Florida has many Superchargers (those ultra fast charging stations operating only for Tesla cars Models S and X) … there’s even one in the Keys! But a very important spot was lacking in the network… North of Miami, near Fort Lauderdale, Sunrise, Hollywood and Pompano Beach!
In short, we’re speaking here of Canadian Snowbirds’ favorite areas! The trip from Canada to Florida with a Tesla is now quite common (but I had the honor of breaking the ice nearly 2 years ago now!). In fact I know several Snowbirds that now save by buying only one vehicle (a Tesla S) to spend six months in Quebec and six months in Florida and enjoy the Supercharger network’s free electrons along the drive (via I95). Leaving a car in Florida and the other in Quebec (with extra costs for registration, insurance and air tickets and more!) is a thing of the past for them. But many live in an apartment or condo, the weekly recharge was a serious problem that the Supercharger in Plantation has now taken care of… one supercharge per week and voila!
The construction of this valuable site lasted nearly 6 months … it seems that connecting to the grid took a long time.
This new Supercharger is less than 10 km from my parents’ condo!
Supercharger location :
813 S University Drive, Plantation, FL, USA
