    I was just advised by a friend that a Tesla Motors store is under way in Shanghai, Pudong:

    Not strictly Hong Kong relevant, though it's close enough I think.

    Looks like it should be ready to open soon but whats the deal with the power lines going into the middle of the building instead of some point higher on the roof.

    My motherland! This makes me happy. I'll be sure to visit next time I'm in Shanghai.

    That's how they do it in China, at least in Shanghai. Maybe not any more, but I have seen plenty of it thinking ... what a huge difference from other countries electric cabling codes, compared to hanging mains wires ... in a tree?

    Anything is used for electric wires: Trees, building facades, signs, lamp posts ... anything the wires can attach to. And often it's like a birds nest of tangled wires.

    Having the cable come in like that should be quite normal in Shanghai :scared:

    As long as car carriers can operate safely the area, the appearance of the wires isn't a concern, I am sure they know what they are doing.
