This is great news. I wondered why they had chargers at some rest stops but not all rest stops. (The fact that VW is "paying" for them is just icing on the cake.) It labels the tesla specific chargers as "fast chargers" - even for their current implementations
To save people a click, going south to north:
Sapper Creek: Current 1 level 2 station
Pompano Beach: Future 4 lvl 3 chargers + tesla chargers
west palm beach: Future 4 lvl 3 chargers + tesla chargers
Pt St Lucie: Future 4 lvl 3 chargers + tesla chargers
Fort Drum: Current 6 tesla. Future Future 4 lvl 3 chargers + tesla chargers
Canoe Creek: Future 4 lvl 3 chargers + tesla chargers
Turkey Lake: Current 6 tesla chargers. Future 4 lvl 3 chargers + tesla chargers
Okahumpka: Future 2 lvl 3 chargers + tesla chargers
I have always thought this would be a perfect place for SC's. We have taken two huge trips in my MX -- the first was almost 7500 miles in 2017, and this year almost 3500. We've SEEN the SC network! They should also do a deal with Cracker Barrel, since they are basically everywhere.
At the press conference Gov. Desantis said that the new chargers would be started or completed by the end of 2019. Of course, I didn't expect that any would be completed so fast, but I thought at least permits would be applied for.
Have you heard anything?
Seems like this would be a priority for Tesla considering the gap in the middle of the state and the volume on the turnpike.
