Agreed, Alozzy. Don’t be Tesla. I was suggesting a continuous expansion program taking years. Choose initial markets carefully. There are 2,000 of these truck stops to choose from. Site doesn’t have electrified truck parking lot? Pass it. No unused space next to the 13kv transformer at the edge of the lot? Pass it. Not located outside LA/SFO/SEA/PLT? Pass it (...in year 1).
Second, unlike Tesla, ChargePoints cost money to use... $5-$10 per visit. A 5-year break-even might be met with one customer per day. There are 53 US metros over 1mm population, each with 3-6 freeways entering that metro. I suspect that within 2-3 years, the first truck stop on each freeway outside each of those metros could provide one DCFC customer per day, paying an average $7.50 to “fill up.” And once you’ve lit the first truck stop, you can start looking at the second (then the third...).
But even if that 1st truck stop is your only 5-year goal, that’s still one new DCFC per week to install. That’s not a pace which can be achieved by asking strangers on the Internet to fill-out a web form to express interest, then research the locations, then approach the owners...
I was mostly posting to point out that DCFC deployment to-date has been haphazard, with a lack of consistency in placement. EV owners look like they’re hunting Pokémon, following smartphone apps and driving miles off the freeway to find a DCFC at a coffee shop 3 towns over. But truck stops are spaced regularly, have a predictable layout, enjoy an excess of space, have a supporting business model, a single corporate owner able to enter agreements, and now have lots of amps strung out to the cabs in the parking lot (to meet idling restrictions).
