    Today Tesla discussed their plans to expand the Supercharger Network in an article entitled Charging Is Our Priority.  They also updated their interactive "Coming Soon" Map of Superchargers and we received some exciting news. 

    The map shows that in addition to our existing 15 operational Supercharger Stations in Florida, that they have plans to add 15 more stations.  Although we don't have official word, some of the new stations are likely to be expansions of existing stations. Here, in no particular order, is the list of new Supercharger Stations planned for 2017.

    1. Live Oak                      (Operational)
    2. Altamont Springs
    3. Orlando
    4. West Melbourne         (Location found)
    5. Yeehaw Junction
    6. West Palm Beach
    7. Boca Raton
    8. Plantation
    9. Aventura              
    10. Miami - Wynwood
    11. Miami - Brickell
    12. Florida City                    (Operational)
    13. Fort Myers
    14. Sarasota                       (Operational)
    15. St. Petersburg              (Operational)

    You will notice that Tesla has finally updated the map and the navigation systems of the Tesla fleet with the information regarding the new Naples Supercharger Station.

    We have determined that item 12 on the list, the Florida City Supercharger Station, is currently coming along nicely.  It is an 8-terminal station located in the parking lot of Sonny's BBQ in Florida City. For photos go to Supercharger Station Being Constructed in Florida City, FL

    How about two iconic American Cars clubs getting together for a short, local Ice Cream Run? 

    The Skyway Corvette Club of Sarasota-Bradenton invited our Southwest Region to join them in a meet and greet on Veteran's Day.

    We started by meeting at the University Town Center Mall (UTC) in Sarasota and caravaned  over to the Culver's of Sarasota 4 miles away. 

    It was an informal, fun, local event with about 30 cars and around 60 people in attendance.  Even some of the UTC Tesla Store staff joined us at the mall parking lot.


    We had a nice turn out at the UTC mall. Probably over 60 people.



    We had a number of Model Xs



    Some of the UTC Tesla Store staff joined us.



    We all caravaned over to the Culver's of Sarasota for some wholesome custard

    Please Vote NO for Amendment One in November

    In general, our Florida electric utilities have been helpful advocates promoting electric vehicle adoption in the state. However, the same can not be said for promoting solar energy when it comes to supporting policies beneficial to residential customers and small businesses.

    Like the automobile dealerships fighting Tesla in selling directly to consumers, the electric utilities are spending millions to prevent small solar businesses from pursuing a free-market solution of leasing solar panels directly to consumers thereby limiting up-front costs to homeowners. 

    Floridians for Solar Choice started a citizens' initiative to deregulate the solar market to allow third-party power providers to sell rooftop solar-generated power.  To confuse voters with competing Amendments, Florida's four largest electric companies created the "Consumers for Smart Solar" initiative which will appear on the November ballot as Amendment One, masquerading as a pro-solar energy initiative. 

    Please take the time to read the Tampa Bay Times editorial by Paula Dockery, a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland.
