Stopped at the Raleigh supercharger yesterday, 1/13/19. There was 1 stall available out of 12, so I was fortunate to squeeze in just in time. I arrived at 1:30ish and left at 3:00PM. When I left, there were two stalls open and available. From the time I was charging, it remained pretty much full. I was extremely surprised since it was on a Sunday, and the weather was cold and raining. Not the best day to be out at a shopping mall or strip. There was a very even 33/33/33 % fill among Tesla Models. This supercharger is normally pretty full, but on this day I was not expecting it to be like that.
This is unacceptable. If another charger isn't installed somewhere quickly, having to wait to charge you car will become the norm in Raleigh. It is completely unacceptable and I hope Tesla see's the data that the Raleigh supercharger is staying full.
Not seeing another Raleigh Supercharger this year concerns me. I highly doubt the one going up in Durham will alleviate the strain. Tesla really needs to 10x the current capacity. If there are currently 3k in the usa, going to 10,000 or a 3x increase will cost 1.4 billion dollars. I don't see that as being unreachable.
What are you all experiencing thus far?
