Tesla is currently building two large 40-stall Supercharger stations in the U.S. and TMC members gave as a look this week at progress on the projects.
TMC member Fiver‘s photos show a project roughly halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco in Kettleman City, Calif. that appears to be near completion. Along with 40 Superchargers covered by solar canopies, the site will also feature a lounge with restrooms, tables, chairs and sofas.
According to Fiver’s post:
“I swung by the location yesterday afternoon (11/8/17) on my way from SF down to LA. Took a ton of pics. The guy I talked to on site said there was supposed to be a big inspection at the site this weekend by Tesla. There was a TON of activity going on, workers wiring stuff up, pavers doing their thing, etc. The guy said he thinks they should be good to open in the next week or so. (Disclaimer, he was just a worker, no inside knowledge) He mentioned he hasn’t seen the inside of the lounge personally, but knew there was a ton of people inside working on “wiring up all the coffee makers and whatnot”.
The same station was captured at night by TMC member jgrgnt.
According to jgrgnt’s post:
“Stopped by tonight, 11/10 around 6pm. Outside, crews were sweeping up the concrete surfaces and installing covers for the lighting around the perimeter of each solar canopy. Inside, a crew was arranging all the Tesla swag onto shelves and racks. There are monitors and a Powerwall setup as well. All the signage is lit up, as were most of the supercharger pedestals. The landscaping looked done. It’s an impressive, well-lit station, though it took us a while to find it as it sits just off the main road.”
“Seems like it’s really, really close to completion.”
Photos from TMC Member Mark Z show the station located halfway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas in Baker, Calif. is beginning to take form. The site is now paved with solar canopies and Superchargers installed.
The site is located behind a gas station/truck stop and it’s unclear if it will also feature a Tesla lounge.
Tesla confirmed last month that it is currently building the largest charging station in Europe, a new 42-stall Supercharger station in Norway.
