official name for this location yet.
According to Tesla's Website, it's

"Visalia, CA--Valley Fuel Travel Plaza"

Great! If someone could post a screenshot of the nav display or mobile app display for this site that'd be super-helpful

According to the car's navigation and mobile app, there's no Supercharger at this place maybe because it's too early, so Tesla needs to update this info.

The address is from the Tesla electrical cabinet. According to Google Map, this same address is Visalia, CA for Valley Fuel Travel Plaza but also Goshen, CA for Burger King. The stalls spread out from the Burger King to Starbucks parking lots

6 stalls at the Burger King:

Another 7 stalls next to the Starbucks' drive-through:

Another angle toward the street so you see the rest of the stalls in front of the Starbucks on the right, next to the palm tree:

You can see the white foundation of the stalls of unfinished Supercharger across the street between the parking lot black light pole (3 lights and 1 camera) and the red Tesla Parking Sign on the right. There are 20 cement foundations for the stalls across the street in the picture below.

It's only 100 kW for my 2017 Model X but maybe because it is the ripe old age of 7:

While this Supercharger appears on the app on my phone, if I send directions to the car from the app, they do not go through. This location does not appear on the touchscreen in the car, either. Not red, not greyed out. Cannot obtain directions in the car either. I live in Fresno, so its not like this location is hundreds of miles away.

Yet another curious Tesla Motors software conundrum.
 
Finally open! Had to check it out. Here are some drone photos for better geography of the location. Very busy for a new supercharger. Included a shot of the construction across the street.

Went there today. It's $.46 per kWh and most people seem to park in front of the Starbucks, instead of the Burger King. If you pull into the site and it looks like all the spots are taken in front of you, look to your left. Chances are, there is a spot open in front of Burger King.

Very nice site to stop for a charge with both fast food and Starbucks. Lots of big rig trucks pulling in to the area though. Pics below are a 180° panaramic. Tooks pics of the spots in front of the Starbucks, then the entrance from the road in front of the BK, then the Superchargers over by the BK.

Seems weird that they split the chargers in half.

Thread title maintenance stuff.

According to Tesla, this site is simply called "Visalia, CA" (there's no "Valley Fuel Travel Plaza" in the name, which we in the community used to distinguish it from the first-known Supercharger site in Visalia, still under construction). So I've changed the title of this thread to reflect that (moving the "Valley Fuel Travel Plaza" out of the name). I somewhat arbitrarily renamed the thread for the still-under-construction site "Visalia, CA #2".

Hopefully this will alleviate some confusion over what site is "Visalia, CA".

This isn't ideal but it's probably the best we can do until the second site goes on-line and we get an official name.

Bruce.

Thanks Bruce! I was one of those corn-fused cats.

Thanks Bruce. I've adopted these changes until the actual name for site #2 is known.
