    National Harbor will be holding a grand opening of the Tesla Superchargers at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, October 4. I understand media will be present. I expect to receive additional details on Monday from my contact and will post them here when/if I receive them.

    For the full discussion about this supercharger location, see this thread: Supercharger - National Harbor, MD

    Oops. Tuesday the 3rd. Doesn't look like I can edit the original post to make the change.

    I swung by today there are about 12 chargers which is welcome. Is National Harbor planning on charging Teslas there a parking fee?

    We've heard the whole lot will require payment, but the signage seems to indicate otherwise. I've sent questions to a contact at NH and am hoping for answers tomorrow.

    Thanks I just read the older thread. I am not a fan of the parking fees at NH, specially if I have purchased at a business or ate at a restaurant. Many times I just drive over to Old Town because I feel much more welcome.

    how did it go? Do drivers have to pay while their car is charging and they are in it?

    It was really nice. The facility is very nice. I was told by representatives from National Harbor and the organizer of the event that Tesla owners will NOT have to pay for parking while there; however, another fellow Tesla owner reported hearing that we would have to pay. I hung around for about 2 hours today meeting people and did not have to pay nor did anyone come by requesting that I pay. The lot is very spacious, and I think it is located in an ideal area. I'll post some pictures from the event!

    I swung by there the other day and I don't think there is an actual gate for the parking area. If I am charging and am in the car I will not pay, if I leave it charging or leave it parked I will. Common sense.

    @zambono, I suspect a lot of people will use that approach. Plugshare is showing $3 for 0-1 hour. That's pretty reasonable. Most folks who are just charging and moving on will be there less than an hour.
