New Tampa Supercharger Station Discovered Under Construction [Now Operational](Public)

January 06, 2018 2:55 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

An alert member of the Tesla Motors Club forums recently discovered a New Tampa Supercharger Station under construction at the WAWA at 2502 N 50th St, Tampa, FL 33619, located at the corner of Columbus Drive and 50th Street, Tampa about 4 miles from the Tampa Service Center.

The nearest “Coming Soon” Supercharger Station location according to the Tesla “Find Us” map is the Tampa FL – Hyde Park Station which is targeted for the end of 2018.  Hyde Park is about 6 miles from this location, so it is possible that this may be a new unadvertised station not listed on the Find Us map.

This will be an 8 stall station.  All the charging terminals are installed as well as the Supercharger cabinets and switchgear.  It would appear that the utility power transformer and meter have yet to be installed.

This photo shows 3 of the 8 charging terminal and the Supercharger cabinets and switchgear.

Public records provide a Photographic Simulation of the site and Tesla construction drawings.

Here is a portion of the Tesla drawings: (For a full-size image, right-click and open in a separate tab or window.)

People checking this location for future progress should make a point of taking photos of the area shown on this drawing for the location of the transformer and meter for signs of work. It should be located on the grassy area near the existing storm drain.

Update as of January 11, 2018:

Utility transformer and meter cabinet have been set.  After the meter is installed in the meter cabinet the utility should be energizing the transformer.

Update: As of February 24, 2018

Although neither the Tesla website or navigation systems show this Supercharger Station as being operational, it has been demonstrated that Tesla owners have been able to charge.
