As Tesla continues to expand its Supercharger network in the U.S., Canada, and beyond, a new permit shows plans to place a small new charging station in Southern California.

16 V3 Supercharger stalls are set to be established at a Chevron station in Santa Monica, California, according to a commercial building permit spotted by @MarcoRPTesla on Wednesday. The station is located at 1819 Cloverfield Boulevard, just off of Interstate 10.

According to one user, the Chevron station already includes a hydrogen refueling station as well as gas for traditional internal combustion engines (ICE), though this will be the lot’s first set of electric vehicle (EV) chargers.

The news comes just a few months after Santa Monica City Council gave the go-ahead for Tesla to begin constructing a 62-stall Supercharger. Prior to the approval, the council had paused the Supercharger project from proceeding through a zoning loophole.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk reported last week that Tesla Superchargers would be upgraded to 300kW charging speeds, though he didn’t specify exactly when the changes would happen.

In April, Tesla Supercharger Market Lead Justin Lange said all Tesla Superchargers would be run by renewable energy in 2021. Additionally, Tesla China went on to establish the world’s first solar-powered Supercharger station last month, complete with a solar overhang built above the chargers themselves.
