    Thanks,

    Awesome!
    FYI... your website above doesn't work. I think you forgot the dash. :smile:

    I think this is known as a "win win" situation!

    That. I've taken a couple long trips recently and have stopped at the highest amperage outlet possible each time -- usually 70A Tesla chargers.

    Fantastic! Will keep this in mind for my next road trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains area. My ordered car is identical to yours. Yours is one of the better restaurant websites I've seen, and love the Defender on the 'Catering' icon (I have a 1994 D90). I hope more small business owners follow suit and benefit from this forum's support.

    Looks great!

    We have a Tesla on order and I was thinking about doing the same thing at our restaurant in South Carolina. I would even entertain doing a solar charger if it was financially feasible.

    It would be much appreciated if you wouldn't mind sharing the price range for such an installation and who did the work for you in a PM.

    Thanks!

    Nice! (though this post is probably in the wrong forum).

    Have you had many customer say they came in because of the charging station? It would be nice if Yelp let you filter on businesses/restaurants that have EV charging facilities...

    I'm pretty far from N Carolina, but I try to frequent busiinesses that provide charging whether I need to use it or not. Instance, I just booked a weekend at La Quinta in Palm Springs with my wife based on a fellow members suggestion and notification that they have separate parking and charging facilities!

    Yes. We have a few customers that drive Leafs and Volts. I meant to post this on the Model S forum.

    I have used the charger and really appreciate the ability to charge. Boone is a very nice area.

    Fantastic! Only 130 mi from the Burlington supercharger. Can get that 130 miles back after a nice 2 hour dinner at the resaurant!

    I noticed your photo. Hey you are Roland. Will come and visit soon

    Photo of me back in 1964 with 16 mm camera just before getting on board a Beechcraft. Filming an 8 man hookup. Charlotte, NC The young jumpers have it made now. GoPro. The 16mm would snap your neck back like a Tesla
