Tesla & North Platte Runza To Bring 8 Superchargers To Nebraska

Tesla and North Platte Runza are bringing eight new Superchargers to Nebraska, The North Platte Telegraph reports. Josh Catlett’s family has owned the south Runza on Dewey and Leota Street for just over two decades. Catlett said he reached out to Tesla around three years ago, and although it took a bit of time, the company is now installing a Supercharging station at the south Runza as well as two other Runza locations in Nebraska.

In total, he said, there will be eight Superchargers. “From what I’m hearing from Tesla, this is the fastest setup they’ve done so far.”

Installation started on June 14, and Catlett said they will go online in a couple of days. Considering that I’m writing this article four days later, those Superchargers are most likely already online. Catlett added that the city has been working well with him and that Tesla considered Runza a good location as far as traffic is concerned.

“The city of North Platte has been super good about having everything ready.

“Tesla just reached out to Runza and had a couple locations they thought were good traffic areas, and we were one.”

Tesla told Catlett that the Supercharger should fully charge one of the brand’s EVs in 30 minutes or less.

“It’s a perfect time to charge a car, grab a burger and fries, and enjoy being out of the car for a little bit and then go cruising again wherever the next destination is.

“It’s going to be great. Down the road, I’ll see if I can get a good deal on a Tesla, but right now we’ll just go with this.”

As part of its mission to accelerate the transition to sustainability, Tesla is rapidly expanding its Supercharging network. In China, the company recently celebrated its milestone of 35,000 Superchargers. It won’t be long before they reach their 50,000th Supercharging station … and I think it would be cool if that one was in Louisiana.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
