    Hi everyone! I just got my Model 3 configuration email last week and placed my order on Thursday, so had a new NEMA 14-50 outlet installed on the wall near my driveway by an electrician this weekend. I won't be able to test the outlet until I get the car in what I am guessing will be six weeks, so was wondering if anyone nearby would be willing to give it a test run for a free charge? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm right up the road from you. Could help out either this Thursday evening, or we can figure sometime next week.

    I'm in Broomall, so happy to swing by as well if needed. Maybe you should let us know what your schedule is in terms of what works best (Nights, days, etc.) then we can figure out who's free.

    @PatD or anyone else local who may be interested, there is a new proposal for the land over by Cardinal O'Hara to be developed. The plan is to take the existing Don G property, developing an additional 9 acres and leaving 160+ acres of forest that will be maintained. It is 40% smaller than the prior Goodman plan that was knocked down by the community.

    I bring this up here in case anyone is interested in attending the meeting at O'Hara tomorrow 5/21 at 6pm to learn more. I have written the developer already saying I know everything has to get approved first (and the Marple Green Space group is against the plan), but if it gets approved, it would be a great place to have Tesla destination and ChargePoint chargers.

    I understand the desire to keep the green space & there are a lot of shopping areas around, but my opinion is we can't enjoy the space now and this plan presents a good compromise of green space but also allowing the archdiocese to sell the land. I think either way something is going there, so now's the time to speak up to hopefully get something the community can benefit from. I'd love to have a Tesla charging station near a new Wegmans.

    More info here Our Plans - Town Center at Marple Preserve -- even if you can't make the meeting, the site has information to contact the developer and/or local commissioners should you want to.
