    Supercharge.info says 12 stalls.

    Matt White on twitter counts 16, but there are workers and I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up being 20.

    Interesting blue sono tubes. Could they be for light posts or possibly the allusive solar canopy?

    Yes. The center plastic is the conduit. The light posts come later.

    What do you actually mean? ;)

    A piano shot though would’ve been easier

    And another photo by a Twitter user who knew about the construction ALL ALONG! B96436A4-23FF-4C3A-8B9F-20BCA15F44C2.jpeg @Sunstar_Seeker on Twitter

    That would be the minimum identifiable from the first picture in this thread.

    IMHO there will be no solar canopies until Tesla has significant positive operating cash flow, save for a few flagship locations (Baker CA, etc).

    I here you but Tesla is getting a screaming bargain with our dollar so low right now and it looks like Ontario Model 3 order rate is something in the order of the 4th highest state so we are a significant market. With demand prices here it could be financially sensible to start the solar canopy installs. Also there is great visibility from the highway as advertising. Using renewables to feed superchargers is one of the only remaining promises Elon has not fully followed through on yet.

    We can only hope.

    I'm not sure the current level of Tesla ownership in the Toronto/Hamilton area, but based on the Supercharger rollout/density it looks like California numbers. There's like 11 Superchargers operating/under construction in a 100 mile radius.

    Between Limeridge, Mapleview and the one Grimsby (I believe) this area is covered decently.

    And St. Catherine's soon too. Yes, this area is well covered. Good for redundancy in case one is down temporarily.

    I was told 16, although there's room for more. As of yesterday, 16 charging units were in place. Supercharge.info has a wrong number, and its number of construction days is also off. They seem to have started counting from yesterday, when I wrote them about this.

    I'm not aware of any plan or action yet in the Niagara region.

    If demand charges are the issue, they should install Power Packs at Supercharger sites to smooth out their loads.

    In terms of lowering emissions from power required for Superchargers, I'd far rather Tesla install solar canopies in jurisdictions that have much higher carbon emission intensity than our power grid in Ontario. Putting solar on SC sites in Ontario would be strictly for vanity purposes.

    Ontario power stats – Canadian Energy Issues

    Compare this to almost any US state and I'd far rather they put solar on every SC site in the US before they touch Ontario.
