The whole point is that it now technically is possible (thanks to Elon Musk) to have your Tesla Model S 85 kWh battery fully charged within 1 hour when using a Supercharger. And that is just super, fantastic and fabulous at the same time.
Suppose that in the near future (2014) there are 1,000 people (in a certain city) who have bought a Tesla Model S with a 85 kWh battery. And this number of people will keep on growing for a very long time, as Tesla Motors will continue to release more EV models (with high capacity batteries) in the coming years. And battery capacity is very likely to increase every year.
Suppose that these people join each other and decide to establish a certain "Tesla EV Club". This Club will look after the interests of the people (members) who own a Tesla Model S with a 85 kWh battery pack. And the members will pay an annual member fee to their club (which will not be very much). Owners of a Tesla Model X and all the coming Tesla EV models are welcome as well by the way. Not everybody has to join the club, everyone is free to choose for themselves.
Suppose that this Club would ask Elon Musk to sell one Supercharger to the Club. Would that be possible?
If this would be possible, what kind of a situation can be created with the Supercharger? Well, I assume that the Club could create a Solar-powered Tesla Supercharging facility within their own city to be used by their club members. The investment should not be a very big problem, as there will be plenty of Tesla EV owners who surely will like to be a member of this club. So, financially this idea is very likely to be possible.
What will this Solar-powered Tesla Supercharging facility look like? How many charging spots should there be? How should this facility be managed?
Keep in mind that nobody should make any money (profit) from this facility. All the benefit should be for the members!!! Charging at this facility (in your own city) should be much cheaper and faster than charging at home. And that is the idea behind this topic.
I would like to see if anyone has any vision/view/idea to add to this thread.
