There was an article in the Sunday Denver Post showing a photo of the Circle R Motel in Salida, CO and their charging station offered to guests. No mention of Rivian’s unit, but I thought it was pretty cool. Funny how Salida is getting loads of attention…..

Here's a pic from TripAdvisor showing the sign fully lit.

Wow! If one plugged-in Nissan Leaf can suck almost all of the juice out of that motel sign, a pair of Rivians bellied-up to the electron trough at the same time may just kill the lights and "Electric Fingers" inside the rooms! 😉 🙌

Just stopped by. They have four ClipperCreek chargers installed, but not the Rivian chargers yet.

So is this site shared by someone other than Rivian? They are saving money by putting in these L2 chargers instead of the Rivian ones?

Not quite sure what you're getting at. The L2 chargers will be open for public use. The Rivian DCFCs will initially be reserved for Rivians. There's no good reason for the L2 chargers to carry Rivian's brand and could potentially lead to some confusion (which are reserved vs public) if they did.

But Rivian has their own L2 chargers, don't they?

Yes, including the ones we will be able to purchase for home installation.

Perhaps the model you pictured hasn't started production yet. Perhaps they want to make it clear which are public vs Rivian use. Perhaps they want to leverage an initially limited supply of Rivian branded chargers in locations that won't have a Rivian branded DCFC sitting adjacent. Who knows? Who cares? A J1772 L2 charger is a J1772 L2 charger.

Not shared. They are installed by Rivian. The city made them install L2 chargers for general use. Why aren’t they Rivian branded? No clue.

So the city had them put in the L2? That makes sense then if its for cost cutting.

Unfortunate that we can't see the Rivian Waypoint in the wild but thats ok

Way cool!
Can't wait to see "THE LOGO" in public
Hope they get to put up a sign saying sponsored by Rivian

Update from today:

I think the level 2 chargers are installed but they are currently boxed off. The parking lot is paved and lines painted including for the drive-trough charger.

Why didn't they just put some waypoint chargers instead of the generic things? They are open to all.
