    Is it just me or has Tesla added a dot on the coming 2017 supercharger map in Clearwater or St Pete ?

    Hi,

    Yes, this is discussed in this thread:
    Anyone wondering about the 4 new superchargers in Florida?

    Moderator Note: Rather than combining the threads, I'll leave this thread for specific discussions of the possible Pinellas County Supercharger Station.

    Larry

    I cannot get too enthused since we're still waiting after a couple of years for the Miami SC and Supercharger

    @pdeinselen found a permit application for what is likely Tesla's Clearwater supercharger and posted about it in the 21 "Coming Soon" Superchargers thread. Reposting that comment below so discussion of this location is in its own thread:

    pdeinselen: "Been checking the permit site periodically for my prediction at the Wawa located at US-19 and Countryside and I can now confirm I was correct. Permits have been filled for eight (8) v3 stations at 26508 US Highway 19
    Clearwater FL 33761.

    Accela Citizen Access"

    Thanks @mociaf9 for bring this here for its own discussion. I will pop back to this thread with progress photos and updates as I see them happening.

    It is interesting the on the permit is lists v3. Time will tell if that is true. Depending on how quickly the construction can be completed that would be one of this first v3 in Florida. If I remember correctly the recent Supercharger near Disney is a v2. THe Fort Lauderdale location I think is further along in the permitting process and that would be a good candidate for v3.

    When I am able to snap photos, what are some of the few things I should look out for/take photos of to assist the community in determining if it s a v2 or v3 charger?

    Here's the full permit description:

    "Tesla Clearwater
    Online Permit - Installation of Tesla Charging Station within existing parking lot consisting of (2) TESLA V3 SUPERCHARGER CABINETS, (8) TESLA V3 CHARGE POSTS, (1) MASTER CONTROLLER, (1) SWITCHGEAR ASSEMBLY, and (1) UTILITY TRANSFORMER. Two concrete pads will be poured for equipment."

    Considering the permit follows a 1:4 supercharging cabinet to stall ratio which doesn't exist for any other type of supercharger type, there's no reason to think that it'll be anything other than a V3 supercharger. As for other indicators to physically identify a V3 supercharger though, these have thinner cables (they're liquid cooled) and larger supercharging cabinets (they support over 6x the power).

    Permit finally issued 10/9/19. I will keep an eye out for delivery of the equipment plus any pre-delivery prep work.
