Funding has been approved. Construction "could" begin this summer. No timetable for completion.

Guy (GRA) has posted

"EA is building a QC site at the Von's in Bishop. It's a bit far (0.6 miles) in typical Bishop summer temps to walk to Schat's Bakery or the White Mtn. Ranger District office, but it should make trips up the east side a lot easier. Other EA QCs are being built in Bakersfield, Barstow and Hesperia, so access to 395 from teh south should be much improved, although at least a couple more ON 395 are needed."

Here is the latest version of the Electrify America Cycle 1 map. It is a corrected version of a map that was first released in late January of 2019.

Thanks Jeff. I saw that on your web site. I can't seem to find the map on EA's own site. Where do they hide it?

From that map it looks like they still plan a site near Tehachapi and Olancha. No reports on progress, if any, at the Bishop site.

It’s linked as a resource on the January 28, 2019 press release at:

https://www.electrifyamerica.com/news-updates

When it was first posted it on January 28 it had multiple errors. I pointed them out and they removed it. Then they fixed it and relinked it a couple of weeks ago and then it somehow was unlinked again. It’s back now (I think). They are in the midst of making bigger changes to the website and it may have gotten lost in the shuffle earlier.

Jeff, Guy, et al,

Geo is reporting Coso Junction and Bishop EA stations under construction with Coso quite well along.

Denny's Tehachapi ChargePoint DCFC Activity--Finally

Denny's on Hwy 58 in Tehachapi has been slated for a ChargePoint DCFC station for some time. As of two weeks ago there was no sign of activity. Today there was a chain-link fence closing off a portion of the parking lot nearest Magellan Drive. A port-a-potty had also been dropped off.

The ChargePoint station in Tehachapi is part of the CEC's GFO-15-603 for Interregional Corridors.

As of one week ago there was no sign of activity at the Denny's in Mojave or the nearby Best Western. This location is slated for an EV Connect station as part of the same CEC program.

There was no activity on the proposed ChargePoint station at the Comanche Road Shell and Hwy 58 near Bakersfield.

ChargePoint also has a proposed station at Robber's Roost in Inyokern on Hwy 14 as well.

CalTrans' DCFC Stations on the East Side Not Yet Out to Bid--EA's Under Construction

While funding for CalTrans' District 9 DC Fast Charge stations under the state's 30-30 program has been approved, the stations have yet to go out for bid. Bids likely will be released in July 2019 with construction to begin in the fall. CalTrans' objective is to have the stations in the ground by the end of the year. However, it is more likely that they won't be in service until the first quarter of 2020.

District 9 encompasses US Hwy 395 on the East Side of California's Sierra Nevada. The highway serves heavy summer recreational traffic to national forests and Yosemite National Park. It also serves heavy winter traffic to the ski resort of Mammoth Mountain north of Bishop, California.

CalTrans planned DCFC stations at the Coso Junction and Division Creek rest areas and the district office in Bishop.

There are currently no non-Tesla DCFC stations on the East Side.

There are J1772 and Tesla destination charge stations in Mammoth at the resort's hotels.

Meanwhile Electrify America has stations under construction at Coso Junction and in Bishop. The Eastern Sierra Electric Vehicle Association's Don Condon is also reporting EA equipment on the ground in Bridgeport. According to photos on PlugShare, the Coso Junction station is quite advanced with EA's kiosks in the ground. It's likely that EA will have its stations operational before those of CalTrans.

In addition, ChargePoint has a station planned for Robber's Roost on Hwy 14 in Inyokern as part of the CEC's GFO-15-603 for Interregional Corridors. As part of the same program EV Connect has stations planned for Mojave and Inyokern. As of two weeks ago there was no sign of activity in Mojave.

These stations are necessary to make non-Tesla EV travel on US 395 and the East Side possible.
