Will it have solar canopies and a lounge like Kettleman City?

I sure liked the shade from the solar canopies in Kettleman City and Baker — it was 101º in Baker when I was there recently. Perhaps Daly City is too cool and foggy to need solar canopies.

Doubt it, it's not that hot there and it is on mall property but it's huge!

Yep. Daly City's on the San Francisco peninsula, so it doesn't get very warm, and fog is the norm in the summer. While PV will still work there, you don't need it for shade: https://www.google.com/search?q=daly+city+climate&rlz=1C1GCEA_enUS772&oq=daly+city+climate&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l3.3332j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Ft. Stockton and Pecos are finally open!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yciX2meIkXI

Still need either San Antonio or Boerne for those with smaller batteries who are just passing through on I-10 rather than spending the night there, so they don't have to detour over to San Marcos, but these two sites were long anticipated and much needed. The (mostly) snow-free I-10 X-C route is almost done.

For those who don't go to or poke around "TMC" much, when future Supercharger installation sites pop up, often threads are started and people post observations as work progresses.

Examples:
https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... ls.109312/
https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... 18.125388/ - if you jump to post 54, you'll see there are over a dozen of the urban type (72 kW max output per unit) Superchargers
https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... pe.106178/ - this one's online now

'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)
'06 Prius

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Aside: Are you a Tesla owner now?

a) On the 'Changes' page there is a link to the TMC forum for each site in-progress or opened.
b) On the map you can click on a site and use the 'discuss' link to go to the TMC forum.

Via IEVS:
Tesla To Double Supercharger Capacity By End Of 2019
https://insideevs.com/tesla-double-supercharger-end-2019/

My comment at IEVS on Elon's claims:
Why on earth anyone at this point would believe Tesla’s claims about how many SCs they’re going to add ‘next year’ is beyond me. After all, they claimed they would have 10k stalls at the end of 2017, and fell more than 1,600 short of that (8,352 per supercharge.info), not to mention that they claimed they’d get to 18,000 stalls at the end of this year. Actual worldwide total as of 11/18/18 per the same source? 11,361.

Tesla has overclaimed the number of SCs they’d complete every single year, typically by 30% or more. This year looks to set a new record for them for under-performance, unless anyone thinks they’re somehow going to complete 6,600+ SC stalls between now and the end of the year, when they’ve managed 3k YTD. Elon might as well claim that they’ll install the first SCs on the moon by the end of this year, and on Mars in 2019 – it would have about the same credibility.

Anyone notice that his thread is 90% comprised of a few posters that don't own a Tesla and don't likely post on TMC. It also comprises the majority of posts on MNL .

What is 'it' ?

My impression of MNL is that a small group of very active posters account for the majority of posts. They seemingly do not tire of arguing with each other although the occasional thread asking if a used LEAF is a good buy adds spice.
