Looks like the Crescent City ChargePoint site also recently opened.

Electrify America seems to have a strong bias towards CCS. Most locations seem to have only one CHAdeMO plug. They are building a site near me in Pismo Beach and it has 4 stations with CCS and only 1 CHAdeMO. So it will be a wait if the CHAdeMO is tied up.

They're only adding CHAdeMO because of the dieselgate settlement. They had to provide charging for all vehicles, so one plug for us and a bunch of plugs for the VW EV customers hitting the streets in a year or two.

That said, I really like what EA is doing overall. It will soon be possible to cross the US entirely on fast charging thanks to them.

Besides Nissan who is really committed to CHAdeMo?

They are the only ones if you include their partner Mitsubishi. The Kia Soul EV has CHAdeMO, but the next generation one with 60kWh battery will have CCS. For new cars it will only be the Leaf and Outlander PHEV with CHAdeMO.

The Electrify America site in Dunnigan is open now. It has 4 stations, 150kW each, but only one CHAdeMO connector. That connector is limited to 50kW for now. They claim that they will increase it to 100kW when further testing is completed. This reduces the longest stretch along I-5 between the Bay Area and the Oregon border to 93 miles. That is Dunnigan to Red Bluff. The Red Bluff ChargePoint site is not completely online, but it looks like one of the 3 50kW chargers is online.

Electrify America has another Coming Soon site in Willows that will reduce the longest segment to 54 miles, Redding to Dunsmuir.

Chargepoint is certainly on a roll. The site in Lebec, at the foot of the Grapevine, is now under construction. This location should get a lot of use.

The State released another Localized Health Impacts Report for the GFO-15-601 North-South Corridors Grant. This is Addendum #6. The report can be found here.

This is the essence of the report:

The only interesting changes (IMHO) are that the EVgo Dunnigan site was moved all the way up to Corning and the King City Recargo site was moved from the truck stop outside of town into downtown. I would have preferred the shopping center near the freeway, but this is still an improvement and it will help the local businesses downtown instead of just the franchise stores and restaurants.

The fact that these sites are still not settled is in itself a little unsettling. The original Health Impacts Report for this grant was issued 3 years ago, March 11, 2016. Of the 41 sites identified in the original report, only 7 sites are open today, 3 years later.

My Google Map showing all the grant sites has been updated.

The State release yet another Localized Health Impacts report today. This time for the GFO-15-603 Inter-Regional Corridors grant. This is Addendum #5 for this grant. The report can be found here.

This table summarizes the changes. These sites are all to be installed by ChargePoint.

This table is different because they have backup locations, marked by an asterisk, for a few sites. To me, this means that they still don't have definitive agreements and utility studies done for these sites. Sigh.

Google map has been updated with the new sites. Only the new non-asterisked address was entered.

The ChargePoint site at the Stockton Target off I-5 and Eight Mile Road is open. Three 50kW DCFCs and a dual head L2. Nice 75 mile distance from Santa Nella. This will eliminate the need to detour to Tracy or Galt on the way to Sacramento from the south.

I also just noticed my first EVConnect grant site online in Palmdale. It appears to be a single BTC 50kW unit plus some L2's.

Edit: My mistake. Palmdale is not the first CEC site for EVconnect. Blythe has been online since November.
