A group of Tesla owners and enthusiasts gathered to socialize and have an unofficial ribbon cutting to inaugurate the new Supercharger in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on May 22, 2016.
About 16 Tesla cars were there including a Signature Roadster that can’t use the Superchargers. The driver of that car charged up at one of the Tesla destination charging stations at the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey.

The Harrisburg Supercharger quietly went into service on May 9, 2016 and is located beside the UPS Store at 3915 Union Deposit Rd, in the Union Square Shopping Center near where I-81 and I-83 intersect on the northeast side of the city. (link to map)
This Supercharger will make is much easier to cross the state on the Pennsylvania Turnpike from Allentown to Somerset. Before Harrisburg opened, you had to jump a 209 mile gap between Superchargers unless you detoured south via Newark and Hagerstown.
Another Supercharger is being built in Laurel, Maryland. Stay tuned for updates on the opening of that location.
