This Is One of The Largest Superchargers On The East Coast Opening Soon

Her is the image of one of the the largest Tesla supercharger on the East Coast of the United States surprisingly opening in Connecticut.

One would normally assume that the largest Tesla supercharger on the East Coast of the United States of America would normally open in a large city like the New York City, or Boston or their metro areas. But no. According to this image, posted on Imgur, this is one of the largest supercharger opening soon in Connecticut.

This huge Tesla Supercharger with 16 stalls, is opening in Manchester, CT. Manchester is right outside of Hartfords. It's east of Hartford and located strategically between NYC and Boston, almost half way. This location makes sense for all the travelers from NYC and Boston. Manchester, CT is about 125 miles from Times Square, NYC and 349 miles from Washington, DC. So if you are traveling with your Tesla Model S anywhere between Washington, DC and Boston, including NYC and Philadelphia you can benefit from this location given your Tesla's Model S range.

At this time thought, Manchester, CT isn't shown as a location on Tesla's supercharger map. It's because the supercharger is upcoming, not ready yet.

I have to say that I read in a discussion on Reddit that Sarasota, FL Supercharger is up and running with 20 stalls. Whereas this one has only 16 stalls. However, I can't confirm this information at this time. If you know, please write in the comments.

I am sure that by now you know that Tesla has a new and nice looking urban superchargers. Here is Tesla's updated supercharger network map and the new Urban Supercharger in case you haven't seen it yet. If you don't know how Tesla's superchargers differ from 3rd party supercharging networks you may want to look at this comparison as many EV enthusiasts believe that companies like GM should should also be funding EV infrastructure.

Think about this : a gas station typically has 8 to 20 gas pumps, each capable of completely refueling a gas powered car in about 4 minutes or less. A Tesla charger can refuel an electric to 80% in about half an hour. So the typical gas station can refuel probably 12 times more cars than this "huge" Tesla Supercharger station. There are more than a million gas pumps in this country. And now the oil companies (Shell, the first) are buying charger companies t install CCS chargers in their gas stations, the CCS protocol being what most automakers (and shortly all, except Tesla) will use for charging.
The Tesla station (with its 120 KW charger lines) being outdone by the CCS 350 and 500KW stations being built by Porsche, able to recharge their electric in less than half the time

The TESLA battery is already an environmental disaster to begin with. Edmunds had to have it replaced within the first year of testing their TESLA. Plus, EDMUNDS also noted 30% efficiency loss due to charging.

Fastcharging the very carcinogenic TESLA batteries will screw them up even faster. Plus, in Connecticut the charging stations are juiced by the worst possible source of electricity.

Anyway. I stopped TESLA three years in a row now in Connecticut....and I will do so again during the next legislative session.
