    Supercharger - Jacksonville, FL - Wilson Blvd

    As of 4/25, transformer has been installed atop the pad shown in the pix above (I think I got it right this time :>)). Plastic bags still atop pedestals, so likely not yet commissioned. I didn't have a chance to stop and see if a meter is inside the cabinet.

    Working my way down to <200 Wh / mi lifetime

    TACC speed setpoint automatically increases

    I do NOT have it set for "speed limit" There are a few places in town where while merging on to freeway from ramp or feeder lanes the TACC speeds up by itself - very annoying! In one place it speeds up before encountering the actual increased speed limit sign, triggering my "5mph over" chime...

    Supercharger - Jacksonville, FL - Wilson Blvd

    My mistake - I was fooled by a new transformer that appears to have been installed nearby for the WaWa around the time of the initial SC work. I kept meaning to return here to correct my earlier post but others beat me to it. As of 3/25/22, still no transformer.

    Supercharger - Jacksonville, FL - Wilson Blvd

    Transformer and utility meter are installed, but it slipped my mind at the time to check if the meter is energized. Rough inspection has been passed but final not yet scheduled.

    FPL Advertisement about EV charging

    My guess is that the FP&L offer is designed to shift load to off peak hours. I imagine that having a bunch of EV chargers hitting the grid late afternoons early evenings during very hot weather is or will soon start to be a problem in some areas. Delaying EV charging until late night or very...

    Battery capacity for Tesla X not enough

    "Slow" is in the eye of the beholder...I put 168k miles on a Chevy Bolt before getting an M3. At 80% SOC the 3 is often still charging as fast or faster than the Bolt's absolute max (55kW).

    Supercharger - Jacksonville, FL - Wilson Blvd

    Pedestals and converters are set but I haven't yet seen a transformer there.

    Found a quicker way to charge at home instead of using a standard outlet.

    Be diligent before buying Rheem hybrid heat pump water heater...lots of recent noise complaints online...seems latest Gen 5 units are much noisier than earlier units. I'm fortunate to have an earlier Rheem hpwh...quiet, efficient and free cooling and dehumidification.

    Can we manually set the charging speed to a lower rate in a Tesla Wall Connector?

    During months when I drive rideshare (Uber / Lyft) full time I would really really like and benefit from a rate plan allowing unlimited charging for $50 per month! 5000+ miles for $50 would be a sweet deal!

    Supercharger - St. Augustine, FL (Buc-ee's)

    Fair points, but in fact I was having a bit of fun with that post...in the case of St Johns County the valuations on the permits are, in my experience, pretty much meaningless. My HVAC company annually pulls 10-20 new construction mechanical permits in St Johns County. We always list the total...

    Supercharger - St. Augustine, FL (Buc-ee's)

    16 stalls for $28k (per the permit valuation...) what a bargain - less than $2k per stall! I'd pay that for a single stall SC in my driveway!

    Supercharger - Hamburg, PA

    Still no Xformer as of midday 12/20. We stopped at the Hamburg WaWa enroute from FL to MA with family aboard our Ford van - I got flak for icing one of the SC stalls until I pointed out that the site is not operational.

    Supercharger - Summerton, SC

    I wonder why build so close to Santee?
