Tesla Motors charges into Wisconsin with stations

The effort to build charging stations that can quickly charge electric Tesla Motors vehicles is underway in Wisconsin.

Christopher Allessi, who leads the Wisconsin Tesla

Owners Club, said Friday that the St. Louis car maker plans to build five supercharging stations along interstate corridors in Wisconsin.

The first is scheduled to open in the next few weeks at a Culver’s in Mauston, about 75 miles northwest of Madison along Interstate 90-94. A station at East Towne Mall near the food court in Madison could be open by the end of the month while others are planned for Pleasant Prairie near Kenosha; Onalaska, just east of La Crosse and in Eau Claire, Allessi said.

“The idea is to get as much distance out of our cars as possible,” said Allessi, who has been helping Tesla test the six-kiosk charging station in Mauston. “This will allow you to do more road trips.”

It can take 55 to 60 hours to fully charge a Tesla vehicle on a 120-volt system and five to seven hours on a 240-volt system. A supercharger can cut charging time to 20 to 40 minutes, he said.
