    Average wall charger install call (Midwest)

    It seems high, but not crazy high (for Chicago suburb for instance). Every installation is different, how complex is it to reach the panel, is it going outside and back in garage… That’s why in my case I said ‘Put a 14-50 outlet here’ meaning no installation of charger, no mention of Tesla or...

    Supercharger - Dwight IL

    In V3, one cabinet drives 4 pedestals (chargers) so it would probably be an 8-charger location (most common these days as mentioned).

    Supercharger - Chicago, IL - N Elston Ave

    I drove around the Target parking the other day but I didn’t see anything yet. There‘s construction inside the parking structure but no obvious Tesla signs.

    Supercharger - Chicago, IL - N Elston Ave

    At Target, interesting. I thought it would be at the Mariano’s down the street when I saw the dot on Tesla’s map. Target has a much bigger lot there, so it should be more convenient.

    Supercharger - Gilman, IL

    Half way between Chicago and Urbana, it should be useful.

    Supercharger - Bolingbrook, IL

    Yes, charged there tonight. The thinner cables are easier to handle in the cold.

    Still the same status last night. Similar in Rolling Meadows, concrete work done but no electrical setup.

    Supercharger - Chicago, IL - O’Hare International Airport

    The new parking structure F has a fair amount of L2 chargers and "priority ev" preferred parking spots, and it's covered (except the top level). Convenient for short trips, and same parking fees (I think $17 a day).

    EV plates (Illinois)

    I just went to the site last week and ordered my renewal.

    Illinois Tollway doesn’t recognize EL plate

    There are around 5M cars in IL and around 15,000 EL plates. This is not about money, and I’m all about paying my share of the infrastructure. The state got ~ $100M from the Diesel settlement. What did they do to improve EV and green transportation in general?
