    Looked over the Design:

    1. Black & Veatch are the electrical contractors

    2. 8 Supercharging slots

    It appears on the SuperCharger map already, I don't recall seeing it there before.

    That is a GREAT location!! I'd been hoping for exactly that to facilitate travel both to the Berkshires (Tanglewood) and north up into Vt.

    I had assumed he meant the planning board meeting on 10/1.

    Agree, 120 miles to White River Junction which would be ideal for those heading north who have the 60 kWh battery especially during the cold winter weather. Of course that assumes the rumor of a super charger in the White River Junction area actually happens.

    WRJ makes the most sense for the next Supercharger up I-91, but I've heard that Brattleboro will host the next Supercharger north of West Springfield; the more the merrier! :biggrin:

    Yes, I was actually asking if anyone plans on attending the meeting. I may go to see what's said...

    Agreed great progress on southern New England super chargers , northern New England is next logical step. You mention 60kw battery pack: any feedback on how EZ or difficult mini road trips have been? Given impressive build out of SC 60 kw might be plenty of range?

    I've heard that too -- disappointed. Brattleboro is good for the N/S run, but Greenfield MA would be okay N/S and great on E/W (MA Rte 2). While Brattleboro does serve E/W on VT Rte 9, that road isn't nearly as good a E/W route. Still, any SC is a good SC.

    agree +1 And Brattleloro makes Stowe within reach for a Model S with a 60 kWh battery so that would be good

    I was unable to make it. I'll have to find out tomorrow what the outcome was.
