Seems like prior to 2015, rapid charging will be hard to find on the east coast. I contacted ChargePoint (which seems to be everywhere) and asked them if they currently have or plan to have any charging stations beyond the apparent maximum of 30 amps (TOO SLOW!!!) since with the Twin Chargers a Model S could handle up to 80A and this is the response I received:
"ChargePoint (the network) is open to all manufacturers of charging stations. While ChargePoint (the company) does not currently have plans to manufacture a charger that supports 80A charging, we are ready, willing and able to support any manufacturer that does. Currently Siemens, Leviton, Eaton, and Fuji manufacture ChargePoint compatible stations with another 5 manufacturers in development but not announced. We would love to add a manufacturer/station that supports 80A charging to that list. The best thing you can do as a driver is to contact manufacturers of 80A stations and encourage them to get on the ChargePoint network."
Does anyone know of a manufacturer that supports greater than 30A charging?? I want to take longer road trips with my Model S but don't want to wait hours for it to recharge!!
