Princeton Tesla Supercharger construction begins

Tesla supercharger

The Tesla Supercharger map has long shown proposed locations along British Columbia’s Crowsnest Highway (Highway 3), the southern route linking Vancouver and Lethbridge, Alberta.

Tesla owners are now one step closer to being able to drive the popular scenic route as construction of the first Supercharger in Princeton, B.C. has begun.

According to Greg, who posted the photo to Twitter, construction is already well underway in the parking lot of a small retail center, Princeton Plaza, at 136 Tapton Avenue.

When complete, the station will feature 8 stalls of Tesla’s latest V3 technology, capable of charging Tesla vehicles at up to 250kW.

Hopefully this is a sign that other Superchargers along the Crowsnest Highway route in Osoyoos, Grand Forks, Castlegar, Creston, and Fernie will also soon begin construction, giving drivers an easier way to travel in the southern part of the province.
