    According to Supercharge.info there is a Supercharger under construction at the
    Plaza at Buckland Hills.
    The odd thing is that Manchester is not even on the coming soon map on the Tesla website for either 2017 or 2018.

    The Tesla forum claims 16 stalls for Manchester. Nice addition for a heavily traveled route. Yesterday afternoon we witnessed all 8 stalls in Auburn, MA in use.

    Sweet! I’ll go over and take a look on Thursday. Maybe this was the 2nd icon that was on West Hartford, this location makes much more sense.

    They have been pretty quick about building this one. Here is a picture from today of 11 superchargers installed. It is right in front of Joann Fabrics and next to Artisanal Burger Company (Very good burger place) There are 8 large white cabinets, so the 16 stall claim seems spot on.

    Crap that parking lot is terrible to get into with only the one main entrance in the middle. Will have to leave feedback on PlugShare to drive to the far entrance by Joanne’s. Thanks for the pic, very easy for people to jump on and off, overall good spot.

    Visited the site yesterday (Sat 10/14). Looks ready to go - fences are down, supercharger units are up, paving has been blacktopped, white lines repainted. I was able to easily back in to the space and hook up, but the power was not on.

    Despite some who wish otherwise, New York is not generally considered part of New England....

    Let's do this thing!

    Manchester, CT is awesome for my trips to New Hampshire from NY. Just in case I can't make it to Auburn, or want to skip Auburn on the way home.

    In the winter, 84 in CT from Hartford, north to the MA state line, has not always been plowed/treated as quickly as it should be.

    It's almost always drive-able, but the state of the road will likely affect your range, regardless of your tire situation.

    This SC will help.

    Thanks for the tip. A nice set of snow tires will be helpful, but the cold and hills of CT will be a pain.

    We've run into it a few times on our Christmas journey:

    if it's December/early January and something is falling through the sky, northern CT is gonna be a bad time.

    Had one trip, took us 6 hours to get from Richmond to Danbury.......and 6 hours to get from Danbury to home. (just outside Worcester at the time).

    it was only an 8" snowstorm, but it caught C-DOT completely off-guard.

    By the looks of it the Tesla team has spent a lot of capital and man hours on this location because Leominster, MA has been worked on for over 100 days now and not completed....
    Rich, let us know when we will have a get together to launch this new SC site !!! I live in Mass so I would have to plan it more than you Conn owners would...

    Is it possible that the 2nd "West Hartford" SC location is this one and they put the wrong location?
