    PSEG and change to RLM time of use Billing

    I was thinking of changing to an October true-up date as well but was wondering if February would be better. That's when I start accumulating a lot of credits that I can use up mostly in the summer for a/c. By the end of winter, I'm almost back to zero in terms of credits. Thoughts?

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Got in my 2014 S85 RWD pre-AP and when I tried to drive, it said my charging cable was still connected. Problem was my cable was not connected nor was my charge port door opened. Tried to unlock and open charging port with screen, app and fob but nothing worked. Rebooted, powered off and still...

    It was great speaking with you today, Thiyag! Really happy to see this SC go live today. Made my weekend.

    My key opened someone else's tesla

    Maybe a dumb question but is it possible to leave a Tesla unlocked? I seem to recall that if I unlock the car with the fob and walk away without the "walk away lock" setting on, the car stays unlocked. The handles may retract but if you push them without having the fob nearby, they will come out...

    Supercharger - Newark, DE

    I just called Tesla and it's still offline. They said it lost power but there's someone going out there today or tomorrow to fix it. They think it will be back online shortly after that.

    Plugging into random 110 outlet

    It's theft and this kind of thing will not help the image of EV drivers. We already have an uphill battle: I once parked at an EV-only charging spot in a public parking lot and a woman in a nearby ICE made a snide remark at how she wished she had a parking spot reserved for her too. Imagine when...

    2017 model s cracked glass roof upon delivery

    If you order a new car, you will take delivery in 2018 and won't get the $7,500 federal tax credit, correct? I think the credit is being removed under the new tax bill in Congress. If so, that change (along with no free supercharging) would argue in favor of keeping your current car.

    PA to Bar Harbor, ME

    We stayed at the Acadia Hotel a few weeks ago. Destination charger right out front by the entrance and they save the parking spot for you. If another guest parks in that spot by accident, the hotel asks them politely to move to another spot. Really enjoyed our stay there and the management is...

    A different idea for limiting SC

    Perhaps they should charge per minute rather than per kwh. That would encourage people to charge for only what they need and then quickly liberate the spot for others. If your battery is almost empty and your 20 minute charge nets you 60kwh, you would be charged the same as for someone spending...

    NJ Raises Gas Tax By 23 Cents

    "Democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time." - Winston Churchill I'm tired of the "everyone else is a gullible idiot" tirade. Listen, nobody likes paying taxes. Complain all you like about inefficiency, waste and bureaucracy...

    Reasons I like my "classic" nose cone

    I was able to compare the front ends at the event today in Paramus, NJ. The new front looks better in person than in the photos but of course, those cars are brand new. Let's see how they stand up to the everyday wear and tear. A bit of road tar and rock chips may look a lot worse on the new...

    Reasons I like my "classic" nose cone

    The new nose adds too much body color to the front. There's no contrast. It's like painting your house red and then painting the front door red as well. OTOH, a red house with a black door adds contrast and so does the nose cone on the classic S. I ordered my 2014 red S without the pano but I...

    Supercharger - Plattsburgh NY

    In that case, hopefully the Buffalo SC was the guinea pig for NYSEG and that they'll know how to work better on this one. Tesla may also have learned how to work better with NYSEG. Then again, it may be deja vu all over again...

    Supercharger - Plattsburgh NY

    If so, then that would be pretty weak reason for the blue dot, especially because I believe the LinkedIn post didn't mention anything about a permit for that location. Have the blue dots ever been wrong?

    Supercharger - Plattsburgh NY

    Thanks, Buzzz. I like the "construction phase" but my optimism is tempered by the apparent lack of a permit in Plattsburgh. This location has been on the Tesla map for over a year but it seems like it's either not a priority or there's some issues that we don't know about. I wish we knew if...

    Thanks to Model ≡, Price increase is coming!

    If they increase the price without adding features (meaning charging a higher price for an identical new car), I wonder whether the price increase would affect the value of a used Model S. If you have to pay $5k more for a new car, perhaps a used version may become even more attractive?

    US Resident Making Deposit in Montreal

    You may have considered this already, but the Burlington folks may be focusing on the "New England" forum area rather than "Mid-Atlantic". For what it's worth, my local Tesla store said the reservations will be made online via a computer in the stores, so I'm not sure your store's location...

    Supercharger - Plattsburgh NY

    Beggars can't be choosers: I'll take Queensbury NY. The link between there and Montreal is about 170 miles, which is much more doable than the 220 or between Montreal and Albany.

    Supercharger - Plattsburgh NY

    Still no news at all on this location even though it was listed on Tesla's website as coming in 2014, then 2015 and now 2016. Meanwhile, sites that weren't even on the map have since received Superchargers. I'm not sure what is the cause of the delay for Plattsburgh but I'm wondering whether my...

    Supercharger - Burlington VT

    Eli - thank you so much for your efforts and support! We used to drive through Plattsburgh on our way to Montreal but now we make an effort to pass through Burlington instead. We really love your store. Charging and shopping at a great place like yours is a treat.

    NoVA to NY and/or Atlantic City?

    I'm heading to Atlantic City next weekend. Based on what I can see on Plugshare, the Borgata has a few charging options but there are no rooms left, so it looks like we're going to stay at Harrahs. I see from an old post above that Harrahs was able to provide some kind of charging support a few...

    Supercharger - Plattsburgh NY

    Now that the South Burlington, VT location is almost operational, I'm hoping that Tesla will turn its attention and energy towards a SC in Plattsburgh NY. I keep parsing through the TMC threads, hoping for any news regarding a Plattsburgh SC but so far the word "Plattsburgh" is usually preceded...

    Supercharger - Burlington VT

    Hi Bertrand, I agree the drive is not much further if you go through South Burlington rather than Plattsburgh but I think it will be much longer in terms of time. According to Google Maps, it would take me about 6 hours to make it to my usual destination (the center of the island of Montreal)...

    Supercharger - Burlington VT

    Same here. Plattsburgh is a must. As for going to / from Montreal via Burlington, I still haven't decided whether it's worth the added time of the farther drive and the charge time going through Burlington or whether it's better to just drive slower straight to Montreal. I think the former is a...

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Installled 2.7.56 last night. I have an S85 VIN 509XX. Release notes mention torque sleep and improved efficiency. The acceleration seems more responsive (as though the "gas" pedal was easier to push down) and the regen seems weaker, at least at low speeds. I had heard that cars with VINs above...

    Any idea when the Vermont supercharger will be open?

    I've done it many times in winter and summer. It's all about driving about 60 mph from Montreal and watching your rated range. As you get closer to Albany, you can speed up if you see you have no problem making it. I sometimes stop at the Price Chopper charger in Plattsburgh or the Holiday Inn...

    Disable your key with your phone

    Does the black roof look just as good as the dark pano (in terms of the nice contrast with the body color)? I hope so because I also ordered a MC Red with the black roof. I only saw the red with the pano roof and loved the contrast between the roof and the body color. One of the reasons I went...
