Tesla announced earlier this year that they would be building larger supercharging stations, and the first has now opened in Kettleman City, California. 

The location has 40 stalls for charging with solar canopies over the parking spots. This provides shade for the cars while generating power to offset the power used to charge the cars.

Outside you will find outside seating with plenty of room for the kids to play, as well as a designated pet area. The lounge is accessible 24/7 to Tesla owners. When you arrive, a building code appears on your screen.

Inside, you will see that the lounge is rather large, and features small cubicle chairs if you need privacy to work, as well as areas to hang out and meet fellow Tesla owners.

There is a coffee counter as well as merchandise that you can buy and kiosks to learn more about their home power generation and storage options.

Of course, there was already a Model 3 there after it opened.

Hopefully more and more of these pop up on the larger interstate routes across the country in the coming months. This would completely change the charging experience. Many superchargers are conveniently located near restaurants, grocery stores and malls, but others are in hotel parking lots or in sketchy areas of town where you really do not want to stop late at night.

Local TV station KFSN did a piece on the grand opening and provided video:

 

 

Who else is excited? Now let's get those Model 3s delivered!
