    A good splitter for I-55.

    Excellent!
    Any word on the alleged downtown SC location? (Guess I shouldn't get too greedy);)

    Well with the new Kansas City supercharger and this supercharger popping up without much warning, I would not be shocked if there was also one being built right now in some random level of some random parking garage downtown.

    There are at least 10 stalls at this install. More if some are hiding behind the dumpster.

    I don’t think “shocking” is the right term, maybe surprised is. You know what is shocking, this Accident at Oxnard Supercharger Site and the fact no Teslas were involved

    It's a start - but they could use another one somewhere down the line. That's over 130 miles between there and the one in Miner...in the winter that would be tight with some of the smaller batteries.

    I grew up (and my parents still live) in Ste. Genevieve - that would be a perfect exit for one! :D

    This one will make Rolla to Effingham a much less hair raising drive. No more detour to St Charles or driving 55MPH part of the way in an S85

    I'm still waiting for the downtown one. My hope is that they put one very near i70 that we can quickly hop into and then get back on the interstate.

    Workers were on site this morning. Area still roped off. Only change I could tell is that the red Tesla Parking Only signs are now up.

    I was there yesterday about 4:20pm and the electricians were making up the wire in the main switchgear.

    Is an Ameren transformer there yet? Those are usually the biggest activation delay.

    Stopped by yesterday to check it out. Exactly 10 stalls. Everything looks complete, but no transformer. I asked when it would be ready and the guy I talked to said the official word on these projects is he doesn't know. Apparently he's had that question before. ;) At the time, they were just installing the parking blocks, so I suspect all the electrical is done (except for the transformer).

    Nice work! I knew we'd be waiting on a transformer, hope it shows up soon. :)

    Thanks John! Keep us posted. I'm down that way a lot more than St. Charles, so this will be a great addition.

    This is awesome! It is the last supercharger I need to complete my annual trip from DFW to STL without the West County side trip!
