    Supercharger - Sandy, OR

    I noticed the Tesla map for the Northwest has a new item. Is this in Troutdale/Gresham area or on the way up to Mt Hood? Which ever it is good news for me so I don't have to go South to Woodburn before starting for home.

    Thanks TBajema for the great update. The cones were still up Thursday night, but commissioning cannot be far off, maybe even today. The stripes and place of the parking stops won't take long.

    Supercharger - Kennewick, WA

    Construction Update – August 21st Close but not today and unlikely tomorrow. The completion of equipment enclosure continues to delay opening. Further delay will push opening into next week. Less than a day of focused work needed before inspections and commissioning. Most significant...

    Construction Update – August 19th Best case scenario still commissions site on Friday or Saturday. At least two more construction days are needed before inspections and commissioning. The equipment enclosure has taken much longer than expected and it looks like the last cement order wasn’t...

    Construction Update – August 11th I think ReddyLeaf will be surprised when he visits Thursday evening. The guys from SDK Electric take a lot of pride in the lowest number of days possible to build out a Supercharger location. I’m betting the job will be substantially complete by then. I think...

    Construction Update – August 4th ​The SC location is about 3 miles from I-82 on the Ellensburg to Pendleton route, and several hundred yards from US-395 on the Ritzville to The Dalles route. I took several progress photos around 5pm today. There are 8 bays – 1 drive-in with room for a...

    Local news story I didn't get a chance to go over there while it was still day light so no owner snaps. But one of my friends alerted me about this story. Hope to get pictures tomorrow. KEPR CBS 19 Fred Meyer stores (Kroger) has been a great supporter of EV charging stations here in the...

    Charging at the Stage Stop Nice day for a drive, and I am very glad not to have to conserve. Ran the AC all the way here. Eastern Oregon was up to 102 before I got to Ontario.

    CHAdeMO Make/Model Review — Using with a Tesla

    AeroVironment EV50-PS According to our granddaughter, “CHAdeMO charging is so awesome!” It opens up lots of trips off the Supercharger Highway, especially in Oregon. My CHAdeMO adaptor was delivered to the Portland Service Center. Yesterday when I picked up they ensured the Model S...

    Supercharger - Coeur d'Alene, ID

    It is about 40 miles further to go thru Ellensburg and charge their Super Charger. 210 miles is very doable in an 85, but the detour to Ellensburg would be the fastest way to erase range anxiety other than taking the Model S at a leisurely pace. Before The Dalles SC was up and running, I went...

    Rented 85kw for 3 days during Super Bowl.. Opting NOT to buy

    Road experience vs. theory All around this is an interesting thread. I think it is great that KDIceBergSlim was able to try out a Model S for a few days, but it is hard to become a seasoned EV driver is such a short time. Without the road experience, it is easy to get caught up in informed...

    Supercharger - El Centro, CA (8 V2 stalls)

    Supercharger - Golden, BC Canada

    Status photos Shawn, Thanks. These are great, as they say a picture is worth a thousand words. It looks like the supercharger hardware is place and the pedestals are installed. The wiring interconnections may also be done, which leave the question of status of the transformer. Given that...

    Supercharger - Lima, OH

    Great Status photos Thanks. It looks good. They were still working on the pedestals as the back cover is off of one, but it looks like the transformer is in and the meter is installed. Will Santa charge his new shiny red Tesla sleigh at this station?

    Completely ICEd at Ellensburg Superchargers! Grrr

    I just re-read the entire thread because I don't think this is much of a problem. It appears there was only one case on July 21 when someone was completely blocked from charging. Before and since then others have always been able to charge. I live about 100 miles from Ellensburg, but stop...

    Wheel chair access in a Model X

    I agree this is a good idea, and also agree Tesla should focus on getting the X out to customers and later the ≡. But one day the Honda Odyssey we have with a ramp and rotating driver's seat will need to be replaced. If Telsa makes it easy to take out the middle seats and the opening at the...

    2014 Supercharger predictions ?!?!?!?

    2014 Projection and Priority routes My guess of 275 is based on Tesla’s performance from 100 to 200. I have high confidence there will be more than 260 and less than 300 worldwide at yearend. Globally Tesla is doing a fantastic job rolling out the Supercharger Network. Tesla is forging ahead...
