Thanks to the sharp eyes of West Virginia EV advocate and PlugInSites reader, Rick Rohn, we know that a new Tesla Supercharger is being built in Morgantown, WV.
When Rick stopped by the Sheetz store on Earl L. Core Rd., he spotted the construction at the north end of the parking lot. I contacted the City of Morgantown and learned that the contractors applied for a permit to build eight V3 Supercharger stalls.
This will be the second Tesla Supercharging site in Morgantown. A Supercharger opened at a Sheetz about four miles south west of the new site on September 10, 2017.
It’s wonderful that Morgantown is getting another Supercharger. What West Virginia really needs are some CCS & CHAdeMO fast chargers. According to the Department of Energy Alternative Fuels Data Center, West Virginia has only two non-Tesla DC Fast Chargers in the entire state. Wyoming and Alaska have more!
Electrify America have announced that they plan to install fast chargers in West Virginia in an upcoming expansion. That would be Almost Heaven!
