had put in destination chargers but due to the lack of SC in that stretch of 101 thought it would be a good location for Tesla SC but they turned it down. Nothing else there but his olive farm and store but he said due to his olive press machinery the power they would need was already installed to the area.
Really nothing south between King City and Paso Robles. I think there’s a small town area at Bradley, and San Ardo has a small town too, both off 101 a small bit. Both towns have on and off ramps at 101 going north and south I’m pretty sure. This guy’s olive farm is right at the exit however. If nothing else his destination chargers were nice to have if you needed some range to make it to the next SC. Nice guy too and EV minded. Enjoyed a tour of his operation and enjoyed his olive oil that we took home. I had thought King City might have been a consideration but then Greenfield went in just north of there but something further south of King City would be nicer any way.
