Real-time Tesla Supercharger Notifications


If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly checking to see when a new Tesla Supercharger emerges either through the official Tesla Motors Supercharger page or the Interactive Tesla Supercharger Map listed here. This repeated and very manual act of checking got me thinking – What if I could somehow receive a real-time notification as Tesla Superchargers come online?

Even my best web searches returned no such method or app. that would report on real-time Tesla Supercharger notifications, so, I decided to create one myself.

Tesla Supercharger Notification

Supercharger EmailTesla Motors lists the details of each Supercharger including its address, number of stall, as well as notable interests nearby. Unfortunately, Tesla does not include a date on when the Supercharger has come online so there’s no way to tell whether it’s a new addition or has been around for awhile.

Using a technique called web scraping, I decided to programmatically check results on the Tesla Motors Supercharger every hour and detect whether there’s been any new Tesla Superchargers added to the page.
