Tesla Opens First Supercharger In Alaska, A Milestone For Fast-Charging Infrastructure in the US

Tesla now has Superchargers in Alaska. A 4-stall high-speed Supercharger was installed in Soldotna, Alaska, a town on the Seward Peninsula, about 150 miles south of Anchorage. This means that Tesla now operates Superchargers in 49 of the 50 US states, with Hawaii still lacking one (unless the rumors of a secret station in Lanai are true). This charger in Alaska will most likely be used by Alaskan Tesla owners, as driving to Alaska with an EV is very difficult due to the lack of charging infrastructure in Northern British Columbia and the Yukon Territories. However, Superchargers connecting the West Coast to Alaska are likely in the works. Hopefully this Supercharger station will stand up to Alaska’s extreme weather and persuade Tesla to install more stations in The Last Frontier.
