SuperCharger - Downtown Madison - WI

Maybe I'm just crazy but I think they made a big mistake. The charging stall is positioned on the wrong side.

I could be misunderstanding but I think those are just labels, not indications of the exact position of the chargers. Page 5 of the pdf of the site plan gives you a better idea of the layout. The main problems i see are:

1. The handicapped spot has the supercharger in the wrong position unless they block off the one spot next to it.

2. This is right next to the sylvee concert space so whenever there is a show people are going to try to park here so the charging spots will always be blocked then. The only way they could combat this is if they put up a gate with a code like they do in Vegas for the supercharger station next to the strip.

Good catch. And no, you're not crazy. There was an error in those earlier plans. I called the design firm and spoke to the project contact, who told me it had already been caught and they've since updated and fixed the plans. The bottom space now has the charging post in the correct place at the other end of the stall (normal placement for a pull-in stall) and the rest of the posts are shifted one parking space over to where they should be.

This is great news, both for the central Madison and West Madison electric/Tesla drivers. I been hoping Tesla would install some stalls in central Madison for the ease of charging instead of driving to the other side of town. Prime location as well.
