Starting summer 2015, guests will be able to charge their Tesla Model S vehicle at Mohegan Sun. In addition to the six standard electric car charging stations currently operating, eight new Tesla chargers in total will be added.
Quick charging, High Power Wall Connectors will be available for use at Ascend and Soar parking areas for Mohegan Sun guests to utilize. The Model S offers 270 miles of range on a single charge, so the High Power Wall Connector, which adds 58 miles of range each hour, can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours. Universal electric vehicle charging stations will be installed for use at the Summer Valet and Hotel Valet as well.
Mohegan Sun currently has six standard electric car chargers installed and operating on property. Two standard chargers are available for use on the third level of the Indian Summer Garage. The Hotel valet is equipped with one standard electric car charger and one High Power Tesla charger. Both the Sky Valet and Summer Valet feature the same High Power Tesla charging unit.
