It took a while but the Tesla Supercharger in Maple Ridge is now open, making it the first Supercharger station east of the Port Mann bridge and north of the Fraser River in the Lower Mainland.
Construction of the Maple Ridge Supercharger began back in September 2022 in the parking lot of Maple Ridge Square shopping center at 22441 Dewdney Trunk Road. As it often the case construction was completed quickly, but the site sat idle for several months as Tesla waiting for the final grid connection from BC Hydro.
That finally happened this week and on Wednesday the Supercharger went live, according to a tweet from the official Tesla Charging Twitter account.

The Maple Ridge Supercharger features 12 V3 stalls, and is the first of two Superchargers planned for the Lower Mainland north of the Fraser River. Another Supercharger is slated to be built about 25km to the east in Mission. Based on an accidental leak from Tesla that Supercharger should be built at Outlook Village at 31831 Lougheed Hwy.
