    Supercharge.info shows a new Supercharger in North Aurora, IL. There's an existing site in Aurora (opened in February 2014). This one's closer to I-88. So, a better location and a better deal?

    North Aurora, IL

    Interstates: I-88
    US Numbered Highways (<= 5mi)

    I-88
    From: Start (I-80, Moline, IL) - 115 miles
    To: End (I-290/I-294, Hillside, IL) - 27.4 miles
    Diversion: 1.4 miles
    From: Coralville, IA (I-80, I-88) - 187 miles
    From: Davenport, IA (I-80, I-88) - 130 miles
    To: Normal, IL (I-88, I-355, I-55) - 132 miles

    Really just improving an existing site.

    According to the supercharger map on the official Tesla.com the one in Aurora on Broadway disappeared. I think the one in North Aurora must have replaced it. The one on Broadway was in the Roundhouse parking lot and the superchargers were on temporary dollies the last time I was there.

    The SC at Two Brothers brewery is still there, but I'm local and can't believe I missed the construction on the one at Woodmans in North Aurora since I'm up there frequently. I'll need to go check it out today.

    I was there and charged Thursday. The sod is still 'squishy'. 8 back-in stalls on the south side of the parking lot. Woodman's is supposed to be expanding in the Chicago area. Wonder if that means any more SCs here.

    Here's the one in North Aurora, half of it anyway. I had a friend who lives up there snap a picture of it today. He also verified the one at the Two Brothers Roundhouse is still there, physically anyway.

    The New Supercharger in North Aurora and the old one in Aurora by Two Brothers Brewery are both working (as of yesterday).

    By chance the other day I ran into one of the guys at Woodmans Supermarket (where the North Aurora SC is located) who was on the Woodman's team that was responsible for getting the SC located there. He was looking for my feedback on having it there since this was a new thing for them. We spoke for about 15 minutes but it sounded like one of their hopes was to attract more upscale clientele to their store. Hopefully locals that may use this location will spend some time shopping in the store. It sounds like if this one works out they will be considering having Tesla install SC at other Woodman's locations. I believe they are mostly in WI.

    Personally I didn't shop here too much in the past because of how far it is from my home, but we always liked the store. In the future we are going to shop here whenever we pass it on the way home and need groceries to help support the business, whether I need the charge or not.

    Maybe the other woodman's (in carpentersville) will one day get a supercharger as well.
