Supercharger Locations (existing/planned) - CONFIRMED - not rumored or speculated…

My intention with this thread to is offer confirmed (evidence based) information on existing and new supercharger locations. There are plenty of other threads offering speculation…

update - Dec. 19th, 2013
lots has changed since this post was originally started - I recommend looking at any of the other excellent posts that have taken up this quest…

this thread however should still be dedicated to factual tracking of potential/newly functional SC sites…

permit status on the web site says "under review" - so this isn't quite a done deal yet - and if it's still under review - I would be surprised if it was completed by end of June.

dortor | 01. Juni 2013

this is the site you can use to search for yourself.

dortor | 01. Juni 2013

from looking at the photos I'm hoping they put the chargers at the more southern end of the vast parking lot - better for walking to other places - things nearby in order of distance

Carl's Jr
Burger King
Andersen's Pea Soup

other than the first two items - it's quite the walk from the charger's to anywhere…but it is super close to 101 - so get off - charge - leave…

Anderson's is awesome!

anyone knows the confirmed location in San Diego? I also hear there is one in Oxnard?

shop | 01. Juni 2013

Sorry for the speculation on this thread, but if you take the low res map of future locations as gospel and blow it up, the only new SC near San Diego for the SD-LA corridor is in Dana Point, which is actually southern OC. I haven't heard any other definitive information about SC locations in SD.

Mike C | 01. Juni 2013

I've previously reported that I heard from a worker at a Supercharger station a couple weeks ago that they would be working in San Juan Capistrano, Oxnard, Buellton, Atascadero, but no exact locations. Lloyd from TMC reported there will be one at Paso Robles Inn.

Town Center at St. Lucie West in Florida:

@dortor - you can update the original post by clicking Edit. Can you add the confirmed locations to the original post?

Thx! Nick...

DouglasR | 01. Juni 2013

Centralia Washington. Go to this page,

and put "Tesla" in the Property Owner Business Name box.

Also, very good evidence that superchargers will soon be installed in Burlington Washington. People have spoken to the contractor.

Another one planned for Woodburn Oregon, even though the dot on the map looks like Salem. Again, people have reported speaking to the contractor, who is building all three. Woodburn will probably be ready in the fall.

nick, dortor;
Edit is available to OP -- when hovering pointer over the Tesla logo. (Crucial 1st step!)

nickjhowe | 01. Juni 2013

@Brian - hence the reason I asked dortor to update the OP, three posts above yours.

Brian H | 01. Juni 2013

My point is that finding "Edit" is non-trivial. Unless you know to hover over the logo; how many people do that even by accident? It's a "Crucial 1st step", as I pointed out.

DouglasR | 02. Juni 2013

On my browser, the edit is in the upper left corner; hovering over the logo does nothing.

Woodbury, Oregon is mostly known these days as ...the biggest factory outlet setting in Oregon, as I recall?

dortor | 02. Juni 2013

updated original post…now includes an overall map…

james babb | 02. Juni 2013

Normal Illinois, in the Uptown center parking garage. Confirmed by city council minutes.

stevenmaifert | 02. Juni 2013

@james babb - Everything in the report looked good until "5. Tesla drivers will pay regular parking deck fees." Pay to park for free to charge wouldn't inspire me to stop there unless I was desperately low on juice.

DouglasR | 02. Juni 2013

Paying for 20 or 30 minutes parking wouldn't deter me. However, the setup certainly looks different from other supercharger stations: only two dedicated stalls, inside a parking structure, etc.

@stevenmaifert According to the web site for the parking garage - the first hour is free, then $1 per hour

Also in the City Council minutes was some talk of reimbursing Tesla owners for the parking fees.

The initial setup is 2 superchargers wired to 4 spaces, but Tesla can expand if usage demands it. The lease is for 5 years, with two options to extend for 5 years at a time.

dortor | 02. Juni 2013

if you click on the map link I have in the original posting "heading" of this thread - you will see I have both existing and confirmed planned SC's on the map.

Brian H | 03. Juni 2013

Only the OP can see the edit. It used to require hovering but they've changed it.

james babb | 05. Juni 2013

It would be nice if people could confirm when each location gets upgraded to 120 kW capacity, and if all the ports are upgraded or just some.

Fredhmartin | 08. Juni 2013

Anyone know yet where the Orange County CA supercharger is going to be?

Rumors are San Juan Cap or Dana Point or San Clemente. I'm surprised no one has spotted construction yet or permits thru online lookup. According to the TM SC map, it's supposed to come online this summer.

dortor | 08. Juni 2013

bump - map is still up to date - anyone found anymore confirmed locations?

WormtownKris | 16. Juni 2013

Per Diarmuid O'Connell in a Boston Globe interview, Sturbridge, MA on the Mass Pike is a forthcoming location.

"How long does it take to charge?

