That would be awesome and really is the only logical spot East of the mountains to catch both 90 and 82 travellers. Now I just need to convince the CFO an X should be our next vehicular purchase.

Sidenote: Hopefully bonnie or one of the "knows some insiders" forum folks can chime in -- is there a mailing list or somesuch we can join that will send out notifications when new superchargers are installed? I'll definitely be visiting Centralia (and Ellensburg) when (if) they get a supercharger.

VIN 03278 delivered 1/17/13. P85, Black, Black leather, 21" greys, carbon trim, sound, tech, pano, jump seats. Pure awesome.
I hope the 3rd location is north of Seattle on the way to Vancouver. Here are the approximate distances:
1. Seattle to Bellingham: 90 miles
2. Seattle to Ellensburg: 100 miles
3. Seattle to Centralia: 90 miles
These locations seem pretty good for all the major destinations as shown below. Although Spokane is a bit far away and Pullman is definitely too far from Ellensburg
I signed up for ChargePoint and Blink; these are the two mostly in Texas.

So I stopped in Centralia today and did a walk around the Starbucks/Safeway parking lot. Sorry to say that I did not find evidence of construction anywhere. Just eyeballing the property, I suspect the superchargers would most likely be located between the Safeway and it's gas station (seems most logical). I hope this lack of activity means that installation is super quick and easy.
Great map Francis. I have been over this quite a few times as well. They may need to add one in the Tri-Cities or Umatilla, Hermiston or Pendleton to cover SW Washington and NW Oregon better. Maybe one in Moses Lake or Ritzville (would cover 395 up from the Tri-Cities too) for travel along 90. Ritzville would cover the trip to Pullman nicely too.
They're also going to need one East of Portland on 84. The Dalles or maybe Biggs Junction are about halfway between Portland and Pendleton.
Are there any discussions about Oregon placements? I'd love to be able to get to Bend!
