That's a lot of chargers. Not bad, perhaps they realize they won't be selling as much gasoline as before.

EZ Trip is part of the Pilot truck stop chain. I wonder if there will be more of these. A quick search didn't turn up anything.

10 x 50 kW, eh? The low-powered charging of yesteryear coupled with the high EV volumes of tomorrow.

Too bad they didn't put 6 x 150 kW instead...

More open sites:

ChargePoint CEC Sites:
Plugshare - Brady's Market, Inyokern, CA - One ChargePoint Express 250 charger, apparently set to 50kW output, plus an L2 station.

Plugshare - Mojave Denny's - Four ChargePoint Express 250 chargers, apparently set to 50kW output, plus an L2 station.

Plugshare - Groveland Visitor's Center - Two 50kW Express 200 chargers and an L2 station.

ChargePoint only has 5 more sites to open that were originally identified in CEC documents. 64 sites are operational.
Leggett, Healdsburg, Soda Springs, Kramer Junction, and Zzyzx (between Yermo and Baker on I-15).

EV Connect:
Plugshare - Arco AM/PM King City, CA - One 150kW charger. No pictures, no checkins.

Electrify America:
Plugshare - City of Needles Charging Depot - One 350kW and Three 150kW stalls with one CHAdeMO connector on one of the 150kW stalls.

Looks like the Caltrans sites along I-15 on the way to Las Vegas are both open

CV Kane rest area
https://www.plugshare.com/location/252481

Valley Wells rest area
https://www.plugshare.com/location/268877

The two Caltrans sites along 395 between Mojave and Bishop are very close: Coso Junction and Division Creek. Chargers installed, but not powered up. Heading up to Mammoth later this week, I'll check them out if I can.

The CalTrans site at the Boron Rest Area Westbound on CA-58 between Kramer Junction and Edwards also appears to be open.

Plugshare - Boron Rest Area West Bound - One 50kW DCFC

ChargePoint has also opened a site on the north side of Victorville, CA that was not identified in CEC documents. It is operated by the same entity that operates the CEC funded ChargePoint sites. This is actually not a new site, I've just never noticed it before. It appears to have been open since June 2020. Of all the DCFC sites in the Hesperia - Victorville area, this one is the closest to Barstow.

Plugshare - Motel 6 Victorville - One 50kW DCFC and a L2 station

The charger at the Arco in King City now has a picture on Plugshare and Offline status. It's a Freewire charger.

A couple along 395 are now marked active on on Plugshare

Coso Junction rest stop. This adds to an EA site already there : https://www.plugshare.com/location/305136

Bishop. They also have an EA site a few blocks away : https://www.plugshare.com/location/230127

I also have a sneaking suspicion Division Creek rest stop is live or soon to be live. It was being built out at the same time as Coso, just needed to be powered up: https://www.plugshare.com/location/230126

Also looks like the Mojave Chargepoints are live : https://www.plugshare.com/location/288895

Thanks for keeping us up to date @miimura and @geo.

Man, it's a different world from when we all started getting our JdeMOs 5 years ago.
So nice to see all the options that enable long-distance EV travel.

I love both maps and EVs, so staring at Plugshare is actually fun for me.

It's amazing how quickly the public charging network is taking off. I did LA to Vegas 18 months ago and it was a challenge to get the RAV4 from from Baker to the next fast charger in Victorville. Today, there's almost a dozen fast chargers along that same stretch.