It really depends. If you’re using your household circuit it takes several hours. If you use one of our superchargers, which we’re installing on major interstates and arteries — we’ll be doing one here on I-90 in Sturbridge — you can recover 150 miles in 30 minutes or less."

Makes sense in that Sturbridge is about 70 miles or so west of Boston. Not sure exactly where in Sturbridge- there is an eastbound service center/rest stop in Charlton about two miles east of Sturbridge. I thought the rest area would make sense- as there is an entrance off Rte 20 as well-, but it would not be available for westbound travelers. In Sturbridge the exit leads to I-84 and Rte 20, so it is a hub of sorts, but there is no obvious spot directly off the highway.
Maybe some scouts in the area can do more digging?

dortor | 16. Juni 2013

added sturbridge i-90 location - I picked a "likely" location at a mall near the 84 & i-90 interchange - I welcome a more confirmed location.

dortor | 19. Juni 2013

updated with latest information on Burlington SC location.

dortor | 19. Juni 2013

Darien, CT Location Added - still need more precise location information - I've placed the "pin" at my best guess for a north bound service exist location.

evpro | 19. Juni 2013

What to do with all that wasted space at each exit/entry Interstate cloverleaf? Install solar panels and connect to the nearby Supercharger?

nickjhowe | 24. Juni 2013

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CBL & Associates Properties Inc. (NYSE: CBL) today announced the launch of a partnership with Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) to install Tesla Supercharging stations at several CBL Malls across the country. Tesla is building a network of Supercharging stations that will eventually enable Tesla owners to drive coast to coast in their electric vehicles. The initial cooperation will place Tesla Superchargers at five CBL Malls to include Gulf Coast Town Center in Fort Myers, FL; The Pavilion at Port Orange in Port Orange, FL; Alamance Crossing in Burlington, NC; CherryVale Mall in Rockford, IL and Imperial Valley in El Centro, CA.

working to update the map now…

dortor | 24. Juni 2013

map updated!

dortor | 24. Juni 2013

hmmm - this is fun - thanks for the info everyone - some of the location "match" grey dots on the official Tesla Map - and some don't - but I take this as a good sign - in that Tesla is just plopping down SC's where ever they can get them and think they are useful…

based on the data set so far I would therefore treat the Tesla map as "aspirational" rather than "planned" - and we'll see SC's where we see them as fast as Tesla can roll them out…

dortor | 24. Juni 2013

I also note we now have the "complete" view of the 3 Florida SC's…

dortor | 24. Juni 2013

latest URL for those of you too lazy to scroll to the top of the thread…

RZitrin1 | 24. Juni 2013

dortor, your map for Harris Ranch has the original single charger and then you say "6 Chargers - 4 reserved spots - 2 non-reserved spots." Is this the new station? And what do you mean by reserved? I thought I'd just read that there are no reservations that can be made.

Thanks, and hope this doesn't sound like too stupid a question.

sia | 24. Juni 2013

On Plugshare, someone has posted a picture of 8 superchargers, being installed at Rabobank Atascadero, CA:

dortor | 24. Juni 2013

@ rzitrin - 4 spots are the normal tesla charging spots designated for exclusive parking with a tesla - the other 2 spots (6 total) are spots that may be occupied by other cars - and the chargers are in different spots than normal - the 2 spots have the chargers at the "front" of the parking spot - not beside the car - and they are not exclusively reserved for Tesla's…

@sla - I'll work to update the MAP ASAP

Mike C | 24. Juni 2013

@dortor, I reported a month ago on TMC that I spoke with a contractor at Harris Ranch who confirmed they would be doing San Juan Capistrano, Oxnard, Buellton, and Atascadero. Now that Buellton and Atascadero are confirmed I am highly confident the other two are correct as well.

dortor | 24. Juni 2013

We need a location for San Juan and Oxnard - both areas are pretty large - but this is getting exciting…

with just the Atascadero and Buellton locations you can get down 101 to Hawthron

Gilroy -> Atascadero - 148 miles
Atascadero -> Buellton - 90'ish miles
Buellton -> Hawthorn - 142 miles

that means you can get to the LAX area from the Bay area by 101 or I-5…

I'm very excited.

RZitrin1 | 24. Juni 2013

Thanks, dortor. Great service! Glad you're finding it fun.

Tom | 24. Juni 2013

A possible Supercharger in Paso Robles!!! Right in the heart of wine country!! Woo hoo!

dortor | 24. Juni 2013

Paso Robles is probably not getting one given the Atascadero SC - but the Atascadero SC makes Paso Robles possible from South or North - and there is the excellent Oak's Hotel in Paso Robles with overnight chargers for their guests!

Tom | 24. Juni 2013

Atascadero is great as well! We travel from Grass Valley to San Luis Obispo frequently. We can Supercharge in Gilroy and still make it to SLO! This is all so awesome! We take delivery of our Tesla this Thursday at the factory!!!
