    CCS Adapter - ?

    THANK YOU! I tried the SHOWOFF code and it seemed to work on the first screen, then at checkout it said it couldn't be used. The discount code jennycubs gave me a $16.70 discount on the CCS adapter and case.

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    Similar to other new superchargers Amarillo Lakeside isn’t on the in-car navigation map yet. But it iS on the Tesla phone app as available.

    Fabulous to see Amarillo #2 open! What is the fee to charge per kWh ? @corywright @MarcoRP @Chuq

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    Yes, without a transformer it looks unlikely to be done by Thursday. Xcel Energy still has a lot to do. There is very little work done on connection at the power pole also. The Tesla crew looks complete. All the parking lot is clean, new stripes painted, and all pedestals are complete.

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    Spoke to crew working today (Sunday), and found out the following schedule : Monday - scheduled to have transformer landed and installed by Xcel Energy. Wednesday June 22 - hope to be finished Thursday June 23 - penciled in for commissioning by Tesla.

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    I might also add that this project removed almost none of the parking surface. They installed the Tesla pylons behind an existing curb and dug trenches behind the curb. The only concrete removed was around the 4 cabinets. So the repaving part of the project should be minimal. It will be...

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    Things seem to be on track this week. High temp today will be 106F , so I was surprised to see people today putting on the stands. We can now see the configuration, these will not be the type that we have to squeeze between, but will be behind the cars. An Xcel Energy truck was onsite , but...

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    Spoke to the construction guys again. No transformer on site yet, but they believe they have a firm date from Xcel Energy to install one. Still expect to be done in 1 1/2 weeks from now, around June 17. Activation date depends on Tesla. They have “no idea” where they are going next.

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Yes, it’s not on my Nav here in Amarillo. Other nearby stations showed up 1 - 2 days after commissioning. There isn’t enough service business in Lubbock to justify keeping this restricted to service customers. I’d wager that it will be publicly available at least until we have a highway based...

    Things seem on schedule for the hoped June 20 completion. No transformer or transformer pad yet.

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Of note, this building is significantly larger than the size originally specified in the alcohol permit. It’s now almost 11,000 feet which suggests a travel center and specifically includes a quick service restaurant.

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    From what I’m hearing, there will be a supercharger there if Tesla follows through on their end. Construction of the Toot N Totem starts in Q4 . I’m sure we will see a separate TDLR approval for the superchargers when we get closer to construcation.

    Supercharger - Gallup, NM

    I was there last weekend and there were workers striping the stripes on the non-Tesla parking spots, painting fire zone curbs red, etc. Looks like it should be ready soon. The ground level signage was Best Western, but the sign at the top of the building still says Hampton Inn, and the cover was...

    Yes, he just smiled, and said that they were prevented from saying where they go next. I smiled back, and said I would be negligent to not try to find out, as everyone wants to know. We both laughed.

    That makes more sense. Thanks for clarifying. Since this is at the intersection of two interstates, I could envision multiple vehicles with low SoC and warm batteries actually happening.

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    Other comments I heard: 12 spaces v3 250 kw, BUT Xcel Energy is only able to supply 80% of the total demand so in the event that 12 cars arrive simultaneously drawing 250kW, only 200kW will be available per car. If 8 cars arrive all asking for 250kW, they will get 250 kw. Crew just arrived...

    Looks like construction is underway. Spoke to foreman, sounds like they are ambitious and hoping to complete by June 20. Would not comment on where they go next. Photos to follow. @corywright @MarcoRP @Chuq

    More info on the Buc-ees location. Looks like there are some legal issues with the land. Bucc-ees doesn’t own the property yet, and the next door neighbor is an truck oil change business who was recently purchased by Loves, who has an easement on some of the property. If interested , here it is...

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    The Buc-ee's at I-40 and Airport Blvd is not just a rumor, it is definitely happening. Honestly either location would be a great place for a supercharger. In my 3 year crystal ball, both places will offer competitive supercharging, and I may need to use my Tesla CCS adapter at the Buc-ee's.

