    Certainly looks like a standard half dozen Supercharger installation!

    I received a contract to sell my condo in the Houston inner loop. I will need to move to an apartment until my new condo is constructed 2 years from now. I am having difficulty figuring out how I can live in an apartment with a Chevrolet Volt and a Tesla Model S. Does anybody have recommendations for charging options? I prefer to live near my current location.

    Do a lot of shopping at the HEB on Buffalo Speedway or Alabama and charge your Model S at the CHAdeMO while your there?

    IF you are resolved that an apartment is the route you need to go, Number one Option would be to enlist a realtor who could assist you locating an apartment that has charging WITH a specific unit or parking space that has access to an 50 amp outlet (or maybe an apartment/condo with a garage?)

    Or perhaps you do a long term (2 year) lease/rent on a house?
    I have an aunt in North Houston (inside the Loop), and she is planning to move out of her house.
    Might not be exactly close to where you are looking to remain though.

    I have looked @ plugshare.com for Houston, and there are lots of places to plug in.
    So you could use a CHAdeMO adaptor or the other Option which brings me to...

    You may not even have to worry about charging your Tesla at home (much longer), as it appears Houston will soon have its very own Supercharger.
    You might be getting one of those memos from Elon though.

    Charging the Volt is another thing.
    Maybe have your office building (where you work) install an outlet?

    Actually the Volt is no problem because I can operate it with the ICE or use a 110 volt outlet to charge it. I don't live far from the Galleria and can also use Tesla chargers there.

    As we like to travel a lot, we prefer having a high rise or mid rise building where we can close the door and forget about our residence.

    With all this rain we've been having in Houston, I finally realized my windshield wipers make more noise than they should. A creaking noise, not an aged rubber blade on glass squeak. My 2001 Ford Ranger have quieter wipers that my Model S. Any one else have this problem?
