I took a trip from NC to Boston and back between Friday and yesterday, and the South Hill VA Supercharger opened officially just about the time I left. (It had not yet appeared on the list of Superchargers on the map in the MS.) On the way back, yesterday, I stopped at it. It is located in the parking lot of Kahill's Restaurant, on US 1, in South Hill. This is the first one I've seen that is not in a shopping center or mall, or in a service center like those in Connecticut. It is just in the parking lot of a restaurant. The restaurant manager said they'd had at least 9 MSs stop by and charge. She said that Tesla approached them about putting the Superchargers there. I thanked her and the owners for giving Tesla the green light.
I would like those of you who travel past it to be sure to eat lunch or dinner there, and thank them for putting the Superchargers. I hope it turns out to bring them some new customers for giving Tesla permission to put them in.
