    Hot diggity. I remember going past Maryland House on my way to the Newark Supercharger back when it was four stalls, and thinking this would be a perfect location to take some pressure off of Newark. Newark doesn't need pressure taken off it so much these days, but it remains a great spot for a new installation. Should be good news for people who want to avoid the craziness of Woodbridge and what I presume will be the craziness of Laurel when passing through on I-95.

    Looks like the 2016 Tesla Supercharger map on Tesla website is filling in. Based on this find, I would guess the Queenstown outlets would also be also in line for a Supercharger. There is a pin directly beneath Aberdeen. It was always a guess as to what side of the Bay Bridge it was destined for.

    Now, if they would add just one Roadster HPC or Model S/X HPWC, then ALL Tesla owners could benefit.

    I hope you're right. Queensland would really come in handy for one of the more frequent trips I do - mostly for a shorter visit, where I don't have enough time to charge at the other end. :)

    Perfect location. Will take all the pressure off Newark.

    Mid-October, huh? Might get done before Laurel!

    Queenstown would be a great thing. I'd also love to be transported to Queensland in my Tesla - that would be awesome. Was there years ago and loved it. What a way to tour the country.. Sorry couldn't resist.

    +1 to all the hoorays for Maryland House. Great choice.

    Love it. All of my car rallys have checkpoints there. Now I can stay with the group.

    It looks like the article: Tesla Superchargers Coming to Maryland House Travel Plaza on I-95

    Great location! We've stopped there many times in ICE travels on 95.

    Maryland House and Chesapeake House? Wow.

    Sounds like future-proofing for the Model 3 storm.

    Well that explains a bit then :) I just googled so that I had a second source as confirmation when submitting to supercharge.info. Turns out I sent two links to the one source. :p

    @Chuq - I first heard about the possibility of this Supercharger location in February and I've been working since then to get sources to officially confirm it. After lots of calls and emails, including a period of time when I sensed the Superchargers were being reconsidered, I finally got the Maryland DOT and the private company that operates the Travel Plaza to go on the record that the Tesla Superchargers are, in fact, under an agreement to be installed. I'm pretty sure nobody else has independently reported this. I'm very confident of the info and sources quoted in the article.

    Is there a permit issued yet for purposes of supercharge.info? I'm not sure, but I may be able to find out from the county next week. Might be a bit early since, in my experience, the permit gets issued shortly before construction begins.

    Very very awesome. Though still hoping for a better supercharging location around 270/495
