    Supercharger- Black River Falls , WI

    Kwik Trip is an oddball. Their "Electric vehicle charging stations" that are just a 120v outlet on a lamp post are all too common and seem like some sort of bad joke. My guess is there are some weird personal anti-EV sentiments that they hold. Just speculating though.

    Supercharger- Black River Falls , WI

    My suspicion, as I think some others have alluded to, is that the Voting Map is less about letting the public actually pick new locations, and more about gauging interest for locations that are already in early talks, to help fast-track or convince the host to help remove hurdles in the...

    Supercharger - Two Harbors, MN

    Crew was actively working on the site today. Still a little ways to go.

    Supercharger - Two Harbors, MN

    Wow! I was losing hope that this one would actually go in this year.

    Supercharger - Mankato, MN

    Thread already exists, but unfortunately it's just meant to be the St. Peter charger. That being said, I would be surprised if Mankato didn't get one in the next two years.

    Supercharger - Maple Grove, MN

    Oh, I thought you were there during peak

    Supercharger - Maple Grove, MN

    Wow, if that's the actual pricing then I won't be complaining...

    Supercharger - Maple Grove, MN

    St. Louis Park comes to mind... but don't quote me on that.

    Supercharger - Minocqua, WI

    That seems to be the case with several Midwestern SCs lately.

    Supercharger - Minnetonka, MN

    I think we'll see quite a bit of acceleration, especially as supply chain issues get resolved. Rural areas in MN could use some love too...

    Supercharger - Minnetonka, MN

    I check it on the map and it's frequently close to full during peak hours. I'm guessing they're also planning for a lot more growth on the west side of the cities. My impression is also that it is far cheaper to expand an existing site than build new ones.

    Supercharger - Bloomington, MN

    Have you tried turning it off and back on again?
  13. starman27

    Supercharger - Maple Grove, MN

    At this rate, we'll be lucky if it's on by the time the snow flies.
  14. starman27

    Supercharger - Minneapolis, MN

    It appears you are correct. @Big Earl site is live again.
  15. starman27

    Supercharger - Minneapolis, MN

    Did you happen to talk to them at all? Very curious why this site has been out of commission for so long...

    Supercharger - North Canton, OH

    Pretty safe bet it'll be a V3 (250kW). They don't really install anything else these days. With timing of next year, it could even be a V4.
  17. starman27

    Supercharger - Bloomington, MN

    Is that what I think it is?!
  18. starman27

    Supercharger - Minneapolis, MN

    Also curious about this. It's been showing closed for a couple days now.
  19. starman27

    Supercharger - Minocqua, WI

    I wouldn’t count on it. I was just there today and there has been no change.
  20. starman27

    Supercharger - North Branch, MN

    Wow. Transformer already in place? Where the heck is Bloomington's?
  21. starman27

    Supercharger - Bloomington, MN

    Lots of L2 charging in the area... And I'm not sure where exactly you're coming from, but St Louis Park really isn't that far away.
  22. starman27

    Supercharger - Two Harbors, MN

    Here's hoping it goes through! Grand Marais would be awesome too, but I'm sure that's a bit farther out in the timeline.
  23. starman27

    Supercharger - North Platte, NE

    Aren't they all pre-fabs these days? I can't remember the last one I saw that wasn't.
  24. starman27

    Supercharger - Maple Grove, MN

    Battery packs? Going to need pictures to confirm that. Probably just charging equipment.
  25. starman27

    Supercharger - North Branch, MN

    It's not a zero-sum game guys. Adding a Supercharger north of the Twin Cities doesn't reduce the possibility of one being added on the complete opposite side.

    Supercharger - North Branch, MN

    Yes!! More V3 love for I-35!!!

    Nuclear powered Teslas? Nice!

    Supercharger - Cedar Rapids, IA

    Any changes? Otherwise I should be in the area tomorrow and can check.

    Osceola, IA....my kingdom for a supercharger!

    The Midwest definitely needs some more love. There's been a lot of improvement in the last two years, and it feels like the pace has been picking up with new installs. I'm not aware of any suggestion box, so all we can do is hope and wait. I would imagine Tesla will do their quarterly update of...

    Possible New Showroom/Service Center in Bloomington, MN

    OOOOOOOO an unnamed “major electric motor vehicle manufacturer.” I wonder who that could be!
  32. starman27

    Supercharger - Des Moines, IA (NW 2nd St)

    Thanks for the update. I was beginning to wonder. Amazing how long the smallest things can take.

    Supercharger-Tomah, WI

    Most likely wind damage.
  34. starman27

    Supercharger - Menomonie, WI

    The old two-tiered rates really were a bargain. I used to love charging in Wisconsin for that reason alone.

    Software freeze in reverse

    Pretty sure you can request to leave the beta. According to Reddit, you just have to email [email protected] to opt out. I wouldn't want vision-only AP, so I get where you're coming from.

    Supercharger - St. Peter, MN

    You make several good points. I've started to become rather curious how Tesla makes Supercharger location decisions. I'm sure it is largely based on telemetry - and based on my own (anecdotal) evidence, it's clear there are quite a few Tesla's using the 169 corridor these days. The St. Peter...

    Supercharger - St. Peter, MN

    Tesla has now updated their Find Us map; the Mankato pin has been removed. Not entirely surprising, but a bit disappointing.
  38. starman27

    Supercharger - Des Moines, IA (NW 2nd St)

    Altoona isn’t that old. Is it really unreliable?
  39. starman27

    Supercharger - St. Peter, MN

    Confirmed - site is live. Charging now, albeit slowly due to cold battery.

    Supercharger - St. Peter, MN

    They were when I was there.
  41. starman27

    Supercharger - St. Peter, MN

    Swung by today and spotted a Tesla tech working on the site. He had the backs off of several of the pedestals. Didn’t stop to talk to him, but I assume this location should be live very shortly.
  42. starman27

    Supercharger - St. Peter, MN

    Well we've got pedestals, cabinets, transformer, and meter; time to light this thing up!
  43. starman27

    Supercharger - St. Peter, MN

    Possible, but the Mankato pin is still active and slated for next year. Extra Superchargers (no warning from the Find Us map) have been known to pop up, especially with known partnerships like Hy-Vee. Mankato itself is becoming a growing market for Teslas, so I would be surprised if it doesn't...

    Supercharger- Kenosha WI

    This location is sure beats Pleasant Prairie!

    Supercharger - St. Paul, MN

    Their 72kW chargers would be ideal if they could be built more quickly and in more places. They seem pretty focused on V3s though. What really irritates me is the availability of Chademo and CCS stations (albeit a lot are 50kW, not exactly fast, but theoretically useful in a pinch), and yet the...
