Chargepoint's Baker site is now under construction. EVgo already has 6 chargers about a block away, this will make a total of 10. Vegas should be pretty easy after this one and Yermo go live.

A couple new corridor charging sites are available now.

One new corridor is the northern route to Yosemite on Highway 120. There is a site in Oakdale and at Rush Creek Lodge. Those two sites make Tuolumne Meadows reachable from the Bay Area with fast chargers.

Plugshare - Oakdale Public Parking
Plugshare - Rush Creek Lodge
Also in that area there are two coming soon in Groveland and Oakhurst. All of these are ChargePoint CEC grant sites from the Interregional Corridors grant.

One new site on I-5:
Plugshare - Walmart Patterson (EA)

It looks like there's a new Chargepoint site in Oakhurst as well that is just about to come online as well.

Plugshare - Vons Shopping Center

This location would help anyone going to Yosemite from the south via the southern entrance on SR41.

There's still nothing on SR41 between Fresno and SLO though so that makes driving the RAV4 from SLO to Yosemite challenging.

Yes, one or more of the future sites in Shandon (CalTrans), Kettleman City (CalTrans), and Lemoore (ChargePoint) would be necessary for an easy trip from SLO to the Yosemite area.

Looks like Electrify America has started work on two sites along 395 up to Mammoth - Bishop and Coso Junction. I love what EA is doing.

There's also a few key sites on Plugshare that have been mostly complete for months but still not open. Wheeler Ridge on I-5 at the base of the Grapevine and Yermo on I-15 come to mind. I suspect they're waiting for the power company to hook it all up. Frustrating.

It also looks like Electrify America has a chance to be the first to close the gap between Salinas and San Luis Obispo 101 too. They have a "coming soon" site in Greenfield. However, those Plugshare entries most likely come from EA's online map, not from actual evidence of construction. However, you never know, Envision Solar could drop their solar+battery+DCFC systems at the Camp Roberts rest stops at any time. I really have to wonder what is taking Recargo so long to get their sites going on the 101 corridor.

I just drove up to Mammoth. Checked out the Bishop and Coso Junction Electrify America sites. Coso Junction is nearly complete with 4 stalls. Bishop is also underway, looks like at least 4 stalls there as well. I posted pics to Plugshare.

Bad news for the 101 corridor. Recargo is missing their deadlines for installing their grant funded charging sites and the State issued a pre-emptive stop work order to notify them that they will probably not get any of their grant funds.

That's really sad about Recargo. Would any other company be able to step in to get the grants?

In better news, Chargepoint's site at the foot of the Grapevine finally powered up (after almost six months.) That makes it much easier to get in/out of LA on I-5.

Oakhurst near Yosemite is also open

The thing that I'm most frustrated about is that ChargePoint is not bringing the sites fully online and activating them on their network. It doesn't do anyone any good for them to be powered on but not showing as available on the network.

Baker, Yermo and Buttonwillow have all been installed for quite some time, but not available. Some may not have utility service yet, but the Lebec site has had power for weeks but is still not shown on the network today.
