    @jbumps posted that a contract has been signed: West Virginia ?

    @emupilot suggested that perhaps Tesla had done a deal with Sheetz at 21 Asturias Lane
    West Virginia ?

    @jbumps replied that Sheetz doesn't own the property but was very accommodating to their new neighbours.

    So Supercharge.info added 21 Asturias Lane.
    So I'm creating a dedicated thread. I have sent the thread URL as a discuss link to Supercharge.info.

    I live just a few miles from the Sheetz in question. It looks like they're putting in some other new buildings next door, so I can't tell if the superchargers will be at the existing Sheetz parking lot (which there is ample space for) or in the new construction. Lots of earth moving/utility work going on, but no signs of construction for the superchargers themselves yet.

    Are you an owner that I've somehow not met in this small town?

    I was in Morgantown Thursday (12/29/16) and no sign of Supercharger construction. As MogWV indicated in post # 5 above, there is a lot of construction across Asturias Lane with some VERY LARGE piles of gravel and dirt. Heavy earth moving equipment seems to be grading the site for something big.

    Now if Tesla would just put a SC in or around Charleston, WV! Then I could make it from Bluffton, SC to Columbus, OH without adding 200 miles to my trip by routing through TN and KY.

    It was a good time- fun meeting and talking to some other Tesla enthusiasts. I was actually in line in front of Newscutter's better half while she was feeding him pics from the event. It was amusing to see the bewildered looks from mall walkers trying to figure out what the heck everyone was lined up for.

    On another note, I stopped by Sheetz in Morgantown again yesterday and still didn't notice any signs of construction on the superchargers.

    There are 6 parcels in total. Sheetz was the first to see completion. I'm speculating that the surrounding construction, winter weather, and impossibility that is working with Mon Power will mean it will be some time before this site is live.

    I'm new to this site, but I wonder if anyone knows if there is any hope of a SC in Charleston? I see this post was made a year ago....just wondering and hoping.

    If you check out the Tesla Supercharger website and check out their planned map for 2017, it looks like they're planning on putting a supercharger station in Charleston, WV at some point as well as one on I79 midway between Charleston and Morgantown. ETA would be anyone's guess, though.

    On another note, I stopped by the Sheetz in Morgantown again today, and I still didn't see any sign of construction.

    Yep, here's an article from yesterday, indicating one is in the works, though they haven't selected a specific site yet.
