Hey just wanted to make a clear forum one where some rumored superchargers are being set up!
Please add source!
DO NOT ADD WHERE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE ONE
I spoke to a gentleman yesterday who is in the business of installing solar panel arrays for large projects. He was involved with a large project at FL Gulfcoast University in Estero, FL and has a project contracted with FPL, the big power company in FL.
He told me that he has been talking to Tesla about installing a solar powered supercharger at Alico Rd. exit on I-75 in SW Florida, near the Gulfcoast Town Center shopping mall. He said Tesla wants well lit sites so someone traveling alone late at nite will feel safe stopping at the supercharger.
I was at the Costa Mesa service center yesterday. The technician mentioned that a supercharger will be installed nearby.
This was posted in the Washington forum, but there apparently is a supercharger going in at Burlington, WA, about halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C.
Good for Canadians going into the U.S. or us going up to B.C., but I need something going down into and through Oregon.
Here's one supposedly found in Centralia:
And one in Ft. Myers, Florida:
That seems to be the next round of super chargers. 5/16 application wouldn't sugest this weekd announcement.
I had heard about one in Carlsbad.
The Outlet Shopping center just off the 5 would be the most logical.
OC sounds logical too.
Who really knows?
The one in Centralia is pretty solid: the state L&I electrical permit lists Tesla as the owner.
Here's another one - Darien, CT, just outside Stamford, CT:
San Juan Capistrano
3 on the 101 between LA and SF
Triple would be enough for coast to coast,
"By the end of the year, the network will cover most metro areas in the U.S. and Southern Canada, Musk said."
"By the end of next month, we're going to triple the supercharger coverage area."
If there are eight or nine supercharger plazas now, I don't think that means there will be 24-27 by the end of June. But there will be additional swaths of the country that are covered, probably the Pacific Northwest, parts of the Midwest, Florida, Texas? Just my surmise.
Triple the coverage area would not. Starting from the small current base, it might extend down the East Coast to Florida, on the west up to Vancouver and/or maybe to Texas.
That by the end of June would be dramatic.
I got the impression that he was saying that by July you could drive (one route) NY to LA, and he certainly implied 24 chargers, which could in theory support coast to coast, but if you take out the 4 California ones that wouldn't be involved in coast to coast, and believe that WA and TX are each getting a few, the math fails...
Coverage area and # of chargers are far from equivalent expressions, and LA-NY is an eventual consequence, not an immediate target.
You can't get to heaven on roller skates!
I've said this elsewhere, but i'll say it again here...I have a feelingly that the New Jersey Supercharger will be located in a deliciously ironic location...Let's see what happens after the announcement is made :)
White Castle? Harold? Kumar?
Hehe :) While some might agree that White Castle is delicious (I would not be one of them), it isn't ironic...
I have seen the plans and letter of Approval from Lee County, FL for 8 charger bays and 4 superchargers in San Carlos FL at Gulf Coast Center(exit 128 on I-75)Ft Myers, issued 5/23.
I spoke to someone at tesla showroom and they said that they are planning somewhere in DC.
How about a drive-up restaraunt like Sonic, but a little more classy with better food? Pull up, charge up, fill up, GTFO.
And roller skates are always a nice touch.
This Model S owner upgraded to Firmware 4.5 and this morning posted a photo of a cross country row of Supercharger locations on his touchscreen map!
CORRECTION - Those are actually markers of where he charged, NOT SUPERCHARGERS. SORRY FOLKS! MY MISTAKE!
Elon announced last night what Tesla is planning.
confirmed Centralia Washington ( between Seattle and Portland)
and Burlington ( between Seattle and Canadian Border)
Some creative folks checked the municipal permitting agencies and found electrical permits made for Tesla! Smart!
Looks like some construction is gearing up, maybe by late June we can enjoy a few road trips. Thank you Elon
This thread is now officially dead as official current and future locations can now be found on the Supercharger page!
Not quite - the maps posted are still low resolution. For instance, tell me where the extra supercharger is between Las Angeles and San Diego. Can't tell from the page.
Ft. Meyers, Florida super charger is at the mall, in a great location for Tampa <> Miami Traffic. google it, you can see the permit.
Port St. Lucie Florida near another mall, off 95 and PSL blvd.: http://cityofpsl.com/city-council/news-stories/2013/tesla-motors-to-open...
The summer NW florida location looks like Daytona, nice for I-4 and I-95, and a nice view for the NASCAR fans.
Imagine the impact of all these MSes bopping all over the map, showing their stuff to the masses who've never heard of them. Awesome.
