Tesla to open second NC charging station in Rocky Mount

Electric luxury carmaker Tesla is opening a second charging station in North Carolina next week as part of a national network of Superchargers that will dispense free electricity to Tesla customers.

The California automaker is opening the new charging station at a hotel in Rocky Mount and already has one at a shopping center in Burlington.

In the next two years, Tesla plans about 10 such facilities in North Carolina to supply current at 120 kilowatts, enough juice to fill up a battery pack in 45 minutes and provide for 265 miles of driving range.

The company has 32 stations in the United States and is planning a national infrastructure network for Tesla drivers. The facilities are not open to owners of competing plug-in electric cars, such as the Chevy Volt or Nissan Leaf.
