Where are the charging stations?

It seems a good time, since the Model S is being released, to comminicate about new charging station. There are only level 2 's around Chicago, but not many. By Gurnee Mills Mall, and some of our Walgreens and Walgreens corporate here. There are more popping up in some garages in the city. It has begun....

The coverage by owners' home chargers + commercial sites (malls, restaurants) + the Supercharger network might fill in faster than you think, if the pressure is kept on to contact new owners about joining. A "word from the wise" from stores or TM HQ giving links to local associations and/or wider webs would facilitate that immensely, of course.

@ msksus1; Plug Share seems to be a fairly good source for finding available "opportunity" charging. It appears many private BEV owners / non owners are making their residences available to those needing a charge top off while on the road.

I plan on doing so as soon as I get the electrical work completed on my house installing a dedicated 240V plug/circuit in my garage with another on the outside to provide access to a veh. in my driveway to opportunity charge if needed.


I'm sure it will for the East and West coasts. I'm not so hopeful about the middle states. My thought is that there will be a few but not where I typically travel.

well when i get mine in here, just mins from omaha, i will allow tesla owners to top off.

Don't forget that the map and the fora are only a minute fraction (<10%?) of total reservations. Buyers will be far more motivated to join charging clubs than chat clubs, I suspect!


I don't doubt that. Any Tesla reservation holders in Stillwater, OK or Junction City, KS? (The two logical charging places for a Model S for most of the trips that I do.)

If so do you plan to purchase an HPC?

I think there needs to be some collaboration with Tesla stores to pass on a link to co-op charging networks.

It could help overcome the dreaded "range anxiety" sales resistance!

Msksus1, did anyone take you up on the tesla network? Seattle responding. Model S. looking for Oregon and points south to sacamento, on the "electric highway" to LA.
