As promised Tesla has launched a new voting system where owners can help select the locations of future Supercharger stations. The voting launched today and includes locations around the world, including 17 sites across Canada.
According to the Supercharger Voting page, the voting will run for a 3 month period, during which time only Tesla account owners will be allowed to vote on the proposed locations.
After logging in to your Tesla account you are then allowed to cast a total of 5 votes, but limited to voting only once per location.
What is not clear is how the winners will be selected. It could be that Tesla will look into adding a Supercharger for the top 5 locations per country, or they could just limit it to the top 10 locations around the world with the most number of votes.
At the time of publication, the current leader after just over 1 hour of voting is Lake Okeechobee, Florida with over 550 votes.
The top Canadian location is Ottawa in 28th place, with over 220 votes for a proposed location on Coventry Road.
Based on our suggestion on Twitter three locations on Vancouver Island are also included in Port Alberni (89th), Ucluelet (40th), and Courtenay (82nd).
Also included on the list of potential sites is what would be the most northernmost Supercharger in Canada if it is successful in High Level, Alberta. It is currently in 124th place with 79 votes.
Along with voting, owners can also suggest a new Supercharger location for the next voting cycle.
