Above is an excerpt of the permit application for a new Supercharger Station in Davenport.

Please scroll down to the bottom of this article for current status.

The editor of Supercharge.info, the unofficial website that tracks Supercharger installations, has located another active permit application for a future Supercharger Station in Davenport.  Tesla has not yet assigned a contractor to this project and a permit has not yet been issued.

This station is not currently listed on Tesla’s official Find Us web page.

The Supercharger Station is located at the Wawa at 8103 Lake Wilson Rd, Davenport, FL 33896.

The description of work for the permit application indicates that this will be a 12-stall version 3 station.  The size is somewhat surprising since 12 parking spaces are more than a third of the total available parking. 

Here is a Google aerial photo of the Wawa.  There are a few apparent locations for 12 stalls, the west side, and the south side, 6 on the west and 6 on the south.  I think the 12 space on the south side would be best.   

Here is a vicinity map:

Update as of December 29, 2020.

Permit issued November 23, 2020.

Update as of April 16, 2021.

This Supercharger Station will have 12 charging posts. On the extreme left are 6 boxes containing two charging posts each.  Two Version 3 Supercharger cabinets are visible. There is probably a third out of view behind them.

Work appears to be beginning on the conduit under the Supercharger and swichgear. Construction started about April 8, 2021.

Update as of April 16, 2021.

The improvised tent is probably protecting the Supercharger cabinets from the elements. Some of the charging posts have been installed. 

Update as of May 26, 2020.

Tesla informs me that the Davenport Supercharger Station went into service about May 26, 2020.  While traveling to our Paddleboat River Cruise event in Stafford, I had an opportunity to charge there.  My initial guess was correct, the twelve charging posts were lined up on the south side of the Wawa parking lot. Here are some photos I took while there.

On the green space dividing the 12 charging post are the three Version 3 Supercharger cabinets and the switchgear.

There are six charging posts on either side of the green space.

Here's a photo of the other six charging stalls.
