Anyone know if Rivian has the same process as Tesla where you can apply to host a Supercharger station? Tesla has a whole website and application process to bring these in, but I haven't seen the same for Rivian. I'd like to get on the list to have a RAN station built in the Donnelly/McCall area of Idaho, whick presently has nothing. I think it would be a good draw for these resort communities which are presently a bit difficult to get into/out-of with an EV.

Thanks for any tips!

With the Tesla adapter coming next year, I wouldn't be surprised if Rivian cuts back on their initial charging goals. They are already super behind what they proposed a few years ago.

They've said the don't plan to. Realistically the SC network won't be the only network around, and Rivian sees a profit path with RAN.

Have you tried reaching out to Rivian directly yet?

I haven't, but only because I can't seem to get anyone to respond on their chat network or by phone. I have.a demo drive scheduled at the end of this week, so i guess I can wait until then to ask. Thanks all.

I wrote a note to my advisor and told her I had a location that was open to chargers being installed. She said she would forward it to them. I also wrote to Rivian and got a reply that they would also give it to the appropriate people. A chance, but not too optimistic of anything happening.

I have emailed and chatted with customer service previously regarding proposed sites.

2 years ago I emailed customer service about getting a RAN in Truckee. They said they would pass along the information. low and behold, they installed one of the first RAN there, though I am certain that it has nothing to do with my request.

I'm preoccupied, but search for something along the lines of Utah RAN/ Escalante here in the forums.

They seemed to have some traction/actual contacts to reference and reach out to

@Stretch: The RAN locations (about 600 across US and Canada) were decided almost three years ago, and while I'm sure these are subject to change Rivian has its hands full working towards this initial roadmap. McCall was not on that list.

But there is a DCFC charger currently being installed in McCall. PlugShare comments say the projected completion is December. You should check that out.

Just one in Canada would be a nice start...
