Nissan Wants to Triple the Number of US Fast-charging Stations

I live close to Silucon Valley, but not in it. Many people from my area commute there on a daily base (approximately 55,000) over a winding mountain highway. There are people making the commute with Nissan leafs (not leaves I think), Chevy Volts, the osccasional Tesla Model S, and many hybrids. ( In my town alone there are over 30 Leaf, 10 Volts, and a few Model S cats. In Silicon Valley the numbers are of course much larger). Having a few fast charge stations along the commute route would be more of a peace of mind gesture or only for emergencies. The issue would be availability, there would need to be at least 20 fast chargers at the mid way point, and I’m not sure if our local 50 year old grid could manage that.
