    Good location right across the street from the westfarms mall. There is plenty to do there during business hours and it is not sketchy late at night.

    To those living in CT and the Northeast, what will this supercharger be most useful for in terms of travel? I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to the highways in that area.

    Yes, this is awesome news. The first two superchargers in CT were on I-95 ("no one drives on I-95, it is too crowded there") and one was added on the Merritt Parkway a few miles from I-95. This supercharger opens up the I-84 route to/through NYC from New England
    (or vise versa) instead of the more congested "coastal" roads.

    It opens options given the congestion in the area. I regularly travel between (west of) Boston and Philadelphia.

    It may also help those going from the NYC area to/from Vermont...

    Allows 60kWh models to easily take the inland route to Boston from NYC, particularly in the winter
    Opens the Tappan Zee and Beacon-Newburgh bridges as viable options for crossing the Hudson when traveling to New England
    It's a small step to opening travel to VT from CT and NY City without having to detour through Albany.

    In real-world situations, one could get from there to, say, Bellows Falls and back on a full charge. So, it's a start for accessing northern New England and great that is, but it's only a start.
    Once it's up, I certainly could get from Hartford to my uncle's in _______________ and back without having to tap him for access to his expensive VT electricity, but that's a moot point from here in Alaska

    Awesome news; the more Superchargers go in the more I want a Model S.
    I may have to buy a Tesla now. Freshman at Trinity. Fill up at home here in Maine then again in West Hartford.
    With Auburn West Springfiield also coming online may try for the 60kw pack?
    Anyone on here in 60kw Model S?
    Tesla is really covering Southern New England really well!!!!!!!!!!!

    No insight but hopeful it will be prior to turkey day. Gives them one month to compete construction and deal with inspection sign offs.

    Is this site actually under construction as it indicates on the map ( Superchargers ), or is that a mistake? Is there anybody within easy driving range of the location who would be interested in shooting some pix for the community?
