A newspaper says Tesla Motors is building a supercharger station in the Sierra Nevada north of Lake Tahoe where drivers of the company’s electric cars can recharge along Interstate 80. Tesla officials previously announced plans to build a station near Truckee, Calif., about 30 miles southwest of Reno but hasn’t confirmed an exact location or opening date. The Sierra Sun reported Thursday that six charging bays with “Tesla” labels have been delivered to a cordoned off site in Truckee and construction equipment has been assembled behind a supermarket. Assistant Truckee town manager Alex Terrazas confirmed Tesla had pulled required permits and paid appropriate fees for the station. Tesla will pay the Truckee Donner Public Utility District to supply electricity to the station as part of a development agreement, said Steven Poncelet, conservation manager for the district.
