Tesla Building Charging Station In Elko
Tesla Motors is building its huge battery factory near Reno, but is also leaving its mark in other Northern Nevada towns.
In Elko, for instance, where a six-stall charging station is under construction in the Elko Junction Shopping Center. The Tesla charging station, which resembles a set of gas pumps, will be hooked up to a transformer powered by NV Energy.
The company’s website touts the stations, called “superchargers” as the fastest charging stations in the world. A full charge, taking about 30 minutes, will get their Model S 170 miles before another charge is needed.
Three stations along Interstate 80 in Nevada are to be built this year.
