    Supercharger - Orlando, FL - W Robinson St

    Yes, Tesla is providing EVGo with Tesla connectors. However, I was informed by Tesla that while they will provide Tesla connectors to the nation’s largest public fast-charging network, it is unlikely that they would do that for a single standalone installation. I find it puzzling that Tesla...

    Specialty EV License Plate

    John, As that sage philosopher, Dirty Harry, once said: "A man's got to know his limitations." Depending on the level of difficulty of a task, you have to decide whether to DIY it or hire a professional. When I needed to install an 80 amp Tesla Wall Connector, I hired a qualified electrician...

    Specialty EV License Plate

    This endeavor requires a mature and respected organization with legislative clout. First, you need to persuade a legislator to sponsor a bill authorizing a specialty tag. Then you need the Florida legislature to approve it and the governor to sign it into law. Starting on the effective date...

    Thanks for the follow-up. I assume that JEA means that the electrical contractor installed the wrong meter cabinet. The contractor installs the cabinet and JEA furnishes and inserts the meter into it. Larry

    Question for all Florida Tesla owners using Tesla wall charger & FPL at home

    Here's another unconventional layout. I would have located the bollards with the signs back a little in green space beyond the curbing to minimize damage to Teslas backing up. I sure hope that they install parking stops. Larry
