Tesla placed the "Savannah" SC at the Savannah Airport which is actually closer to Pooler, a booming town outside of Savannah right off of I-95. In fact, the area right off of the I-95 exit that the charger is at (2 miles or so to the airport) has gone nuts. There has been a Home Depot, Walmart, Sams Club, and a few restaurants (Chic-Fil-A, Arby's, Longhorn) for several years, but a couple of years ago they announced they were building one of (if not THE) biggest shopping outlet in the Southeast at that exit. Since then, it has just gone nuts there. Almost every restaurant chain has opened now. Several shopping centers have popped up with stores like TJ Maxx and Ross. There is also a World Of Beer location (my personal favorite :). I mean, the area is full of just about every type of restaurant you can imagine, including some good local ones. All in a 1/2 mile area, all on the same side of the interstate.
But, WHERE does Tesla put the SC? At the freaking airport where a) it is cumbersome to get into and out of, b) there are limited choices on where to eat, c) it's a pretty long walk from the back of the parking garage where the chargers are at to the airport lobby where there are BRs and food, and d) absolutely ZERO exposure for Tesla. This area (South Ga) basically has no Teslas. Most people here have never even seen one. To them, it's some "California" car for the Hollywood elite (if they've even heard of Tesla). If the SC station were right in the middle of all this mega "happening" area, it would be MUCH more convenient for owners, and TONS of people would see the charging station, the cars driving to them, and the cars charging at them. I don't know what kind of deal Tesla got at the airport, but the only way it was worth it was if it was free (and I seriously doubt that).
Someone needs to recommend to Tesla that they put an additional charging station near this mega shopping area. It would be WELL worth the $250k.
