    Supercharger - Hanover, MA

    So.... Hanover got it's transformer yesterday. And today, National Grid is onsite hooking it up. This one could be live within a week or two potentially. It will be a welcome addition for cape-bound traffic over the July 4th holiday and beyond if it is.

    Supercharger - Portsmouth, RI

    I found the site plans for the Portsmouth RI Neon Marketplace supercharger project at 3302 East Main Rd. I think it came up again at the June 16th, 2022 zoning board of review so this may still be going through the approvals process...

    Supercharger - Sturbridge, MA

    A new 12 stall v3 supercharger is being installed in Sturbridge, MA at Sturbridge Plaza, 196 Main St. There is a Shaws Supermarket and an Ocean State Job Lot in the shopping plaza. The plan was approved June 15, 2022 by the Sturbridge Planning Board. Link to the site plan Building permit...

    Supercharger - Meredith, NH

    The contractor does the wiring…. When Tesla comes to commission the site they’ll open everything back up to test, but at that point it’s verification not assembly. I would agree the site could be done anytime from one week to a month depending on availability of the utility company to come...

    Supercharger - Gloucester, MA

    We wish... this crew commutes in daily from home, so likely has fewer hours on the job vs. other sites where crews hotel for the week. Can't be sure (they put in fewer working hours onsite) in fairness to the crew doing this job - but seems likely. Today the crew finished up the first leg...

    Supercharger - Meredith, NH

    Wait - you said Tesla Technicians... are you sure they were Tesla employees and not the contractor building the site? Not saying you were wrong, just want to confirm. Tesla Energy was at the Burlington MA supercharger doing pre-commissioning work on Monday, so this could be them doing the...

    Supercharger - Gloucester, MA

    A late night/early morning visit to Gloucester revealed the following... no additional equipment onsite yet, but the supercharger and transformer pads are taking form, and the trench feeding power to the site is progressing in the right direction.

    Sorry... I'm sure another opportunity will present itself given how many Tesla is building these days.

    Had a nice all-MSM (gray) meetup this evening at the just opened Richmond, RI supercharger. Present were @JaeTheDev, @JER_1, @tes-s, @dhkaufman and @Tdreamer. Thanks all for making the drive from near and far! And @tes-s or @corywright please mark this one as done thank you very much!

    I wonder if Tesla Energy commissioning swung by Tyngsborough before (or after Burlington) yesterday to check things out? 🤨

    Supercharger - Newton, MA (RT-128 SB service plaza)

    Checking daily 🤓 I believe the reason Gloucester proceeded ahead of Newton (same company doing both) is that there is a holdup with the lease for the supercharger location in Newton. It's state property - how hard could it be to get a permit from the state I wonder :rolleyes: :(. There is a...

    And per a conversation with a Tesla Energy employee working on preparing the Burlington supercharger for commissioning in a few weeks, equipment for Gloucester is expected to be delivered late this week.

    Supercharger - Richmond RI

    Richmond commissioning was attempted today. Apparently they found an issue (factory wiring issue in the prefabricated units) and corrected it. Before the site can be brought online the remediation needs to be reviewed and approved further up the chain of command. They should be able to return...

    Supercharger - Burlington, MA

    Monday 6/60 update. Tesla Energy on-site doing pre commissioning. Goal is to have it online by 7/4. Hoping to have Eversource run the cables from the manhole to transformer and from ther to superchargers by 7/1.

    Congrats on #300. I'm not sure when testing detects our craziness, but I'm certain 300 clearly shows positive and well beyond the possibility of treatment. 😁

    Supercharger - Richmond RI

    FYI visited the site Friday 6/17 as a meetup location for a friend driving through the area. No changes - pedestals still bagged. The meter is live (and was on the 12th as well), so this should be online any day now once Tesla comes through to commission.

    Supercharger - Gloucester, MA

    Sunday update - forms for the supercharger pads underway and work continues on the trench to the transformer with some conduit already in place. No sign of any Tesla gear other than the one cabinet that was delivered earlier.
  24. Tdreamer

    Supercharger - Tyngsborough, MA

    The contractor that did the supercharger work also does their own resurfacing work. But yes, the supercharger build itself is 100% done, and waiting on Eversource at this point. Transformer lead times are long these days - lots of supercharger construction on the east coast reached this...

    Supercharger - Tyngsborough, MA

    Lot still needs striping, and probably sealcoating over the area before that. And as of late last week the transformer pad was still empty (and nothing coming down the utility pole at the street either which will happen after the transformer). This could possibly still happen this month if...

    Hanover is looking pretty close to done. Waiting for some pavement work and striping, and the transformer (& meter)

    Supercharger - West Lebanon NH

    I was considering this - while they might not need a zoning or planning board approval, I would think a building permit would still be required for code inspections.

    I've been checking this site pretty much daily when I've been around. Almost no change. I did notice that on June 10th (day after my previous "no changes" update there had been a subtle change where Eversource had returned to do some prep work to pull cable from the transformer into the...

    Sunday update. More site work complete. One smallish pallet of Tesla gear on-site with more to come. End of July is the likely earliest for this site to be open I think.

    Supercharger - North Providence, RI

    North Providence issued building permit #10247 6/1/2022 to demo two buildings and build a c-store at this location (1874 Mineral Springs Ave). At some point a supercharger permit will be pulled undoubtedly to go along with it - could be any time from now to just before the supercharger...

    Not a huge amount of change from last update - in part due to today’s weather perhaps.
