According to The verge, the notice comes just before the peak holiday travel season, when an estimated 100 million Americans will be on the road to pay visits to their various family or friends.

For Tesla drivers, in particular, it is quite common for delays at certain clog points in routes that may be having fewer supercharging options. And the problem might get worse should Tesla remain true on its plans to open up its network to non-Tesla EV owners.

Tesla’s solution to combat congestion presently is to help in offering free off-peak charging. This deal is only available at 75 supercharging destinations out of about 1,400 Tesla Supercharger locations in the US.

Most of the Eligible Stations are Clustered in California

Most of the eligible stations are clustered in California and account for over half of all Tesla registrations in the U.S between the period April and June 2021. Long lines are frequent at the state’s Supercharger stations, where times wait can outdo two hours.

On the East Coast, only three stations in Pennsylvania are eligible and are located along an almost 200-mile route that leads to New York City.

Drivers that are making use of this route often hail from Pittsburgh, Columbus, Cincinnati, and more hitting these “slower” V2 charging stations.
