Just curious......the Superchargers that are to be constructed by the end of the year.....have these started to be built yet?
Check www.supercharge.info. Its data comes from users, so it isn't official Tesla data. It shows new permits, under construction and operational superchargers.
Awesome. Thanks for this.
Here are three new ones in the US, obtained from the "changes" tab.

In many cases, the expansion is at existing sites and adding more chargers. I have seen this new construction in Rocklin and Harris Ranch. Rocklin is cool as it is powered by solar and Powerpacks. I hope the addition has begun in Burbank. @Lilbean?
No hope for Burbank - the city refuses to allow Tesla to expand its Superchargers there.
For those in the know - Burbank only has 6 Supercharger stalls and it is in a good location that keeps it quite busy.
Is that 'Beautiful Downtown Burbank'?
@reed_lewis - Indeed it is. Do you know the reference from laugh-in?
@TeslaTap.com Bummer. It is listed on the supercharger map as slated for expansion. Any news on the Pasadena new location? That might help spread the demand.
"No hope for Burbank"
Full sentence. Stop. ;-)
When Burbank opened, it was the only one that was directly off I5 in that area, and somebody coming from further south would have to take a different route to get to somewhere like Culver City and deal with the 405 traffic and going out of the way, which could cost a lot of time. Then Fountain Valley opened up, so if you are off I5 further down in the LA area, it wasn't too much of a detour. If you were in a place like Disneyland, a detour of about 18 minutes would get you there. Then Burbank opened and it's directly on I5 but has too few chargers.
More recently the Santa Ana supercharger opened, and it's right off I5. Then Buena Park opened up, so you can go very slightly further up i5 and not have to go out of your way. That makes it easy to stay on I5, not have to worry about stopping at Burbank, and the total number of chargers in that area is far greater.
All this assumes current numbers of cars, and with the Model 3 there might be a higher percentage of drivers who rely on supercharging for day to day use.
@TT, why is Burbank being a bish???
I believe the Chicago, IL -Lakeshore East Supercharger will be in Aqua Tower at 225 N. Columbus Dr. with 5 Superchargers totaling 10 charging posts.
@zanegler - Of course I know the reference. Gary Owens at his best.
Two WY superchargers on I80 started construction last week. I suspect there are two more off the radar.
Right on cue--Rawlings WY had a permit show up today.
And pretty soon there will be two Teslas in WY. 😀
If I visit my uncle put there, would that count as a second tesla in WY?
Permit for Truth or Consequences, NM as of today! That will be another important gap filled across the southern tier. Of course, the last 2 or 3 connecting from El Paso through to Arizona are still being awaited breathlessly, but it seems almost too hot for those right now.
New one under construction top of parking structure in Burbank California. Just found today
Supercharge.info. 20 stalls
That's the largest station in the United States. So far.
I have put in a request for a station in the Montague/Whitehall Michigan area. The map that links from this page (above) does not show Grand Rapids, but other maps show GR has more than one. The next closest is in Ludington, which you Michiganians know is quite a distance from GR. If you agree with me, please send Tesla a note. re adding a Super Charging station in W/M area. It is very touristy there, but I'd hate to see only Destination chargers available. Some of us have homes and other family there.
The proper (if somewhat ridiculous) term is "Michiganders". My wife is one.
Stoped by Sequim WA yesterday. Site appears to be finished and open for business. Come visit the Olympic Peninsula.
Tesla is not messing around!
Hey Bighorn; Do you live in the Wyoming area? I'm going to make a trip in mid August from Bay area to Columbus Ohio (MX-75D), and EVTrip Planner is sending me out of Salt Lake south to I-70 into Denver and up to I-80 to Toledo, then south into Columbus. It would be shorter if the SCs between Salt Lake and Sidney (via I-80 ) were done by then. My trip last year from Bay to Cleveland (MS-P85) kept me on the more southern route using I-70 all the way. Your thoughts........MHB
Warm Greetings to everyone!!
I am new to this forum and unfamiliar with the topic of discussion. Actually, I am planning to start my own construction business. For that purposes, I am doing research on the internet. While checking your forum, I found your decision very useful and new to me. I would like to request to explain this topic to me in just few lines so that I can get the idea about the topic and can enhance my knowledge.
Also, I want to share my experience of doing research for the construction. I found a very good website on the internet related to the construction of roads and driveways. Check http://highqualityasphalt.com.au/ .... May it prove to be helpful to all of you!!
Rumor has it that the third Tesla in WY will be owned by Dick Cheney. He'll immediately put a bumper sticker on it saying, "Powered By Coal".
