    I have it on good authority there is a supercharger being installed soon in Owen Sound.

    Can someone local please check this address: 170 Thom Dr. Owen Sound, N4K 5N7

    Thanks!

    @BlueShift for visibility.

    It certainly was on the 2017 list so that is good to know - there is at least one forum member who lives there. This will make it two Sounds with SuperChargers in Ontario - both Parry and Owen.

    It will be very convenient if you are going to a Drive-In movie as it is right beside the Owen Sound Twin Drive-In Theatre according to Google Maps.

    Well I just checked out that site and it is the site of a construction company just outside of town. I could not see anything that would suggest that a Supercharger is being built. It would be a very unusual spot, and industrial area away from any amenities except for one diner nearby.

    It could be the address of the contractor rather than the supercharger location.

    It is on Hwy 6, which most would use to get to Wiarton, Tobomory, etc. but yes - no real amenities there vs. near the McDonalds or Tims' back in town.

    Will check it out tomorrow. That would make vastly more sense. It is very close to several eating places.

    Supercharger in permit status. Sorry I'm doing so many separate comments, there is so much to say!

    Only a 4 stall? Interesting choice. Given the amount of traffic on Highway 10 during the summer I would have thought it would warrant more. This will make one route to Manitoulin Island easier; Espanola and Sudbury will complete that circuit! I'm so greedy... :)

    Will Owen Sound be completed before Christmas? I have my doubts!
    We need Ottawa!

    Why only four stalls? Has Tesla built any four stall SCs in recent years?

    Did a tour of lake Huron last summer, and the return trip back from Tobermory to Barrie was on the edge in an S85 fully charged due to a few side trips we wanted to make.

    There was really no charging up there, just a 120V outlet on the hotel we stayed at, and I paid $20 for an overnight charge as a courtesy.

    Now there is DC fast charging for regular EV's and now Tesla's on that route. Times are changing!

    It's not like there is a large population there...

    It's on supercharge.info because Ross said it on this post, not the other way around...
