As Tesla’s Superchargers continue to grow with new Supercharger stations every week, the company is continuing to encourage business owners to host their own Supercharger sites to help attract electric vehicle (EV) owners.
The Tesla Charging account recently asked for new Supercharger hosts in Los Angeles, California, seeking applicants in Westwood, Beverly Hills and Century City.
The application window opened on October 6, with the submission deadline set for November 5, 2021. Businesses approved will need to agree on terms by February 25, 2022. Businesses need at minimum 8 parking stalls available for Superchargers on site.

Tesla says hosting a station would bring a natural flow of customers to businesses, with built-in navigation to the Supercharger from inside EV owners’ vehicles.
In addition, the company adds that the installation process is fast and flexible while giving business owners the chance to join the largest fast-charging network in the world.
With California home to Tesla’s Fremont factory, the state is also home to one of the biggest populations of Tesla owners as well. Supercharger site hosts can alleviate pressure on the company’s standalone Supercharger stations.
While Tesla will first begin opening its Supercharger network to other automakers in the Netherlands, the company has detailed plans to do so around the world in the not-so-distant future.
A 1,000-mile road trip in August featuring Tesla’s Superchargers next to Electrify America chargers and a gas car showed how efficient the Supercharger network already is – and it’s only going to grow as Tesla continues to encourage land owners and business owners to host their own.
