Please scroll down to the bottom of the article for updated information.

An article in the South Florida Sun Sentinel states that eight version 3 Supercharger terminals are being installed at a Wawa gas station and convenience store at 20 SW 12th Ave, Deerfield Beach, FL 33442.

Here’s a vicinity map. (For a full-sized image, right click on the image and open it in a new tab.)

Interestingly the Tesla Find Us map does not currently list a "Coming Soon" Deerfield Beach Supercharger Station. However, there is a "Coming Soon" Supercharger Station in Boca Raton about four miles away.  So, there is a chance that this installation is the "Boca Raton" Supercharger. 

Update as of Jauary 10, 2020:

As of the beginning of 2020, Tesla updated their Find Us map.  There now is a Deerfield Beach "Coming Soon" pin in the map and the Boca Raton pin remains as well. So apparently there are going to be two new Superchargers roughly 5 miles apart.

I have located an approved permit application that confirms that there will be 8 Supercharger terminals, but the application does not provide details regarding the version of the Supercharger.  The Sun Sentinel reporter of the article linked above informed me that a Wawa corporate representative told him that this will be a version 3 Supercharger installation. We will need photos of the Supercharger cabinets to confirm the version. If there are only two Supercharger cabinets, then this will be a version 3 installation.

This appears to be a concrete pad for one Supercharger cabinet feeding four charging terminals.

The white cabinet on the right is the main switchgear.  The concrete pad on the left appears to be for one more Supercharger cabinets feeding four more charging terminals. If there are two pads with a total of two Supercharger cabinets, that would indicated that this is a version 3 Supercharger installation.

This is the concrete pad and conduits for the utility power transformer. 

Update as of February 25, 2020.

Tesla notified me that the Deerfield Supercharger is operational.

Here's an enlargement of a portion of the previous photo showing one of the two version 3 Supercharger cabinets.
