    SuperCharger - Winnemucca NV

    Called the Planning office in Winnemucca and the Tesla Supercharger location has been approved.

    The location is on West Winnemucca Blvd, behind the Chevron station. Gotta love those city employees in small towns.

    I do love the Development office folks. It's rewarding to get a good relationship established.
    I really don't think they get out-of-state callers that much. Tesla projects can turn them into rock stars! Well, at least put them on a way bigger 'stage.'

    This is the only Chevron in Winnemucca. Is it the correct location?

    Chevron Winnemucca
    1927 West Winnemucca Boulevard
    Winnemucca, NV 89445

    I am sure that is the right address. When I talked to the planning office it was 10 to 5 and she was getting ready to leave for the night.

    She did say there was only one Chevron in town and everybody knows where its at. Just ask anyone.

    The Permit has been paid for but not picked up yet, so no construction has started at this time.

    I love the irony of this location (and Needles). Right next to an ICE refueling station! (And I couldn't help but notice that Boot Hill is adjacent to the charging location!)

    Almost as ironic as the station in Edison, NJ! I have to continue to admire Tesla and its owners' happenstance from afar...my financial outlook is bleak. One day, one day (hopefully).

    So if one wanted to get to from Northern Calif to Boise in an MS 85, which would be better (to veer off the SC route) - Winnemucca or Elko? Just don't want to go as far off course as Salt Lake City.

    Winnemucca to Boise is only 259 miles on US95. Find one good, friendly RV park along the way, with a 50A outlet for a little top up, and it should be an easy hop.

    Have fun!

    See my post at "I80 Nevada, Reno to West Wendover SuperChargers, Anything?". With Winnemucca found, the chain of Superchargers is known from the Bay Area to Salt Lake City.

    Now all they need to do is infill at Battle Mountain and Wells, both because those provide the best spacing for 60s from Truckee/Lovelock, and because anyone going to Yellowstone/Grand Teton from Northern California will take U.S. 93 at Wells instead of going out of the way to SLC. Battle Mountain also provides a link to U.S. 50 at Austin via a scenic route, for later. And let's get some SCs in the Burley/Heyburn area plus Pocatello, Idaho Falls and W. Yellowstone this year. Oh, and Brigham City (preferred) or Tremonton so the folks in SLC can also get there, plus Jackson and/or Moran Junction to cover the Tetons and the southern approach to Yellowstone.

    Model S/X are too big and too expensive for me. Waiting for a small AWD CUV (lose the Falcon Wing doors - some of us need to carry kayaks!) on the Model 3 platform.

    I sent an e-mail to the city building inspector before the original poster just picked up the phone and called. I got the following response today, indicating that construction may have begun:

    Tesla has plans approved and the permit has been issued to install a charging station consisting of 4 chargers. I believe the contractor was ready to begin work when he picked the permit up on January 20, 2015. The station will be located at 1955 W. Winnemucca Blvd. (behind the Chevron Station on property owned by the adjacent casino).
    Waiting for Model III... then no more ICE for me!
