This August Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe installed 14 Tesla Superchargers, becoming the first location on the South Shore to offer the expedited service for electric vehicles.
“We were engaged by Tesla directly at the end of last year for a supercharging station,” said Alisa Mirabal, director of marketing for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe.
“It’s a model that does not increase our electricity bill in any form,” explained Mirabal. “It’s through the partnership between Tesla and the power company.”
After a couple of months of installation, the 14 charging stations went live in the casino’s parking garage on Aug. 21. It takes just under an hour for guests of the Hard Rock to charge their Tesla vehicle to full capacity. Depending on the make and model, as well as factors like temperature, elevation change, speed and battery condition, an electric vehicle at full charge could go anywhere from around 100 to 350 miles.
