    This is permit probably isn't tesla. Tesla would be put More than 3 stalls. Four is typically the min.

    For this very busy area I'd think they'd put in 12 stalls.

    Agreed, the permit for 3 charging stations won't be a Supercharger. But it could be more HPWCs. There is currently one HPWC at that mall.

    However if your source said 8 charging stations, and he knows they are specifically for Tesla, that sounds like it could be a Supercharger. But I would not rule out more HPWCs.

    It's a super charging station. I mentioned the HPWC under crate and barrel, he was aware of it. This specifically super charger.

    Yippee! Another SpC along the 405! Just what we needed. And Fountain Valley is coming next too. Maybe in a year every single exit along the 405 will have a SpC because we totally have a need for all these, Tesla.

    Ah... sarcasm.

    I'm sure Tesla will start placing SCs on the 5 and in the San Fernando and Pasadena areas soon. Patience.

    I am quite encouraged by these new SCs in urban areas. Tesla has recognized that there are many potential urban customers who don't have home parking spaces with charging power. They need SCs along major urban commuting routes.

    There is a lot of construction being done on I-5, They will probably wait until things finalize.

    I'll be seeing my friend Tuesday night. I'm going to validate that it is in fact Super Chargers. I'm sure it is though. He talked about them "having an area" in the parking lot etc.

    Update. My friend said the PM&E was the same plan as San Juan, just changed the name. That was accepted by Costa Mesa. Tesla just needs to negotiate space with South Coast Plaza.

    So Tesla did this without a deal in place with South Coast Plaza?

    All he knows is the PM&E's were submitted and approved. That's the only involvement Costa Mesa has. The rest is conjecture.
