Shades of Thanksgiving weekend appeared at the Cabazon Supercharger location on Monday evening. There were 15 charging stalls available for use (one being out of service). I pulled in for a quick topping off before heading back home. All 15 stalls were in use with another 12 vehicles in line waiting for their turn. I decided against the top off and made it home with 10%
The most likely reason for the heavy traffic is the BNP Paribas tennis tournament at Indian Wells. The Supercharger location in Indio was similarly busy according to the map, but I don't know whether there was as much of a line. Cabazon is the largest location between the desert and all points in Southern California, so it is the most logical spot to recharge. I guess it's just another indication that EV adoption by the masses cannot afford to happen too quickly; we still need infrastructure improvements such as V3 before expecting the EV revolution to be successful.
