Tesla has opened its largest Supercharger stations featuring 40 Superchargers in California. The stations are located in Kettleman City and Baker. The purpose of these stations is to serve heavily traveled routes between San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. The company has also built a private customer lounge at the Kettleman City.
The supercharger stations have also got solar parking and a Tesla Powerpack system for storing the solar energy generated and supplying the 40 superchargers. Supercharger network is a system of 480-volt DC fast-charging stations built by Tesla Inc. to allow longer journeys for their all-electric manufactured vehicles (Model S, 3 and X), through the quick charging of the vehicle’s battery packs.
The company began building the network in 2012 and as of this month, there are around its 1040 stations present globally. For the adoption of electric vehicles the presence of a wide charging infrastructure is necessary, therefore the company plans to build more of these stations in coming times.
