Thanks, SparkE! Keep hope alive! I'm looking at the sites north of Sacramento to the Oregon border and this brings a lot of relief. Hope this happens soon!

In this (longwinded) post I listed the master planning document that map is based on, if someone wants the details.

For now that's a wish list waiting for various funding sources to emerge.
No. Read the cited document. From your (other) post:

I went looking for a description of this project. This seems to be the latest: a document titled

Caltrans 30-30 ZEV Implementation Program appended to this December 2017 planning document:

http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/transprog/ctcliaison/2017/1217/superbook/49_4.20_Combined4Linking.pdf
This is Caltran's (California Department of Transportation) plan - not the CEC's plan (California Energy Commission). The two are different.

Page 2 says : This “30-30” plan will implement 34 DCFCs for public use by November
2018, with the remaining 3 DCFCs in construction by March 2019.

Last year I had found a list of all the stations that had been selected by the CEC, separated by zone and route. I can't find it now.

In the inner city of Baltimore, those copper wires would not last one week. Our Church had copper downspouts and they were cut off the building and stolen. Maybe inner city SF is having implementation reconsideration.

Do we have anything similar in Canada?

A whole constellation of DC Fast Chargers are being rolled out in the Kootenay region of BC (the southeast region). We've actually got a very decent infrastructure through the whole southern portion of the province now. There are only a few key points such as Hope, Merritt and Kamloops that are lacking CCS charging, and that's because they were rolled out early as CHAdeMO chargers and haven't yet been upgraded to include CCS capability. I've heard through the grapevine that those upgrades are supposed to take place this spring.

And there's supposed to be a project to install chargers along the Trans Canada Highway in Ontario and Manitoba. Not sure of the timeline, though.

If BC, Manitoba and Ontario get wired up, and if we get a fast charger in one or two of the cities between Calgary and Winnipeg, then I might just be tempted to do a cross-country road trip at some point...

Actually the West coast is pitiful, as far as DCFC is concerned.
The non-Tesla DCFC stations between California and Seattle are nearly all 25kW, so you will spend about as much time charging as driving.
Oregon and Washington have little to no EV infrastructure outside the two major cities.

Well, if one is travelling up to WA, you just need to stop in Portland (or environs) : LOTS of 50 kW chargers there. There are many in Seattle as well. Yes, driving from CA to Portland you will have to stop ONCE at a 60A (24 kW) charger.

Sure, they should put a dual-plug 100 kW unit around Eugene, and another pair around Ashland. Private party installations could probably charge beaucoup bucks at those stations. At any rate, anybody want to bet EVgo will have stations in/around Eugene, Salem, Medford before the end of the year?

Very interesting article. I wish it’d come to fruition soon. BC and QC are leading the EV market right now. I hope it spreads nationwide. I would love to adventure myself on a trans-Canada trip.

You are right. I read your thread title NEW (state subsidized) inter-city DCFCs and it was a near-match to the Caltrans document I had just read - which I think does include the data from the CEC map on its page 13.

CEC and Caltrans are distinct, separate providers of inter-city charging stations. It seems CT's effort is limited to filling gaps on principal routes by putting charging stations on State (nearly all are Caltrans) property.

I'm surprised the CT document doesn't describe close coordination between the two agencies. Our Tax Dollars At Work. :rolleyes:

Today I looked for a similar CEC plan/budget document, haven't found it yet. It's out there somewhere. I wish there were attribution on that Google map for their statement "Future Sites identified in CEC documents".

I found it last year - as well as interim docs that showed how they chose the sites. I couldn't find it again yesterday.
