Supercharger - Charleston, WV

The orientation of the charger stands is, in my experience, (which includes a cross country trip in my MS) unique for back in spots..

This appears to be a new implementation strategy by Tesla. The Little Rock, Arkansas location that went live a few weeks ago is configured the same. I charged there shortly after it went live.

This is Little Rock, not Charleston :)

This site is open! Charged successfully on Thursday morning. Does anyone have an email for supercharge.info to update their site?

On the about tab you can also use the anonymous feedback form if you don't want to email.

But if you're _really_ lazy you can always just (mention) @BlueShift in your post and hope he gets the message.

I would not trust this Supercharger to be fully operational until it shows on the official Tesla nav map or telsa.com supercharger map. They could be running tests and they might take it offline for periods of time.
There have been other sites recently where people reported charging and then they were turned off followed by being turned on and published on the Tesla site.
 
Charleston WV supercharger!!

I may have the most travel impactful "supercharger opening" story yet.

Next week we are driving from Florida to visit my wife's family, about 70miles south of Charleston. We then drive back to Florida and then fly out a day later from Orlando to Detroit (4 tickets) to visit my family. I drive a 60 so the gap was to big north of her family. Spanning this would have taken me hundreds of miles out of the way. So we were going to drive 17 hours south to then pay for 4 plane tickets to fly 25 hours north the next day. I read this thread for the first time today

Many people talk about how the opening of a new supercharger will save then a couple of hours of charging or driving...

Wow, This supercharger opening just gained me 2 days of time with family, about a $1000 in plane tickets refunds, an extra visit to a family relative in Knoxville on the way home (not possible at 30k ft), and we get a car to use while we're in Michigan.

I hope Tesla knows how amazingly impactful these Superchargers are that are not just to handle high capacity areas, but actually gap holes in our freeway system.

Thanks Tesla!
