RefrigiWear makes some of the world's toughest, most dependable garments for protection from the cold
This shows some final work being done at Springfield Illinois Tesla Superchargers before they went operational recently. Last part shows stations at night with only 1 TESLA logo glowing – during day today – that same station had glowing logo. Previously I wasn’t sure if any were ready for use – assumed maybe one that was lit would be in operation.
I did talk to one member of crew – really good conversation. Educated him best I could on Tesla Motors and Model S. Unfortunately he didn’t have or wouldn’t give me any information on when chargers were going live – they are now fully operational. Worker stated crew normally built cell towers.
Springfield Illinois Tesla Superchargers are located Interstate I-72 Exit 96 MacArthur Blvd. A bit further down road is Interstate 55 – which is a major North South route in United States. If you miss I-72 connection from I-55 – which is easy to do – you will have to drive through town on Sixth Street – make a left at light after going under underpass by shopping center – this puts you on Stanford overpass – drive until you reach light at MacArthur Blvd – make left turn – continue until you see Scheels on right.
Disclaimer – I am a Tesla Motors stock owner. Unfortunately I didn’t have near the amount of money I wanted to invest in this company. But I do own a few shares.
Information on shopping and Level 2 electric car charging stations needs updated on page linked below.
Closest Level 2 EV charging stations are at Hy-Vee in Springfield Illinois. Located on same road ( S. MacArthur Blvd. ) as Tesla Superchargers. These Level 2 chargers are just a short drive from Superchargers. These are ChargePoint chargers – require a ChargePoint subscription.
There is one Level 2 charger located across street from TGI Friday’s in Springfield. Charger is in front of Illinois Green Industry Association. It is free to use.
Nissan dealership listed as having Level 2 is correct. But that location is often ICED by gasoline vehicles. If you have ChargePoint subscription Hy-Vee charging stations are closer to Superchargers.
Memorial Medical Center parking garage in downtown Springfield Illinois also offers PEP level 2 charging stations. These are not free – require payment or subscription.
Illinois State Fair fairgrounds has a Schneider Electric Level 2 charger behind Illinois Dept. of Agriculture building. Not sure if public use is permitted.
Illinois Governor’s mansion in downtown Springfield Illinois also has chargers – again I’m not sure on public availability.
Springfield Electric on Ninth Street has a Level 2 charger. When I recorded it – it was secured and locked.
