    Supercharger - Big Pine Key, FL

    Swung by there on our way back from Key West. No visible work that we could see, not even any utility marker flags. BTW , Marathon was busy both Southbound ( Tuesday, afternoon) and Northbound( Friday, morning)

    MarcoRP, So this is the zoning action , is there an online permit tracking for this town? I think that would be the next logical step in the process.

    In the picture you can see trenching to hook up the primary to the transformer and secondary wires from the cabinet. Also notice the area that was dirt in the parking spaces has been paved.

    Were the pedestals lighted? Also you can see if the meter has a display, ie; power is on.

    Just an update, when we were at the Magic Kingdom a month ago the Chargepoints that had been broken were all replaced with new units. Got there at 10am and were able to plug in.

    As of today 4/25/2022, looks like the stations are all wired, SC cabinets in place and meter mount in place. Still no pad for the transformer and no transformer. I think the parking area will require new pavement since the area immediately in front of the stations is backfilled dirt.

    So for travelers on I-75 this is going to be somewhat inconvenient. The WaWa is very close to I-75. Access off I-75 will be relatively simple. Unfortunately getting back on I-75 will not be. Options are: 1. Take a right turn onto Clark Road ( left is not available) and make a Uturn at Honore or...

    Pedestals in place, covers off of cabinets.

    In the upper left , outside the fence, one can see the pipes sticking out of the ground where the transformer will be placed. Just below that is the concrete pad where the SC. cabinets will be installed. The SC cabinets are in the white boxes on the lower right.

    I just drove by today. They are installing the pedestals. The base for the transformer is not in place yet. The base for the SC cabinets is in place but cabinets are not installed yet. I’ll try to add some more pictures this week. I don’t like to take pics when workers are present.

    Interesting, I was unaware that Tesla had Level 2 chargers with J1772 plugs, at least in the US. A first step towards Tesla charging for cars with CCS plugs?

    I wonder if the destination chargers will be free?

    Supercharger - Sarasota, FL - Clark Road

    So two pictures from today. One of the more unique installations I've seen. Looks like the transformer will be out side the current construction fence. At least there is some progress.

    Why do destination chargers make sense here?

    After several weeks of inactivity there are people actively working at the site today. I’ll try for more pictures when no one is present.

    Supercharger - Venice, FL

    It has to be the County or Tesla. The site is complete with transformer and meter.

    I wonder if the local planning authority required it.

    My son lives near here. This is in the parking lot of a Smithfields which already had a Tesla wall charger. No more drives to the other side of Wilmington to charge!

    When I read that permit it indicates 16 stations, not 20. 4 preassembled supercharger units with 4 chargeposts each

    Ok, how do I inform supercharge.info? I have tried logging in to an account with them but I never receive the confirmation email.

    Anyone know what the three green boxes on the rack are?

    Is there a transformer and meter?

    Supercharger - Venice, FL

    Nice picture! The concrete pad where that wooden box is sitting is where the transformer will be installed. The panel on the post next to it with the circle cut in is where the electric meter will be installed. My guess would be the site is waiting on FPL to install the tranformer (usually a...

    Walt Disney World

    I agree because Disney is all about the money. They view charging as an amenity that costs , not as a profit center.
  37. jrreno

    Walt Disney World

    I have to wonder if Disney is developing a new relationship with Nova Charge with a possibilty of providing some actual charging infrastructue. The possibility of waiting for government subsidy is a very valid point. Also for the mass market to develop more although the current situation speaks...

    Walt Disney World

    Ok, so I just found this thread. We have Model S Teslas since May of 2014 and we are annual passholders. It is very convenient for us to drive the 2 hours to Disney, plug in for the day and have enough charge to drive home without supercharging. I am happy to pay the $10-$18 to Charpoint for the...

    Supercharger - Arcadia, FL

    That would be the transformer and meter panel. The meter panel may or may not have a meter installled.

    Supercharger - Arcadia, FL

    Is there a transformer installed? Is there a meter and if so is it powered on( visible digits on display)?
  41. jrreno

    Supercharger - Venice, FL

    I think from the position of the bollards you will pull up on the other side of that barrier where the construction fence currenty is. Note the way the signs are facing.

    Supercharger - Sarasota, FL - Clark Road

    While there is no physical action at this site there are utility marker flags and spray paint markings around the site. Maybe construction is getting close.
  43. jrreno

    Supercharger - Sarasota, FL - Clark Road

    I have been checking and there has been no activity indicating construction start.

    I can’t see number of available stalls, probably because I’m not near but it is on the car Nav screen.

    Supercharger - Warsaw, NC

    They look almost complete because they are pre fab units (see earlier pics in this thread. That means the only work done so far is placing the pre fab units in position. They still need final wiring connection. Granted that is a lot less work than at a normal site but it still involves working...

    You clearly have not paid any attention to the local permitting process that takes place for EVERY installation. I’m also guessing you have no engineering or production expertise. These installs do not just appear out of thin air.
