    Stopped by to have service look at an issue, noticed 6 more Super Charger stalls going up. Service Advisor says they are waiting on Com Ed to turn the power on.

    Are the existing chargers working? I'll be stopping there tomorrow afternoon to charge.

    this is... surprising. I wouldn't have thought that this site gets the traffic to necessitate 12(!) charging stalls. But maybe they aren't using them that way? Since HP is a fairly major hub for CPO cars maybe they want the extra stalls to keep those cars and cars in for service charged? Anyway not sure what the reasoning is for the expansion, I'll have to ask next time I'm in for something.

    I walk past there since it's just off a nice bike/walking path. There are pretty much always a couple dealer plated cars in the current four stalls.

    Nice. That's the only Supercharger I've been to where I had to wait for a stall.

    You were probably there when it was getting installed and had wires. No way for you to know

    We were there just yesterday and noticed the HPWCs going in. Asked the Tesla folks inside the showroom/service center about it. They said that while they frequently make use of the SCs for the cars they're servicing, it can sometimes get a bit crowded. So, they're adding the HPWCs, which are adequate for their needs, thus making the SCs more available to customers like us.

    Changed the thread title to state HPWCs added.

    At least a couple of these appear to be hooked up. Noticed a couple dealer cars charging on them last night as I was by
