Space Foundation Offers Tesla Destination Charging Station

Written by: developer

The Space Foundation has added Tesla Destination Charging to the parking lot of its World Headquarters and Discovery Center in Colorado Springs with the installation of two charging stations, available for free to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Destination charging adds nearly 60 miles of range to Tesla vehicles in an hour.

Nearly all of the Tesla Destination Charging Stations in Colorado are located at hotels and inns. The Space Foundation’s is the only Tesla Destination Charging Station in Colorado located at a space and science attraction.

“The Space Foundation’s location just off of Garden of the Gods Road, makes it an ideal place for this service, not only for visitors to our Discovery Center, but also for Tesla owners who work in the adjacent business parks,” said Space Foundation Chief Executive Officer Elliot Pulham, who personally contributed a portion of the installation costs. “Providing this service is consistent with our organization’s green philosophy, and we believe that Tesla owners would enjoy visiting our Discovery Center while charging.”

The Space Foundation World Headquarters and Discovery Center is located at 4425 Arrowswest Drive, Colorado Springs. The Discovery Center is open to the public, and is the region’s only space, science and technology attraction. It features interactive educational exhibits, space artifacts in its El Pomar Space Gallery, the Northrop Grumman Science Center featuring Science On a Sphere® and the Lockheed Martin Space Education Center.

The chargers were installed by Electric Service of Colorado, based in Woodland Park.
