    Supercharger - Valle d'Aosta (largest SC site to date)

    The Supercharger in Valle d'Aosta (Italy) will be the biggest in the world with 14 stalls.

    How can I know if there will be an opening event?

    Btw Valle d'Aosta produces 100% of the electricity from renewable source (hydropower).

    That's really cool - and Aosta is such a neat place. If it were me, however, I think I would have used the title "Biggest Supercharger So Far".

    Regardless - always happy to hear more progress with SpCs in Italy.

    Um... why? You cannot possibly convince me that there are more Tesla's crossing the Alps than there are going up the 5 in CA where we only have 6 (!) stalls.

    I don't know why..
    I can just say that Aosta is in a mountain place, a crossroad between Italy, France and Switzerland. Many people pass through.
    And wealthy Swiss people pass by to visit Italy.
    Maybe that's part of the reason. And maybe this will just be the first of many 14 stalls superchargers.

    Nice, looks like they're installing a huge battery too. Will this mean this supercharger can promise 100% solar charging?

    This is the first Supercharger I've ever seen. I thought that the "white closets" were just standard parts of the SC. Do you think they might be battery storage units? That would be great!
    No sign of solar roof so far, but it looks promising.

    Yeah those are batteries, and the roof, yes, is solar. Identical with other solar canopy superchargers

    yes, because if there is anything California is lacking besides water, it is most definitely SuperCharger stalls. Lets not dwell on the total number of stalls that there is in this one station in Italy compared to the total number of stalls at all stations in proximity of I5.

    Actually, EU has a much denser coverage of SpC than CA. Oh, and something like 20,000 Tesla's are on CA roads. Just sayin
