    Got this shot on 29 FEB 2016 of the supercharger in Lakepoint, Utah and the solar panels (on the roof of the hotel next door) that power it.

    Folks that charge there are literally driving on sunshine. :)

    BTW, Tesla calls this the Tooele supercharger despite it being located in Lakepoint and the city of Tooele being over 10 miles away. (?)

    Nice view!

    Pretty simple on the town name; the postal address is 1568 East Saddleback Blvd, Tooele, UT 84074 or 8580 UT-36, Tooele, UT 84074. Either way, the postal address is Tooele...

    Cool. I didn't know they had solar at this place. We've charged there twice on our way between Oregon and Utah. I took this photo in late December to memorialize how filthy the Utah roads got our car!

    If you think that's filthy, you don't know filthy!

    Well, the back was a brownish black, and most of the "dirt" is really road salt that UT uses. Blends in with the Pearl White, but you can see how coated it is, since the bottom black band under the doors is the same color as the paint above!

    The Oregon DOT uses redish volcanic cinders for the traction sand around here. Most of the winter, our car has been various gradients of reddish brown.

    @StaceyS, regardless of the dirt on your car, that is a beautiful pic!
