The AACA Museum is working with Tesla to install a dedicated charging station that will include two (2) Tesla High Power wall connectors with 100 amps of a single phase power per unit and one (1) Clipper Creek HCS-40 connector - up to 40 amps of single phase power which can be used by any electric vehicles on the road. As part of this agreement, Tesla charging stations allow Model S owners to travel for free between cities along well-traveled highways in North America, Europe and Asia. These charging stations are strategically placed to allow owners to drive from station to station with minimal stops. There are currently 112 similar stations in North America and the AACA Museum is proud to become one of the newest locations. Other charging facilities are located near amenities like roadside diners, cafes and shopping centers. This allows owners to stop for a quick meal or other activity, such as a stroll through a current Museum exhibit, while their vehicle is charging.
The AACA Museum has received the initial equipment from Tesla that will be needed for two of the stations and they are awaiting the arrival of the equipment for the third station. Once all materials are onsite, the AACA Museum will be contracting with an electrician to do the installation required for all three stations. The official opening date for the charger stations will be announced in the near future.
