    I heard in Elon's remarks that Tesla would pay to add a wall type charging plug at locations likely to be destinations for Mode S travelers. Does anyone have info.on this? We plan on spending time in Banner Elk NC this summer and there are no chargers closeby. Who would I contact to see if this location would qualify for a free installaion somewhere in the town?

    Destination Charging

    If your hotel, resort, club, or other full service destination is interested in partnering with Tesla Motors to install charging hardware, Tesla may be able to provide free or discounted Tesla Wall Connectors for our mutual customers' use.

    Designed to incentivize thought leaders in the hospitality industry, Tesla will offer this program to early adopters who wish to attract forward thinking and passionate customers.

    I just wanted to also point out that generally Tesla expects the installation cost to be borne by the end “user”. Installation is also usually much more expensive than the cost of the free hardware Tesla provides.

    Long dormant thread, but a question....

    I recently visited a big fancy resort hotel that has two HPWCs installed in the parking lot, with EV-only signs and everything. They did a really nice job.

    Question: why doesn't this resort show up as a Destination Charger in my Model S nav map? What does the resort have to do to get Tesla to add it?

    Perhaps the resort bought the HPWCs and installed them on their own, not knowing about the destination charging program. Or they had just been installed as part of the program and the list hadn't been updated yet. Email [email protected]
