    Just a friendly heads up to owners that are planning on using the Tejon Supercharger. The power output is severely reduced according to tech support. I am charging there now and only seeing about 45 kw. The utility company is to blame for this one as they connected to the station remotely and verified the station was not receiving the necessary power input from the grid.

    Interesting, esp since Tejon has solar panels, right? I guess no grid storage yet.

    Wait, what??? I thought Tejon was on solar? What am I missing? And this raises a question, when CA has it's "Flex your power" days, will power companies limit SC's by default? Im curious.

    Yes, but the batteries could have well been depleted with all the charging going on. Also, even if the solar panels are feeding into the station it is not enough to produce more than ~5-10 kw of juice.
