South Hill VA Supercharger

I took a trip from NC to Boston and back between Friday and yesterday, and the South Hill VA Supercharger opened officially just about the time I left. (It had not yet appeared on the list of Superchargers on the map in the MS.) On the way back, yesterday, I stopped at it. It is located in the parking lot of Kahill's Restaurant, on US 1, in South Hill. This is the first one I've seen that is not in a shopping center or mall, or in a service center like those in Connecticut. It is just in the parking lot of a restaurant. The restaurant manager said they'd had at least 9 MSs stop by and charge. She said that Tesla approached them about putting the Superchargers there. I thanked her and the owners for giving Tesla the green light.

I would like those of you who travel past it to be sure to eat lunch or dinner there, and thank them for putting the Superchargers. I hope it turns out to bring them some new customers for giving Tesla permission to put them in.

Great to know. This is on my fly-way to visit my daughter in Winston-Salem, NC (from Philadelphia or NYC).

I always thank the business owners that have shared our collective vision and placed Superchargers in their lots. Or even done it for their own reasons. They will be reaping the rewards for many years to come on this. They get money from the lot lease and the extra business, if I owned a business near a major highway, I would be falling over myself to get Tesla on my land. An affluent captive audience at your business for 30-60 minutes, talk about a no brainer!

Kahill's is actually an excellent restaurant. Even better now that they offer a "free" charge on the side ;-)

Just curious, does the owner of the real estate where a SC is located pay the electricity bill or does TM pull a new meter and have it billed to them?

Installing a Supercharger involves putting in a set of big boxes containing the actual electronics, and a high-amperage connection to the electric grid. So I would suspect that it has its own meter. Also, isn't there something in the long-range plan about eventually buying their power from SolarCity? If that's the case, they would need their own meter.
