Fake news!

Please be a little dilligent in ensuring we have good sources before we “place a dot on the map”. There is a new supercharger listed for “Volda, Norway” at the moment that seems to be fantasy.

For blue dot:

  • Public records for building permit or adding/expanding local transformers with reference to Tesla supercharger needs
  • Information directly from landowner/business owner where the supercharger will come (and even these are sometimes confused and do not know the difference between a supercharger and a destination charger, a Tesla site or a Ionity site or other charging provider - do ask confirmation questions!

For under construction:

  • Pictures or first hand reports from someone you trust. Pictures/description should show/refer to Tesla equipment on site. Just an excavator and a hole in the ground can be many things.

For open:

  • Picture or first hand report from someone who has charged on the new charger. Beware that sometimes the power is turned off again until a later date.

So now: Can someone please either present good information on the Volda, Norway site or remove it again?

Also in my opinion the “Power (kW)” value of the superchargers in permit or contruction-status should not be set to an expected value but left empty. As soon as the the supercharger is online and available in the in-car map we can take over the value from there. If you have a good reason to enter a value beforehand you should fill out the “Editor Notes”. This does not concern Urban Chargers and Superchargers V3.
If nobody has an opposing opinion I will start to remove power values form permit/construction sites in Europe soon.
