    Nice! Do we know if they'll be available to use after hours? That would make sense I think.

    Wow. This one came out of nowhere. I had my car serviced there a few months ago. Any SC is great to see, but there is nothing around this location.

    Three superchargers within 81 miles. At least, the permitting was probably easy compared to Plantation!

    I stopped at that service center last summer for a quick charge from their HPWC. A Supercharger will be great for dive trips ----and the Blue Heron Bridge dive spot is close.

    Wow! This will be perfect for next year's Teslanationals, especially when all but a handful of the NEMA 10-50s at the track are working and the few that do are connected to RVs.

    I am soooooo glad someone else posted about this.

    The common sense thing to do would be to reroute the fence system to allow 24/7 access without access to the yard. I suspect Tesla will do the common sense thing. They will be available 24/7 (my guess, not word from Tesla) :)

    We took delivery of our car last Friday and I asked them about it.

    They said it should be done within 2-3 weeks and they have plans to reconfigure the fence to allow 24/7 access. Timeline on that TBD. Once the design is implemented it shouldn't take them long to do it though. Any fence company can make that change in a day or two.

    I was there 3 days ago and they said "couple more weeks" fences and FPL (mostly FPL). Interestingly, this is a response to the morons in Plantation holding things up on "intricacies".

    Looking forward to it. And, yeh confirmed it'll be 24/7 access :smile: no coffee or shopping:scared: (Dominos Delivers)

    Super gald to see Tesla again being proactive!

    Shoot! I am driving down to Palm Beach tomorrow and was hoping to use this supercharger a few times this week! Does anyone have any suggestions of any places in or close to Palm Beach with high-powered charging? I've checked Plugshare but only saw mixed/poor reviews, slow chargers, or poorly located chargers, so I thought I might as well as those who live closer! Thanks!

    PM me.... I'm on Singer Island (6 miles due East of the Dyer SC) and have 80 amp charging. Fee for charging is a smile :)

    Oh, and Dyer has HPWC as well.

    It is not on the Tesla Supercharger page yet. Did they move the fence or is it just during business hours?
