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.
