What: Tesla is in negotiations with the City of Evanston, IL to build a V3 supercharger of 12 stalls in a public garage in downtown Evanston (Maple Avenue Self Park). [Note: The garage DOES charge fees to use, but the first hour is free and the movie theater validates for up to 4 hrs. Full details on parking rates viewable here.]
Address: 1800 Maple Ave, Evanston, IL 60201

GPS: 42.050353, -87.685491

The resolution authorizing the City Manager to sign the leasing agreement with Tesla passed at the City Council meeting on 2021-01-11. Tesla currently has Evanston listed on their map with an expected opening some time in 2022. They should be getting into the planning approvals process soon, if they haven't started already. Assuming the plans don't change, the superchargers will be on the second floor of the garage, along the north wall of the building. The lease agreement with Tesla also includes Tesla providing 14 Wall Connectors (L2 EVSE) to the city for their use. No info on where they might be used, whether in this same garage or elsewhere, but it's entirely up to the city to use them how they wish. Tesla is just providing the HPWCs.

This is great news. Evanston really is in the middle of other superchargers in the area. I was in this garage yesterday and did not notice anything, but this was before I learned of this news. I'll keep an eye on it when I can.

Hi there! My name is Wes and I am a student at Northwestern University. I'm writing a story for the student newspaper, The Daily, about the future of electric cars in Evanston. I'd like to interview Tesla owners who live in Evanston, Illinois. We can talk on the phone and it will take about 10 minutes. Thanks for considering!
