    All cabinets installed. You can see the transformer location still wrapped, so almost done!

    I will try to pop in this week, I'm only about 100 Km away.

    Supercharger - Enfield, NS

    You should be fine. There's plenty of level 2 around the province, several Tesla destination chargers. I don't remember the status of Model 3 and the CHAdeMO adapter but there are about a dozen DC spread around the province. Use Plugshare to find power, it is a rapidly changing situation with...

    Supercharger - Aulac, NB

    Nova Scotia Power is hosting their second "Electric Avenue" event in Halifax near their offices onLower Water St on September 8th from 11am-3pm. It might be a good idea to come and tell them what you think - there will certainly be NS Power people there, and specifically the ones involved with...

    Supercharger - Aulac, NB

    Just some information that you might find helpful. Truro CHAdeMO located at Turo Hampton Inn. This particular charger has had major issues but now seems to be running OK but at lower amperage Bridgewater New CHAdeMO now located in Best Western parking lot just off of exit 12 heading towards...

    Supercharger - Aulac, NB

    It seems obvious that this is likely Tesla holding back on supercharger construction in an effort to become profitable in Q3 to appease some Wall Street types. Not obvious at all and pure speculation. I have not seen any comments on this idea from Tesla or even any Analysts. I believe the fact...

    Supercharger - Aulac, NB

    And I am one of the people contributing to the crowdsourcing effort... nevertheless I am aware that there can be a great deal of work in advance of any clue appearing to share via crowdsource. All of the work finding appropriate sites, approaching the owners, and negotiating a lease, finding and...

    Supercharger - Aulac, NB

    I can't agree with you on this. We really don't know what Tesla is doing. Supercharger.info while great is gotten completely from voluntary contribution. Even with that 43 sites in progress is a huge amount of sites. Perhaps more importantly is what is gong on wth Destination Chargers, and don't...

    Supercharger - Aulac, NB

    I have done that trip with a 75D and I have to say the answer is no unless you are making special efforts, driving at very low speeds... the kind of things people do for competition. There are plenty of J1772 around as mentioned. Considering the new FLO CHAdeMO installations in both NB and NS...

    Nova Scotia Tesla Club Annual Meeting!!

    The fourth annual meeting of the Nova Scotia Tesla Club will take place on Sunday August 26 at noon. The location is the CHAdeMO charger in downtown Halifax on Barrington Street in the parking lot of the Atlantic Superstore. While the meetings in prior years have been on the South Shore, there...

    Supercharger - Aulac, NB

    Those of you in Atlantic Canada may not be aware that there is a Tesla Motors Club in Nova Scotia! While it is somewhat OT to publish this notice here... since we ALL are excited about the first Supercharger in Atlantic Canada, it does seem somewhat appropriate to let everyone who is enjoying...

    Supercharger - Aulac, NB

    I did ask that question and put the answer in the initial posting. The representative of the installation company said that as far as Nova Scotia is concerned (and they are doing Aulac as well) there has been a commitment to go ahead only at Aulac and Enfield. I was told that IF Tesla is happy...

    The vendor doing the installation is One Wind. My understanding is that they have a contract ONLY for Aulac and Enfield, the rest is all speculation (but fun anyhow)....

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    I don't think that Elon's tweet had anything to do with this. There are vendors that have been contracted and also contracts with the companies that own the parking lots and power utilities too in order to get the construction permitting process going. Somehow some big iron transformers need to...

    Yes, in Aulac at the Irving right next to the highway. Right near the NB power CHAdeMO charger. GREAT location.

    I believe that the number 8 was mentioned. But I was so surprised.... I missed some of that kind of detail.

    Actually further to the right.... past the dog run. There is nothing else there now, but you are correct.

    Supercharger - Enfield, NS

    True! I should have asked more specifically. Frankly I was shocked at the coincidence of it all, me being just happened to be there at THE time and place that he was breaking ground at Aulac. I mean what are the odds? I should have bought a lottery ticket that day! My impression was that it was...

    Exciting news for the Maritimes. Talk about being at the right place at the right time..... I was using the CHAdeMO charger in Aulac at the Irving Big Stop, when a very nice gentleman asked me whether this was a Tesla and if it was then I likely would be interested that he was there to break...

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    Can anyone knowledgeable comment on the massive diameter of that conduit running to each stall? It looks like you could run 4x the amount of cable in each. Considering the exposed installation why would you incur that additional expense? Is the plan to be able to multiply the amount of stalls by...

    Miami Service Center

    This is such a significant building that I am wondering whether they will fold the Dadeland mall store once Coral Gables is really up and running. They did fold a store in Miami Beach, so it has happened before. At the beginning it seemed that one of their main marketing objectives was to bring...

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    I am ok with waiting a bit - remember they are working on the next generation of SC's which will have significant advantages. Things are hugely better now then 2 years ago. The CHAdeMO installs in NB and eventually in NS will be very significant in the Maritimes and the initiatives that other...

