Supercharger - Jasper, AB


Running on Empty
Sep 16, 2016
Has this site been crazy busy/line ups? Thinking of going up soon.
I recently made a loop driving Seattle-Saskatoon-Prince George-Seattle hitting 25 different superchargers. IIRC I was the only one charging at 20 of the superchargers (including Jasper, but that was around midnight). I had one other Tesla charging with me at Medicine Hat, Lloydminster, Edson, and I think Williams Lake, BC. Canmore was the only one where I had more than one charging buddy. There were 3 of us there! I did skip Rocky View and Edmonton which might have been "busy." Generally speaking though, I wouldn't worry about supercharger congestion at all in Canada unless of course you are in BC, the GTA, or Levis, QC.

Was traveling back from Vancouver to Edmonton on the Monday. Thankfully we read the news before we set out. We didn't want to take our chances so we went through Banff instead. I think if we had a long range M3 we could have made it to Edson by charging up at Mount Robson or Valemount, but we had no idea if that area would be affected by the outage too. It was troubling to see that Plugshare listed the Jasper Flo chargers as online, but I'm pretty sure that was incorrect as the in-car Tesla navigation was showing the Supercharger offline. Usually Plugshare seems to update quickly with charger status regarding whether or not it's in use regardless of whether or not someone has checked in, but instead it showed it as available. Might give another EV driver a false sense of hope, stranding them in Jasper 😬.
