I am very happy to see your presence in this forum. I have been using your network for almost 3 years now, and consider your public presence to be one of the most positive forces out there to help advertise and introduce the EV lifestyle to our country.

I appreciate that you would like to get more chargepoint stations, as I would love to see them all over and use the stations EVERYWHERE.... Your interest in getting new businesses and organizations to become network members is the KEY to the future of electric vehicles.

However, I think that your business model of asking the public to request stations is not the most efficient. We as consumers really cannot be referring business to you because the businesses themselves may not even know that these things exist, and not understand the benefits of charging stations.

I think that you ALREADY have a major group that is interested in helping you and will directly benefit by your success.... And that group is US, the current EV drivers who understand the benefits of your charging stations. In effect, WE can be the soldiers in our fight to popularize the electric cars and the mainstream charging station presence in our country.

I would STRONGLY request that your company share the details of how a business installs your charging stations. In addition, please give us a printable flyer that we, the consumers could share with all the businesses, offices, parks, schools, churches, gas stations, etc. If the consumers who work, shop, worship, or frequent would ask these places for the charging stations, I am sure that you will get a fantastic response if we had printed information for them to inquire about your services.

I have many ideas to share in the future, if you would like to continue contact, please private message me.

Again, thank you for your very needed and appreciated services.....

When will ChargePoint start...and FINISH installation of the DC stations along the I-5 corridor In North California, funded by the CEC ~ a year and a half ago.

And what is the schedule for completion of the ChargePoint DC stations on the other corridors shown on this map?

Hello!

Regarding the CEC grant, we have information here (http://bit.ly/chargepoint-cec), and the 2018 completion date stated there is the timeline you can expect. However, we'll share more information as soon as we can! Though, at this stage, the best way to stay informed is to either subscribe to our blog, follow us on Facebook, or check our press news regularly, here: http://bit.ly/chargepointnews :)

You can use ChargePoint to supplement Tesla stations when charging a Model 3 (or Model S, or Model X), which are often free to use. However, we respect that every EV driver may have a preference in charging, too! You'll find that when you use the ChargePoint app you'll be able to locate not only ChargePoint stations but also Tesla stations near you!

I also wanted to share with you this article from InsideEVs: ChargePoint Releases Tesla Model 3 Charging Primer, 80% Of Tesla ChargePoint Charges Have Been Free http://bit.ly/2y7F0wQ

Hello chargepoint and thanks for joining the forum. I wonder if you could shed some light on why there is such an absence of charge facilities on the corridor from LA to Vegas. It would seem this is a route that could benefit greatly from dense coverage.

Thanks again.
