    They could put TStores inside as well. It is a comfort to have Mall Security Trucks cruising around all night long when you are out in the lot charging your Tesla after all the stores close. +1 TM!!

    This is excellent news! Hopefully it expands beyond the first 5 stations.

    It's good to see that Superchargers will be installed at CherryVale Mall in Rockford, Illinois. CherryVale is at the intersections of several interstates and major highways. They connect Chicagoland with Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota, and central Wisconsin with downstate Illinois.

    Wish they had added some at the HQs in Chattanooga (Hamilton Place)... it would have really helped in that area (and benefit me a bit as well)

    When you think about it, malls are the perfect location for Superchargers.

    1) They are often near major highways
    2) There is plenty of parking to set aside 10-20 locations for Teslas
    3) Plenty of shops, cafes, and other things to do for 20-60 minutes
    4) Malls have a draw for high income demographic Tesla owners

    Haha, yes. Elon is the name of a local university here. I know a number of people who have kids that go there.

    This is big news! I think this is the first such deal they've done like this, right? I'm still hoping for a deal with near-the-highway Starbucks locations.

    Yes, first I've heard of a publically announced partnership for superchargers. I wonder how much this will cost per supercharger installed for the mall? Is there a federal/state/other incentive that would apply? Or are they purely seeing this as a ROI?

    Yes this is the first deal. And I believe there will be more to come based on the quote below. Also, outlet malls make the most sense. Outlet malls are generally off major highways between areas with high population density. It would not surprise me if a major outlet mall developer signs on soon.

    “CBL is pleased to be one of the first national mall developers to enter into a long-term partnership with Tesla. We are very excited to bring this amenity to our customers and the surrounding community,” said Jim Ward, Vice President of Brand Development for CBL. “We are confident that Tesla owners will appreciate the convenience of charging their vehicles at our well-located shopping centers that serve as the hub for shopping, dining, and entertainment in their communities.”

    I hope they incorporate some way to encourage people to move their car when done charging. This really would be the ideal place to install a couple of HPWCs next to them as well. If you are going for dinner or a movie, you may not even need a Supercharger.

    If they can't integrate the superchargers with some sort of push notification to the smartphone app to indicate when charging is complete, how about just wiring up a klaxon and flashing light on the charger itself that is triggered when the charger is in use but charging flow drops to nil. That should get the attention of the wayward owner... :tongue:

    I wonder if Elon Musk will give any details on the partnership during the Q2 conference call. If they are getting any money for putting the Tesla Stations at those malls it will be a HUGE deal.
