Planned Supercharger Station discovered for Punta Gorda (Public)

June 21, 2021 3:20 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


The editor of Supercharge.info, the unofficial website that tracks Supercharger installations, has provided us with another lead to an upcoming Supercharger Station in Punta Gorda. After he posted the address on the Tesla Motors Club forum, I located the permit for this station, shown above.  As it displays, it will be an 8 - charging post, Version 3 Supercharging Station. The upcoming location is not yet listed on Tesla’s official Find Us map.

The station will be located at another Wawa convenience store and gas station at 26415 Indian Trail Dr, Punta Gorda, FL 33950. It is an existing Wawa built a few years ago and listed on Wawa’s website

Below is a vicinity map:


The red arrow marks the location of the future Punta Gorda Supercharger Station. Is is about 28 miles north of the existing Fort Myers Supercharger Station at Dani Dr and the Fort Myers Tesla Store at Colonial Dr.  It will be about 30 miles away from the "Coming Soon" Venice Supercharger at the BrewBurger marked by the gray pin to the left. 

Although Google doesn’t yet provide an aerial view of the Wawa parking lot, Tesla’s permit application attached a complete set of plans, including site plans.

Here is an excerpt from their site plans:


The site plans show that the Supercharger installation will be built on the west side of the Wawa parking lot.


Above is another site plan showing an enlargement of the the Supercharger installation.  Please note that its orientation has been rotated 90 degrees such that north is pointing to the right.

The permit application was summited on May 26, 2021.  It will probably be a while before it is issued and Tesla's contractor can break ground.  When they do, if you live or work nearby, please send me high-resolution photos of the construction progress.

Thanks.
