Plop another dot on the Tesla Supercharger Map, Oregon is getting its first Supercharger station tomorrow according to Sustainable Business Oregon.

The California-based maker of the Model S electric car will open its first supercharger station in Oregon on Thursday. The charging station will be located in Woodburn, 255 N. Arney Road near Elmer’s Restaurant, and will expand Tesla’s I-5 corridor network. Up until now, the nearest supercharger stations were in Centralia and Burlington, Wash. A ribbon cutting is planned for 10 a.m.

The new station is between Portland and Salem on the way South to Corvallis and Eugene. Even with Tesla’s gratuitous radius mapping, it still doesn’t quite close the Western Coast loop. Doing a quick Google Maps directions, it is about 570 miles of highway between the Sacremento/Folsom Supercharger and the new South Portland station. Tesla expects to close the loop this Fall.