    Supercharger - Yermo, CA (LIVE 21 Nov 2017, 18 V2 Stalls)

    There was an earlier question as to whether 18 stalls would make this the largest SC location. I know that Sarasota Florida which is already under construction has 20. Location of "Coming Soon" Supercharger in Sarasota confirmed I remember reading a press release that said that there would be...

    There will be a meeting of the Nova Scotia Tesla Club on Sunday August 20 in Mahone Bay Nova Scotia. We will meet at 10AM at Oh My Cod restaurant which is located at 567 Main St, Mahone Bay, NS B0J 2E0. There is parking directly to the left of the restaurant while facing the Bay. After a...

    More information on CHAdeMO installations in Nova Scotia. The basic summery is that Nova Scotia Power has a RFP out for partners to install CHAdeMO at their locations. The goal is to have 12 installations ready for use in Spring 2018. Here is the press release: Leading the charge; Nova Scotia...

    YAY! Level 3 is coming to Nova Scotia!!! This seems to be similar to the installations now going on in New Brunswick but I am sure we will have more detailed information soon. But for now, read this and celebrate! Electric cars getting charging boost

    Supercharger - Naples, FL

    In a trip from Miami to Sarasota on Saturday morning (early) there was a no Naples SC on the map nor did the system navigate to it, which would have been the likely stop instead of Ft. Meyers - so I agree with Larry. It is not showing.

    Hundreds??I w Come on down to South Florida - plenty of waiting there too - both Plantation and West Palm can get pretty dicey. I was surprised at Marathon once with all stalls full (only 4 of them there). South Florida has a huge Tesla population and there are real SC issues here. HOWEVER...

    Firmware 8.0

    There used to be a build information web page that told you what the build actually did since the release notes are so pathetic. I cant seem to find it anymore. Does it still exist? IF so does anyone have a address / link for it please?

    Yes. also I agree about the map - lets hope it is just an error.

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    I do not think this is correct information. I know of a very recent contact where Tesla DID provide the equipment free of charge (and yes in Canada). I believe the offset for installation chargers is discretionary as mentioned in another email.

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    I understand your pain and do not disagree. The destination chargers and Level 2 chargers are helpful but not a SC. It is strange that they removed the Woodstock one. It is disappointing but we do not know if there is another plan. Lets hope.

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Has anyone noticed that there is now Destination Charging at Municipalite de Notre-Dame-du-Portage in RDL? I just saw it on the map and I do not remember seeing it before. I am kind of wondering why they put that in now when there is a SC in RDL. Maybe they could move it to Woodstock!

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    A few things to consider: In several locations (for varying reasons) Tesla has aggressively pushed out Destination Charging instead of a larger population of SC's. Two examples of that are Manhattan and Miami. If you look in those areas you will find relatively high availability of Destination...

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    You're right... they basically solved the lack of SC in Manhattan with a destination charger initiative. A year ago I would have said the same was underway for Miami but it seems to have stalled with few new installs. Fortunately there are more J1772 / Level 2 and Chargepoint options - but I am...

    Good News! NOT a supercharger, however I have been informed by the Mayor that the Town Council in Annapolis Royal has unanimously approved the installation of Destination Chargers in Annapolis Royal. That is all the information I have. I do not know exactly where or when or how many Amps... but...

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    That is going to be tough..... Even if there are only 48 charges a day (2 an hour) @ 50KwH of charge each you are talking about 2500 KwH a day. That has to be one very big roof.

    New Equalizer In Version 8.0.2.50.114 - Please Share Settings

    Yeah - 2 hours is much longer then 4 minutes.... but it is still irrelevant for most of us, and it has nothing to do with when your particular VIN is scheduled to receive it.

    New Equalizer In Version 8.0.2.50.114 - Please Share Settings

    I agree. My version 8.0 update got corrupted and a tech on the phone had to restart the download. It was all over the air. They started it while I was talking to them and they could see that the data was being received and told me that it would take a couple of hours and that is exactly what...

    I'm not sure it will sink the brand. I am not sure how big the wait lines will be - I think it is a very price sensitive issue. If there is no cost yes there is an issue, but if the cost is $.40 / KwH or $20 / 50KwH charge - people will think twice and charge at home if they can, which is the...

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    While the charger in Houlton / Woodstock has been on the map (literally) for a long time, the general intentions of Tesla as far as the Maritimes is unclear. One thing that is clear... one service center in Montreal is not a long term plan for the Maritimes - driving 1200 Km for service is not...

    Supercharger - Brewer, Maine

    There is a very conspicuous red dot at that location on the Tesla 2016 supercharger build out map and it is a logical location for travelers from Maine to the Maritimes as well as to/ from Quebec and NB - however there is no news. It is unclear whether the dot is in Houlton on the USA side or...
