Tesla Has Opened Largest US Supercharger Station with 56 V3 Stalls in Firebaugh, CA

Tesla's Supercharging network is one of the company's most important advantages. Tesla recognized from the start that fast and widely available charging would be key to building a shared Tesla ecosystem that would allow owners to swap out their gas-powered cars for electric ones. The company has invested in an extensive network of Supercharging destinations for convenience and to quell any basic fears of “range anxiety.”

In mid-September, it was discovered that Tesla was building a huge Supercharger station at a new location in Firebaugh, California. According to the description, the location was to contain 56 V3 stalls, which earned it the title of the largest Tesla Supercharger in the United States.

Today, @TeslaOwnersEBay/Twitter shared the information that the Firebaugh V3 Supercharger is already in operation.

In addition to Supercharging, there will also be a convenience store and restaurant. The Unclassified Conditional Use Permit Application states:

"The proposed convenience store and fuel pumps will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The EV charging stations will be operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

V3 Superchargers are visually similar to V2, but instead of a V2 DC cable and a CCS cable for Model 3, a thinner liquid-cooled CCS cable is installed. V3 allows for charging power up to 250 kW, while V2 chargers are 150 kW at their last stage of expansion.
