Looks like Tesla is building a 56 stall supercharger with 38 pull thru stalls for towing. As well there will be 9 stalls for non Tesla DC fast charging. CCS and Chademo???  There will also be a restaurant, a convenience store and lounge. This is supposedly a V3 supercharger meaning it will be primarily V3 at 250 KW per stall.

Did a little digging on TMC. Firebaugh wasnít chosen as it is halfway between Sacramento and LA. There are already to Superchargers within 50 miles in either direction on I5. Kettleman and Harris Ranch. Both of those are also quite big. Kettleman is primarily V2 though so max 150 KW. Firebaugh is apparently going to incorporate existing businesses and restaurants so it is more like a European style rest stop.

On long weekends Kettleman and Harris Ranch can get quite congested. This should help with that as it will be a V3 stop. There are a ton of Teslaís commuting between LA, Sacramento and Frisco. And more everyday. This will help with those as well as non Tesla EVís as they will have 9 non Tesla fast charge points as well.
