    This permit is a few months old, but due to the valuation, I thought it was worth putting on here.

    @Chuq @BlueShift @MarcoRP Thoughts?

    It seems like this is most likely Electrify America since Tesla is building a supercharger in St. Louis Park. It's worth keeping an eye on though.

    While it doesn't identify this with the usual "TELSA" (sic) or "Supercharger" label, Tesla has been touting a Minnetonka location for over a year now, so that, combined with the fact that it is at a Target, certainly gives it a strong possibility.

    Valuation certainly makes me think Tesla, but no real confirmation. Definitely one to keep an eye on! (Given it's a few months old maybe there is some activity on the site?)

    The permit hasn't been issued or even approved yet, so there won't be any activity on-site for a while.

    I don't recall seeing a valuation more than $200,000 - if anything it seems too high to me.

    The address is a Target, this would be the third supercharger announced in Minneapolis metro in the last month. That would make sense, they've been talking about rolling out to Targets around here for about a year.

    There was talk on the MN Tesla Facebook group about this permit. Someone very close to the project did confirm it is a Tesla Supercharger and the ground work will be done before winter just like the others in the area.

    Odd. I didn’t see your tagging me in my notifications. Nevertheless, great find and will add on Supercharge Info!

    Nice. Should reduce some diversions. (Owatonna, MN would help with that spacing along I-35 too.)

    Within range of two US Numbered Highways and on the Auxiliary Interstate connecting I-94 and I-35

    I've been looking for the permits at this general location for the last couple of months, but didn't go back that far.

    Missed that since it wasn't on the supercharge.info map.

    While we're at it, does anyone have any ideas for how we can persuade them to build one in Mankato, MN? :D

    At least there's a Chademo charger, soon to be two, in the Mankato area. Perhaps the thing to do would be to the manager at the Hy Vee just off highways 14 & 22, suggesting the inquire with Hy Vee headquarters about inquiring with Tesla about installing a SC.

    That was already found and @Bg2580 started another Minnetonka thread last October with that permit as the basis. The issue was that that permit doesn't have any information which would confirm that it is for a Supercharger and not another type of DCFC charging station. Which is why Supercharge.info hadn't already updated with a blue dot for the location.
