    Here are some pics of the Tesla charging location at Washington Square, Portland OR. Twin 100Amp 600VAC max capability...

    Nice digs...

    This garage is a little more private/obscure, west side of the Mall, sort of below ground, just North of the outside entrance to Nordstroms. Saw an Audi R8 and few other nice cars parked here...

    100 amps 600 volts.
    Nice find.
    I hope that the supercharger gets installed in Portland before Bellevue. I'll never need the Bellevue one, but I plan to use the Portland one a lot.

    Um, er. It looks to me like those are just standard 208/240V Roadster HPCs.
    The 600v is probably just max rated voltage for the cut off switch.

    I was told that Washington Square will have 2 100 amp 220v service charger with a new Model S connector. These will be in the present location and will be reserved parking and free charging for Teslas.

    Oh good catch TEG. You're right. (I updated the post to show capability)

    And from Thumper...

    Richkae, we'll be doing the exact opposite when we come up and visit family... hitting the Bellevue store!

    I'll need the Portland system at the end of August (and one time at the Bellevue). Hope the Roadster connector stays!

    Darn. Got overexcited for future supercharging.
