Tesla Motors ( TSLA) is expanding its network of fast-charging stations nationwide. In a statement, Tesla said it is tripling the number of solar-powered supercharger stations in the country by the end of June so that Model S sedan drivers can travel from coast to coast. Using the supercharger network will recharge a vehicle to 50% of its battery capacity within 20 to 30 minutes. Tesla founder Elon Musk said the stations will always be free to charge the large-battery version of the Model S. Owners of the smaller-battery version will have to pay for the option to use the stations. According to Musk, the company's goal of 100 stations by 2015 is now on pace to happen twice as fast as the company originally planned.
