The Electrify America site off I-5 west of Bakersfield is now open. It is at the intersection of CA-43 and CA-119 about 1-2 miles off I-5. This closes the 118 mile DCFC gap between the ChargePoint Harris Ranch site and the ChargePoint Tejon Ranch site and reduces it to 90 miles. I am purposely ignoring the low power EVRUS CHAdeMO charger in Lost Hills because I would never plan a trip that depended on it. ChargePoint has another more useful site in Buttonwillow coming soon, but it's not open yet.

The CEC Chargepoint in Victoville just went live. Right next door to an existing EVgo, so it fills no gaps, but still one more option on the way to Las Vegas. Hopefully, they'll get the sites in Yermo and Baker up and running soon.

Looks like the I-15 corridor got some more options. The Chargepoint in Baker seems to have gone live. Still waiting on the chargers in Barstow/Yermo to make LA -> Vegas downright easy.

ChargePoint has opened a CEC funded site in Fresno. It's the last fast charging station in Fresno on CA-41 going north toward the next DCFC in Oakhurst and Yosemite beyond that.

Plugshare - Fresno Macy's River Park

This station has a pair of the new Express 250 units. It is listed in the ChargePoint app as 62.5kW.

ChargePoint has opened another CEC funded site in Auburn. Two Express 200 units and a dual head L2 station. It is just down the street from the existing EVgo DriveTheARC site.

ChargePoint sites in Placerville and Colfax have appeared in the ChargePoint app, but do not show status yet and don't show successful charges in Plugshare yet. The Colfax site has not been added to Plugshare yet.

The ChargePoint Dunnigan site is open, with a single 50kW unit across the street from the Electrify America site.

Colfax and Placerville are fully open and listed in the ChargePoint app.

Strangely, the Dunnigan, Red Bluff, and Redding stations don't show up in the ChargePoint app. They have all reported a variety of problems in the last month or so. Anderson, just south of Redding, seems to be OK.

The Electrify America site on I-5 at Panoche Road is now open. It is almost equidistant between the fast chargers at Harris Ranch and Gustine / Santa Nella. EA is also under construction at Harris Ranch. The Panoche Shell site has a pair of 350kW stations and a pair of 150kW stations. One 150kW station has a 50kW CHAdeMO connector and a 150kW CCS connector. All other stations have redundant CCS connectors.

This is not really a corridor charging site and it's not CEC funded, but I thought it was noteworthy.

There is a relatively new site in Pomona, CA that has the first paired ChargePoint Express 250 installation that I know of. When ChargePoint announced the Express Plus charging system in January 2017, they announced this pairing capability. Each station contains a charging unit that can output 156A at 400VDC, limiting the amps if the voltage is higher, for a maximum power of 62.5kW. When the stations are paired and only one car is charging, all the available power can be directed to that vehicle, up to 312A and 125kW. The user interface on this installation indicates this capability, but none of the Plugshare checkins have validated it. I also don't have any information about what CHAdeMO limits are applied at this station. Presumably the best it could be is 200A since that is the best CHAdeMO cable on the market at the moment.

The Electrify America site in Paso Robles on Spring St is now live.

https://www.plugshare.com/location/193091

I got an e-mail from Electrify America at 7AM stating it was live. Another person commented three of the four pairs of chargers were functional. I hope one of those is the CHAdeMO connection.

With the Paso Robles site coming up, the gap to the next DC fast charger is reduced to less than 100 miles. (The chargers at the CALTRANS rest stop sites are not reliable enough to be useful.) The next site that seems to be under construction is in King City. The two Chargepoint stations are installed, but not live yet. They also aren't listed on the Chargepoint website yet. It took only 5 years to get a CHAdeMO charger between SLO and Salinas.
