Do you know of a location with available spaces, enough power capacity nearby, and they want to lease the spots to Tesla for a reasonable rate? If so, have them submit a request to Tesla. It seems like you think Tesla can just easily place them anywhere they want. :rolleyes:

Yes, I can recommend a hundred places in the valley to put these Supercharging stations but I don't own the property so it won't help much. Think of all the huge parking lots all over the place. Any Target, Walmart, Frys, Shopping malls, Sepulveda basin. Power can be brought in anywhere that is not an issue. The lease space is cheap as the business benefit from increased customers while there cars are being charged. I will say the DWP is a rip off with the cost of power, even for businesses and this may prevent Tesla more than anything from opening more charging stations in the valley.

In the near future, my driveway is going to be demolished and replaced and I will be without access to my Wall Connector for 10-14 days. I am considering relying on the Granada Hills Supercharger during this time. Any updates on how crowded this location gets these days? Seems like a very busy Supercharger. Has anyone found any days and times when you can reliably charge without waiting?

Thank you,

It's slammed everytime I go there. Several times I have left because the line was too long. Like most Supercharging stations, weekends are out. lunchtime and after 5:00pm are out. Early morning between 7-8am is out as well. I would check your app throughout the day and find when there is the most available stalls. It's the only one in the valley so you can expect it to be busy for a while until Tesla builds more.

Are there still problems or is it charging properly these days? Are y'all getting 250kw?

I have no experience with this site, but just in case you aren’t aware there are a lot of factors that can influence the power that you can receive from any given Supercharger. So even if the answer to your question is “no”, that doesn’t necessarily mean something’s wrong with the Supercharger (or your car). Item U3 in the FAQ has a few more details.

Probably one of the worst supercharging stations here in SoCal. It is always slammed. I’m lucky enough to have 240 charging at my house but every now and then I think about taking it to the supercharger in Granada to get a quick charge. And whenever I look, it says 0/16 available or only a couple.

Yep, overwhelmed from day 1. Clearly way overdue, but there is another charger in SF just blocks away on the other side of the 405. I am not sure how busy that one is since its recent opening.

It is just as bad. I probably have to go to Simi or Santa Clarita.
