Things seem to be on track this week. High temp today will be 106F , so I was surprised to see people today putting on the stands.

We can now see the configuration, these will not be the type that we have to squeeze between, but will be behind the cars.

An Xcel Energy truck was onsite , but no transformer yet. That may be the rate limiting step again.

I might also add that this project removed almost none of the parking surface. They installed the Tesla pylons behind an existing curb and dug trenches behind the curb. The only concrete removed was around the 4 cabinets.

So the repaving part of the project should be minimal. It will be interesting to see if they replace with the original style concrete or simply apply asphalt.

The wires for the transformer pad are in place, but nothing else.
 
FYI. Went by the Home2Suites, Holiday Inn Express and Sams Club.
