Earlier this month, the Oak Creek Plan Commission approved plans to install Tesla Supercharger electric vehicle charging stations in the Meijer parking lot in Drexel Town Sqaure. The plans call for 10 Supercharger stalls to be created in the northeast corner of the parking lot near Water Street Brewery.

Tesla Superchargers allow Tesla electric cars and SUVs to charge at a rate significantly higher than what could be achieved with standard home power outlets. Telsa has been blanketing the globe with these Supercharger stations to make cross-country travel possible. Some Tesla vehicles can go over 300 miles without needing a charge.

Currently, the closest Supercharger station is at the Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets Mall in Kenosha. Other Wisconsin Supercharger locations are in Madison, Sheboygan, Mauston, Eau Claire, Wausau and Onalaska with a Green Bay location opening shortly. Additional Wisconsin locations are planned for later this year.
