    I stopped by today as well. Pretty busy already (3 Model Ss and another Model X).[​IMG]

    I posted the event on the Tesla Owners Mid Atlantic site and tweeted it. See everyone at 8am <I’m already tired thinking about it>.

    The fit is sure tight! I had to adjust two or three times yesterday before feeling comfortable enough pulling forward into the space. No complaints otherwise though. So excited to have this two miles from our house.

    @Half Dollar Bill - Will you be able to bring the ribbon cutting supplies? I have some, but my giant scissors are less than effective.

    I think there is more to it than that. I have arrived there at 25% after a 1 hour commute from Bmore and the max I have ever rcv'd from here is 60kw?

    FWIW, I set up a dummy route to see what it says about it on the Nav, and the Gaithersburg supercharger is listed as 120 kW.

    As a general rule, if my current battery percentage plus the current rate of charge is over 120, I feel I’m getting a good charge.

    Yep. According to supercharger support they see no successful charging at that pedestal in over a week.
