    The superchargers in Sidney located at the Best Western have been built. I'm unsure if they are operational yet but this comes from a co-worker who spotted them. I may go out there later this week to take a picture of them but with that information it looks like they should be opening quite soon!

    Here is an article from April 19th with a bunch of construction pictures. Note that the transformer has been installed.

    Gives me some hope for the completion of I-80. Has anyone checked Laramie, Rawlins, Rock Springs, or Evanston lately?

    I drove near it yesterday and it looks to have either 7 or 8 bays. I have Dashcam footage where you can barely see the superchargers but not sure if I should post it because I didn't drive in the lot. I took the exit and you can see the superchargers from the ramp. If someone is interested I can post it though otherwise it looks basically done. It must just be waiting for Tesla to test it and open it.

    As of this afternoon, transformer is in place (and humming!) and the meter is installed. The charging stalls are all dark, though, and none are labeled.

    In other words, this is just waiting for Tesla to show up...

    Looks like the lines need to be painted still? When Tesla sends a tech out, my understanding is that they sign off on everything that impacts the site usability, not just the electrical. But if the power is on, paint should be all that is needed before inspection -- even the landscaping looks done.

    I find so much wrong with this picture.
    1. " BREAKFAST AN DA WHOL ELOT MORE" I guess it could now be considered an E-Lot.
    2. Does it say Eat Dogs or Fat Dogs across the street?
    3. Finally, was there a requirement that they needed to plant a tree so they found the smallest one possible?

    At least we finally know who is actually in charge of supercharger design.

    This supercharger showed up on the navigation map in the car this morning, so it must be open.

    To be fair, it's also the biggest tree in the picture.
