    A local Tesla owner was in a meeting and saw a sentence in some meeting minutes from December that the Weis Market in Bellefonte (near I-80 exit 162) is "looking to install a Supercharger". She said she should know more next week.

    I saw a single traffic cone a month ago at the exact spot where I think they would install the chargers. I will drive by tomorrow to see if I can see any thing that looks promising.

    Harrisburg is at a Weis market - and according to the signs, they are paying for the electricity, too.

    That would be great news. There is definitely a gap on Rt 80 between Bloomsburg and Macedonia, OH. I contacted Tesla a month ago and there was no info regarding a SC on that stretch. Fingers crossed!

    There needs to be another one besides just Bellefonte. I have done the trip from Macedonia to Bellefonte and it's not easy in an 85.

    Yes, that's way too far.

    Mercer, PA (Comfort Inn I-80/US-19/I-79ish)
    DuBois, PA (I-80/US-219)
    Bellefonte, PA

    That would split to 65-80 mile gaps, plus help cover the N/S routes.

    Now that they've updated their 2017 wish list locations, how goes the Bellefonte supercharger? Would love to have it operational before the first PSU football game this fall.

    After finding the Falls Creek supercharger at Sheetz, I called the two Sheetz locations in Bellefonte but neither had any knowledge of superchargers going in.

    Still no signs of construction at Weis or Sheetz in Bellefonte.
