    @Larry Chanin:

    I am aware of those chargers.. i was just hoping there would be more coming on-line. Hopefully when Tesla establishes a more direct presence in Naples, this will spur destination charger build-out.

    A neighbor of mine has club privileges at the Marriott on Marco Island and has offered to help me get access to this charger, but again, I don't want to impose. Also, I have not yet had a chance to stop by either Ritz for lunch, but if I do sometime I will be sure to ask to use the HPWC there. Still while 2 hrs of destination charging is better than nothing, it doesn't really solve my problem of where to charge while in Naples the way a Super Charger in Naples would.

    the easiest thing currently is to go up to Ft Myers Super Charger and go for a Target spree in the meantime.

    @Galve2000, can you get a 15a outlet at your Condo? We have one in our house on Marco that gives us 4mph or nearly 100 miles per day which was more than enough except for one urgent deal that came up and required me to run over to GEM (thanks guys!).

    Also, the Naples Grande Beach Resort's web site states:
    • The resort offers three complimentary Tesla charging stations for guests who would like to charge their vehicles during their stay.These stations are located in P2 garage (First garage as your enter the resort driveway)
    http://www.naplesgrande.com/m/additional-resort-information

    I haven't seen any other independent confirmation of this however.

    Hi Ted,

    Thanks for the information. I consulted with the appropriate individual at Tesla and I am informed that Tesla did make them an offer, but the hotel never followed through. Therefore, if this location has charging equipment it is not part of the Tesla Destination Charging network and it is not on Tesla's website or programmed into the fleet's navigation system.

    By the way, if you are interested in joining a Florida Tesla club, please click on the link to Florida Tesla Enthusiasts in my signature.

    This Supercharger project is still in the early permitting phase. On Oct 4th it received a partial approval of the Rough Underground work.

    Hi Charles,

    Yes, the so-called Fort Myers Supercharger at Gulf Coast Town Center is 30 miles north of the proposed new Supercharger Station in Naples.

    Yeah that is the one I am planning to use while down there as the Naples one seems unlikely to be built by Jan. Not as convenient a charge spot for me as I will be in south naples but easily doable for travel in that area.

    I do not have dual chargers so really my only fast charge is the supercharger network while travelling.

    There are a number of Destination Chargers in Naples. Some were discussed upthread. Most of the luxury resorts will permit you to charge for free if you dine at one of their restaurants.

    Yes, I understand that.

    What I was saying is, in addition to using the Fort Myers Supercharger, that depending on your location, it may occasionally be more convenient to also use Destination Chargers located at various resorts in the Naples area, especially if you plan to dine there anyway. You may not get a full charge, but it may assist you in providing for your daily driving needs without having to drive 30+ miles out of your way to a Supercharger.

    Drove by the Bayfront Supercharger site in Naples this afternoon. Construction crew was working on conduit. Didn't bother with photos because the site didn't look different from photos posted earlier.
