    There is a new Supercharger that may or may not be under construction in Michigan City, Indiana. First reported by a Supercharge Info Forum member (@NovaLink) saying that his Tesla rep told him a new V3 Supercharger was coming soon to Michigan City, (full quote below). Note: no specific location given.

    I’ll try to do a small permit search and see if I find anything, but I’m pretty sure Indiana uses the One Call platform, that I’m quite unfamiliar with, @mociaf9 can you try and see if anything has surfaced? Thanks

    Full quote: @NovaLink
    « On 10/31 I received an email from a Tesla Advisor regarding a broken stall that has since been fixed. During the conversation she said “Also, we have several new Superchargers planned for the area, including a V3 site in Michigan City, IN which we are breaking ground on soon and will help traffic from Chicago to Michigan.”

    I’m not from the area so I can’t tell you anymore, hope someone from the area can confirm a more precise location soon! » 2C9D080E-A717-4C73-BCA0-33FF859E1C9F.jpeg

    This would be great news. St. Joseph, MI has been in pretty bad shape for the last year. Many stalls offline or reduced power.

    Indiana tickets don't use the same searchable database that I'm familiar with. So far as I can tell, they have an online function, but you have to know the ticket number and the caller's phone number to access/view other ticket information. Basically, it's only for people directly involved, not general public searches.

    I'll take pictures even if there is no activity at all. My wife may wonder for my sanity.

    This could be a good alternative to St Joseph, MI ?

    Has anyone stopped by recently? If I’ve got a decent charge when I drive by on Sunday I’ll stop by and get a picture. I’d love to charge there instead of St Joseph...