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    Another quick check today shows no construction activity, no digging, no utility flags, and no materials on site. If a July finish date is expected, should see something starting soon.

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Ditto Ughh. This jives with the 7012 Zenith construction schedule being late 2022. By the time Lubbock gets any superchargers, Amarillo will have at least 16 spots. IMO if Toot N Totem doesn’t start construction until Q4 2022, they won’t have a place to build superchargers until late Q2 or Q3...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Spoke to a Lubbock contact today, and their impression is that construction of the Toot N Totem on Zenith won’t begin until late 2022. If Tesla is using this site for a supercharger, then we likely won’t have anything until well into 2023. I’m hoping 1801 Crickets is still a possibility. There...

    Supercharger - Amarillo, TX - East Interstate 40

    I stopped by the Toot N Totem at I40 and Lakeside this afternoon to see if any construction was happening. No digging, utility flags, or pallets of materials were on site. I’ll check back periodically to get an idea about when this will be online.

    Supercharger - Gallup, NM

    Has the hotel next to the Supercharger changed hands ? Last time I went there it was a Hampton Inn, and the Tesla web site says Hampton. However Google says Best Western Gallup West. I checked at Best Western, and they do have a location on their list for that address with "Opening Soon". I...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    No activity on City of Lubbock permits for 1801 Crickets or 7012 Zenith yet. The review application for 1801 Crickets may not be relevant, but will keep an eye on that. The Toot n Totem sister location at 82nd and Upland has a TDLR approval. It seems fairly small, not the size I would expect...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Still trying to develop information on the permitting for the Zenith location. The alcohol permit lists a building location size of 7918 sq ft with 64 parking spots. That is NOT a truck stop type location. It's too small. For comparison, the Amarillo SC #2 is rumored to be at the Toot n Totum...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Are you assuming that Lubbock customers are more likely to be truck people ? Perhaps, but the need for a SC here is for the existing owners in Austin, Dallas, ABQ, Midland/Odessa, and Amarillo. We need a place to charge while passing through. Also, just caught this on the Toot n Totum web...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    This is disappointing. I will keep scanning the usual places to learn more. Also, if we see construction about to start on the Toot n Totum location, that would be a clue. Looking at the numbering system that Toot n Totum has on their locations, and comparing it to actual construction...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    I don't think Upland is on Tesla's menu. Upland is also a smaller store than what Toot n Totum seems to be building at Zenith. The rumor is that will be a travel center, that has parking for 18 wheelers, restaurant, large bathrooms, maybe a playground, etc. Something similar to the Toot n...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Nothing on the building permit side. Found this filing on the rumored 7012 Zenith site, that fits with the construction of a Travel Center there. This does not sound imminent, since the area is just dirt right now.

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    BREAKING NEWS: City of Lubbock has a filing for a new permit at 1801 Crickets this week. Unfortunately, it is so new that they haven't filled in any details on exactly WHAT it is. It could be a new sewer pipe for all I can tell. The value is listed as $100,000.

    There is also a rumored new Amarillo supercharger at the new Toot n Totum travel center at I40 and Loop 335 , so this all may be making sense now.

    Another contact tells me Amarillo is getting a second supercharger, and this time it's a fabulous location. The "Toot N Totem" facility at I-40 and Lakeside. This is on the east side of town and would compliment the one on the west side of town. Neither one is super convenient to I-27, but...

    A friend with the power company tells me that the Lubbock delays were because Tesla was needing a specific demand amount for the superchargers. I am getting this 3rd or 4th hand, but they seem to think that construction will start soon, after completion of new superchargers in San Angelo. (I...

    ATT 3G Service Planned Shutdown

    FWIW, I was notified by Tesla that my Powerwall 2 installation has 3G, and to be sure that it stays connected to WiFi. That was a bit of a shock, since these were only 3 1/2 years old. I had a 2013 Model S, and I asked Tesla to upgrade to LTE when that became available. It was well worth it at...
