    Supercharger - Salem (Apperson Drive), VA

    This site can be marked as permanently closed. The charging equipment was removed. Other site reopened last month.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    I drove by the temporary site yesterday and saw a 3 charging.

    Drove by yesterday...getting closer, should be "soon".

    Spoke with a construction guy there today...likely around another month (hopefully open Memorial Day weekend).

    I will try to go by "soon".....

    They still have a fair amount of work to do here, probably 2-3 weeks.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Work on the Sheetz rebuild continues. I would guess they have at least another month to go. No activity concerning the supercharger equipment; the pedestals are covered.

    Not many dining options here...Sheetz, a Hardee’s on Electric Road a block north. There is a greenway along the Roanoke River that provides a very pleasant place to go for a walk.

    Supercharger - Salem (Apperson Drive), VA

    It shows up as nearby chargers on my Tesla app. Always says “1 of 3” available even though there are only 2 chargers there. I have never charged at a 72KWh urban SC but the chargers at this one look like the SC in Arlington VA which is a 72KWh one.

    Supercharger - Salem (Apperson Drive), VA

    So yes this site has two chargers. I plugged in today at 55% and fastest charging was 47kW, although there was another Tesla charging. As these chargers are at the front of the parking lot, they may be susceptible to icing. No signs to indicate spots are for Tesla charging.

    I live close by so will check this out later today.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    This store is temporarily closed for a remodel. They did the same thing at a nearby Sheetz; took about ten weeks to complete. My guess is that this site should be open again around early March. I will keep an eye on it (closest Chik-Fil-A is across the street!). The supercharger is Lexington...

    Looks good:

    This site is moving along. Doubt it will be ready by Christmas or New Year’s.

    For future reference...the Tanger Outlets have free level 2 charging. I used those all the time prior to the first Wawa supercharger.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Yes just confirmed (SOC was already at 80%)...

    @wdewing999...you can use my HPWC for a few hours over Thanksgiving if you need to. There are also several hotels in town with them. Just let me know. I live within 2-3 miles of the Salem supercharger.

    Still no power....

    I will try to get by this week to snap more photos and attempt to charge.

    Supercharger - Frederick, MD

    Supercharger under construction near me (Salem, Virginia) has been at this same stage (awaiting pedestals) since mid-July. Look at all of the superchargers under construction north of the Canadian border....is that where all of our pedestals are going??
  22. jfe_md

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Sorry guys, no activity at this supercharger site. Looks like they are still waiting on pedestals.
  23. jfe_md

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    30 that are under construction, that is.
  24. jfe_md

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    I will go by tomorrow and post an update. And check out what I saw on Twitter today. Now know where are the pedestals are going. Almost 30 superchargers in Canada just north of the border.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Drove by last night (on my way home from Atlanta)….still no pedestals. Hopefully this will be done by Thanksgiving and yes, it will be convenient for those travelling I-81 south then I-77 south. The Mount Airy SC looks to be about 6 miles from I-77, not terribly convenient.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Went by again today. Nothing new, still needs pedestals.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    There is a B&B in Rocky Mount that is not too far from the lake that has a HPWC as does the Bedford Welcome Center.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    I went by the Salem site last night. No change, still awaiting pedestals. There are destination chargers in the Roanoke area as well. The one at the Hampton in Salem is about four miles from this future supercharger. Don’t know which direction you are coming from the superchargers in Lexington...

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Went by yesterday...no changes (except a truck/trailer blocking all the future charging spaces). This parking lot is on the small size; I hope ICEing isn't an issue.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Update on Salem...nothing new happening, still no pedestals.

    Supercharger - Madison, VA

    Agreed. I stopped at the Sheetz in Mt. Jackson last weekend. Thanks to Sheetz. Hope we do not have the same problem in Virginia that they have had in North Carolina (ICEing).

    Supercharger - Madison, VA

    Danville would be great for anyone wanting to use US 58. Madison seems too close to Charlottesville (less than 25 miles). I have never had to wait in Charlottesville.

    Supercharger - Madison, VA

    First Lynchburg, now here? Looks like they are filling in the US 29 corridor. With the pedestal shortage (see Salem supercharger thread Supercharger - Salem, Virginia ), I doubt this one will be ready mid-August.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    I went by Salem site today...no changes. Awaiting pedestals.

    Hey Siri, be = by!
  36. jfe_md

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Went be today. Don’t know where the workers are. No trucks or trailers with equipment either. No Tesla boxes with pedestals waiting to be installed. Will be up and charging....soon...

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    The Holiday Inn Express is not in the best part of town. The Country Inn may be a better option for you.

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    @agloutney….Hotel Roanoke is a wonderful hotel that has destination charging (2 HPWCs). I would recommend it over the other hotels in town (if the Hotel Roanoke is full or too pricey, the Hampton Inn in Salem would be my 2nd choice). Short walk from Hotel Roanoke to downtown which has abundant...

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Slow progress. At least these are as far from the store as possible, will hopefully limit ICEing.
  40. jfe_md

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Judging by the progress thus far, I would not expect this one to open until late July. I believe the city of Salem has its own electric company so hopefully final inspection will be quick and painless.

    Will go by "soon"

    Thanks

    Any of you local folks know if the Decatur supercharger is still operational? It is no longer listed on the Tesla page but still on supercharge.info. Thanks

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Lots of rain recently, not a lot of progress.

    Supercharger - Mt. Airy NC

    Sweet! Looks to be about 6 miles from I-77.

    Went by today...some progress but a long way to go....

    My wife is on Facebook; I will link through her account. We'll have a little meet and greet at this supercharger after it opens.

    Don't do Facebook. 21 Teslas around Roanoke is great!
