    Seems a bit north of where it should be to serve the Okanogan?

    See Predator Ridge Resort | Tesla Motors

    Predator Ridge has two 80 Amp HPWCs. That makes this a wonderful destination just off of the BC Supercharger Highway, but not a Supercharger.

    This is a common problem that HPWCs in the Destination Charging program are confused with Superchargers. It looks like some PR person got a little confused with terms and lifted a lot of boilerplate from Tesla. It's also interesting that the picture shows a J1772 plugged into a Model S.

    To the uninitiated, a "super" charger could mean anything faster than a regular charger.

    Not to mention that Predator Ridge is a significant detour off the major (only) highway (97) in the area. Without GPS, chances are most non-locals will miss the turn off of the Commonage on their first pass.

    Both the Vancouver Tesla team and the Tesla Supercharger team have indicated that a Supercharger will be built in Kelowna this year. I would bet that they are looking at West Kelowna in the area of Butt Rd / Elk Rd if they can find available parking space.

    Would be really nice to see a supercharger in the Brewster, Pateros, Omak (Washington state) area. That, and the Kelowna supercharger, would connect the Thompson Okanagan to the I90 supercharger route.
