    Well I guess my Crystal ball was a day off. maybe they turn the main breaker on today. But that would now be Tesla. so we should be charging by tomorrow.

    This happened at National Harbor also. Tesla came back after power was turned on and had to do some work inside each stall. I noticed at Springfield, most of the screws are missing in the stalls.

    Yeah... once the power is turned on, Tesla have to commission the station, number the stalls and test to make sure everything works.

    Here it is, a zeroed out power meter, ready for action.

    We'll make an exception, just once ;)
    Of course you are welcome, but as Bill said we usually do this on a weekend so people can attend.

    I would love to! But it sounded like not many could attend. Shall we take a quick poll? If we can get at least 10 interested, let's do it?

    So I'm not trying to step on anyone's party, but there a gent over on the Tesla forum that just came up with THIS idea:
    tesla rally | Tesla

    We COULD combine a ribbon-cutting AND rally support all in the same event if done on 7/1.
    I'm not posting a poll and I will wait for @mrjwen to decide what that group may be doing for this coming weekend before going further.
