    Slidell, LA will be the next location going East from the Texas Supercharger Island. Good location at the intersection of I-10, I-12 & I-59.

    I'm on the look out for the permit application...

    A reliable source, who is a lurker on TMC, your info, and the "coming soon" map, all point to Slidell, LA as on the way! Mobile, AL is on the "coming soon" map and a reliable source indicate that Mobile, AL is on the way, also!

    This will be great to see!!! I look forward to the results of your sleuthing.

    Great news! Any info yet on just where in Slidell this will be or do we have to wait for the permit application?

    Found a good spot. It's at the north edge of the North Shore Square Mall, there's a lot for sale that probably had a demolished building. It's very close to the on/off point for Interstate 10, it's within walking distance to a mall, restaurants, and hotels, and you can get easement onto the eastbound I-10 onramp if you really want to do an excellent job... Tesla Motors :)

    I agree with you that would be a great location (right off I-12 BTW). However, being somewhat local I can tell you, unfortunately, that mall is on the decline (I don't understand why but all the big box stores have abandoned it).

    I'm speculating the location will be here:

    This is a brand new development called Town Center right off of I-10. http://fremauxtowncenter.com/

    I'm still on the look out for permits.

    Has anyone checked on permits in Slidell recently? It's the missing link from Texas to the beaches of Destin, Florida. (Not counting Baytown, TX which Tesla apparently doesn't think is necessary based on their "precise energy modeling").

    What's the attraction of Destin?

    No idea, but a surprising number of our friends make the trek there from North Texas.

    Rated by many as the best beach on the gulf coast. Very well maintained. Love that sand.. it looks like snow at first glance.

    I was stationed at Eglin AFB for a few years and loved every minute of it.

    Well, Slidell disappeared from the "Coming Soon" map on Tesla Motors website for about a week but it's back now.

    Additionally, it shows a supercharger in Alexandria, LA in 2015 but it's not there on the 2016 map.

    I'm still checking for permits in Slidell and haven't seen anything relating to a Tesla Supercharger.

    Well, that's a new twist. I know "Tesla giveth" but didn't expect a "taketh away." - chalk it up to proofreading needed?
    Where are those two, more northern 2015 SC sites? (I'm too lazy to zoom and toggle on my phone this morning)

    The on-again, off-again "coming soon" icon for Slidell has been off again for the past week, but still shows on the 2015 map. Tesla supercharger team said Slidell will not likely be open this summer.

    I20 - Slidell LA supercharger


    Any updates on this? Or on any of the superchargers across I20 from Dallas to Atlanta?

    I have confirmation from the developer that the Slidell superchargers will be at Town Center. No word on time frame.

    I heard from reliable source that the Slidell superchargers at Fremaux Town Center should open in January 2106.
