    I saw some utility trucks in the parking lot behind Wegmans last week. I asked one of the workers if they were installing superchargers for Tesla. The guy said "What's a supercharger and what's a Tesla?". <sigh>

    So I just got back from a mini road trip this past weekend to surprise my mom for mother's day (drove up from Hampton Roads, VA) and was shocked at how there wasn't a supercharger in that King of Prussia Delaware/Chester county area. A serious void!! I wasn't about to travel into Philadelphia for a puny urban SuC, along with the parking garage access fees :(

    Planning ahead I used the Claymont SuC on my way into the region, and took a nice walk around/extended lunch at KoP midway through my trip, but would've loved a rapid ability to get back to 80-90 for the in-region driving.

    I'll be watching this thread with interest. Tesla's website only mentions a target date of 2019.

    What's even crazier is that Blink installed stations on the Penna turnpike years ago (state grant) and that Electrify America managed to install stations on the mall proper. Sure both are with varying success, the stations often don't werk and that part of the mall parking is a complete zoo.
    You are asking the wrong people here, call Tesla, tweet Elon, bug the sales people at Devon.

    Sales people at Devon have zero say in SC placement.

    Nothing sells Teslas like a Supercharger full with them, curious passes by asking questions and seeing the range increasing in real-time. They are the “Tesla doesn’t advertise” part of the equation. Sales people’s jobs rather depends on that and they do give feedback up the chain.

    Are we not supposed to say that there is a Supercharger at the Devon store?

    I was told that all Service Centers are supposed to have at least one SuperCharger within the service area for testing purposes. They are not for public use though so telling people would just confuse things.

    I want Tesla to tell us what the holdup is. If its KoP/Montgomery TWP blocking it let us know who to contact and protest.

    Well I ended up moving out of state. Best of luck to all of you . It'll probably still be under permit when I come back in a couple of years.
