They're getting to be very common at nice hotels/resorts and even some mediocre interstate chains.

Very nice Sheraton in Jacksonville, FL has several Tesla charging stations in the front row.

8 stalls on an interstate is like standard, it's more to make sure someone has a spot, than it is thinking the town is filled with Teslas is actually going to use them (I never use superchargers in KC except like once just cause).

Also, would gently point out when I mean Tesla charger, I mean like the little guy in your garage, not the supercharger, which are the big white and red ones. The little ones for your garage are more akin to the public pole ones you see in most places. The higher power DC ones like the supercharger are different that those chargers.

Right, I meant the tlb charger in the home garage and then the tesla-branded superchargers out and about. 

I saw no cars using any of the stalls at either supercharger setup.

And holy eff, maybe there were multiple totaling 20 or I didn't notice how massive the setup was, but I guess there were 20 stalls here!

That is not uncommon in westcoast areas. Watch for stories around thanksgiving about their not being enough charging places. They build them for the extremes.

I guess it's like stalls at gas stations, not all of those are occupied at all times and you build them more the future demand and the high demand times not for what is needed like 90% of the time.

FWIW, anytime I look at my tesla app for nearby it almost always looks like what I just pulled up right now:

Mission KS: 7/8 available
Olathe KS, 8/8 available
Independence MO: 5/6 available
KCMO: 7/8 available

electric companies also underwrite the costs of some of these because they're getting sweet government $

Real-life Elon Musk could easily be a character in Silicon Valley without any exaggeration to his personality.
