Just saw a new charging station being installed at The local Walmart. 4 150KW CCS charge stations and 1 level 2 station. No CHAdeMO outlets!
The brand was Electrify America (edit update to correct brand.)

Likewise, the two most recent DC "fast chargers" installed in Albuquerque, NM are Chargepoint CCS only.
It is also true that ALL the Nissan dealerships in the population centers of New Mexico have taken down their DC fast charging, if not all charging services.

I wonder what these events portend ?

EA always has one Chademo cable, shared with a CCS cable on a charge station. That's what the web page for EA shows, and Plugshare shows.

Indeed. In fact, I believe they would be in violation of the consent decree if they didn't provide that CHAdeMO outlet.

I went back and looked again just to make sure. Five parking spaces. There are 2 kiosks with 2 cables each. All 4 cables are marked as "CCS 150KW". There is a level 2 single cable kiosk as well. Unless they are planning to put more kiosks in on the other side ( there is parking there but I don't see any pads or wiring there), no Chademo plugs at all. It is disappointing not to see at least one Chademo plug. The Walmart across town has both CCS and Chademo plugs but it was installed 18 months ago by Evgo.

Without Plugshare url, I'd say FUD.

If that's the final configuration, that would be a first. If this is the Walmart on Dennery road, there aren't any photos posted on Plugshare yet. One possibility is that the combined unit may be located some distance away from the CCS-only ones. I was very surprised to see this was the case at the Tracy site, under construction when i visited it on 10/23. The site you're describing sounds like an urban site as is Tracy: 2 CCS/1CCS-Chademo/1 L2. The dual-standard unit was located separately, at least 30 yards away from the others, for no reason that I could figure.

It's the Walmart on Murphy Canyon off the I-15 at Aero Drive. There don't appear to be any other chargers nearby. I haven't checked any other locations locally where there are Walmarts.
