Tesla supercharger station opens at Delaware Gap Travel Plaza in Knowlton Township
KNOWLTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – Knowlton Township has announced the opening of Warren County’s first Tesla Supercharger Station at the Delaware Gap Travel Plaza, located at 19 Simpson Road, in the Columbia section of Knowlton Township, according to Knowlton Township Mayor Adele Starrs.
The eight operational, state-of-the-art charging stations offer the fastest superchargers available nationally for Tesla electric vehicles. With a single, 15-minute charge, drivers can travel for an additional 200 miles. Plugging in is simple and charging is automatic; there is no need to swipe a credit card, Starrs said.
“Knowlton Township is proud to be the home of this Tesla electric charging station in Warren County. Not only does this technology provide drivers with the infrastructure needed for an alternative to gasoline, it offers those traveling to and from the surrounding metropolitan areas another reason to visit our beautiful town. We are proud to be a town that looks to the future and supports the businesses that call Knowlton home,” Starrs said.
Warren County Commissioner Jim Kern, who will attend the grand opening, commented, “I commend Mr. Milrom, Mayor Starrs and Knowlton Township on this exciting announcement. Warren County is committed to electric vehicles and expanding our infrastructure in every corner of our county. With strong local leadership along cooperation with our State and Federal partners we will be able to achieve this goal.”
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the charging station is scheduled for December 17 at 1:00 p.m. at the Delaware Travel Plaza. All are invited to attend to view the charging stations as well as sample the offerings of the restaurants located at the Travel Center including Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks, Sbarra Pizza, and Auntie Anne’s.
