My ultimate wish list would be QCs in Bridgeport, Lee Vining, June Lake, Mammoth Lakes, Bishop, Big Pine, Independence, Lone Pine, Olancha (the town itself, not Coso Junction), Inyokern, Mojave and Kramer Junction, plus Panamint Springs and Furnace Creek. There are gas stations in all of these, and QCs will need to be just as dense if BEVs are to offer anything approaching the flexibility and convenience of ICEs.danrjones wrote:Interesting, thank you.
Nothing for lone pine though?
I believe there are a few EVGO chargers in California that charge up to 100kW. For example, the one at 2115 6th St, Sacramento, CA, USA has three 100kW plugs and three 50kW plugs.SageBrush wrote: Outside of EA or other VW dieselgate funded initiatives, new CHAdeMO in the US is like seeing a dodo bird. Don't be surprised if we never see a single 100 kW CHAdeMO in the USA. Not only is the network protocol in caretaker mode, I gather that the 100 kW DCFC is quite expensive
Paul, I know, I was referring to what I'd like to see as an ultimate list. The problem for me and most Bay Area people with Bridgeport is that it forces you to take slower and longer 108 (or do a 50 mile round trip the opposite direction we want to go from L.V.) for those of us traveling from the Bay Area over to 395 who want to head south, which is the majority of the traffic. 120 is much better and sees a lot more traffic*, and L.V.'s the obvious place to put the QC if installing them at the best junctions rather than just taking account of spacing to minimize the number of sites is your priority.paulgipe wrote:Guy,
Bridgeport has a EA station going in.
