Tesla keeps on expanding its Supercharger network, the backbone of its electric vehicle mission. In the latest addition to this infrastructure is the largest US V3 Supercharger station with 56 stalls.
Members of the Tesla Owners East Bay California were the first-ever to use the Firebaugh Tesla Supercharger and they took a good amount of photos and videos of this new and interesting location.
Before Firebaugh, Kettleman City Supercharger was the largest with its 40+ stalls. The Firebaugh Tesla charging station uses the latest V3 Supercharging technology that can charge a Tesla at the speed of up to 1,000 miles (1,600 km) per hour.
Another interesting bit is that all of the roofs of the charging stalls are equipped with solar cells. These solar cells help conserve energy in the day time to the station’s battery storage system, making the station rely less on the grid.
Tesla has strategically placed the Firebaugh Supercharger on highway interstate 5 which will facilitate Tesla drivers traveling from San Francisco to LA and vice versa.
One of the first users of the Firebaugh Tesla charging stationTeresa Kamakea shared her story with our friends at CleanTechnica, Tesla has clearly labeled the 150 kW and 250 kW (V3) charging stalls, she informed.
She further told about her journey to her father’s place which is located in Southern California. She was able to charge her car up to 306 miles within 30 minutes while she used the lounge, bathroom, and walking her dog.
Eli from A Tesla Adventure also reported about the Supercharger in the following short video clip yesterday. Tesla has just put them V3 Superchargers before the holiday season when everyone is moving between North and Southern California, he said.
We have seen the Tesla Semi prototypes delivering Tesla cars to customers in California as the workload increases at the end-of-quarter deliveries push.
Tesla owners posted some awesome photos of the Firebaugh, CA Supercharger station, sure this place is huge and has some serious amounts of power.
