Florida Tesla Enthusiasts Welcome to the sign-up page for the Florida Tesla Enthusiasts club also known as TESLA OWNERS FLORIDA. Our club participates in the Tesla Owners Club Program. While it is sanctioned by Tesla Motors through the program, it is an independent social club and electric vehicle advocacy group and it does not have a business affiliation with Tesla Motors, Inc. The purpose of the club is to permit Florida Tesla Motors enthusiasts to meet, exchange information, educate, and advocate for various electric vehicle related causes. The club is open to permanent or part-time Florida residents who own Tesla Motors vehicles, have reservations for Tesla Motors vehicles, folks considering the purchase of a Tesla, or fans of the cars and/or company. Whereas the vast majority of members own or have a Tesla vehicle on order, owning a Tesla vehicle is not an eligibility requirement. Although our founding members live in Sarasota and the Tampa area, we have over 400 households consisting of over 600 individual members enrolled throughout the state of Florida. Our membership is grouped into regions (Southwest, Southeast, Central, Northeast and Panhandle) and events are not centered just in the Sarasota/Tampa area. It is our practice to both organize club events to coincide with official Tesla Motors events which have been held on both Florida coasts, as well as conduct independent club events throughout the state. Beginning January 1, 2014 we have instituted annual dues of $12 per household. (This nominal amount is mainly for liability insurance.)

We currently have 100 locations that are enrolled in this network. Here's a Google map of our club charging network coverage.
