    A local friend made the drive from Springfield, MO to St.Louis. He'd called ahead to the Ritz-Carelton who did not have charging prior to the call, but had a high volt outlet installed for him prior to his arrival.

    In the email he sent he said it was 220v, but I'm not sure if it is that or 240v. You can call Greg in engineering before you go if you plan to use it to confirm the exact voltage and plug type.

    North American residential voltages are nominally 120/240 and have been for many years. Way back, it used to be 110/220 and for some reason "220" has stuck when it comes to people talking about stoves, dryers and such.

    Having said that, a lot of commercial establishments use a 120/208 volt three-phase, 4-wire configuration, and outlets here would likely be 208 volts nominal.

    Yea, no doubt...their reputation for over the top service seems to be well deserved.

    Yea, I suspect it is a 40/50 amp service, but didn't confirm.

    Did he share any details on how much range he had left if any after he got to the Ritz? I need to make trip in reverse.

    This is wonderful news. I'm going to Saint Louis (by plane) with my wife this year, because it's too far without the supercharger network. When the route is up, they have my business next year. Thank you for posting news of it.
