Thanks so much for the pics really moving fast exciting!
Still quite a bit of rain today, but continuing progress.
2 of the Superchargers have been removed from their crates.
A Supercharger version II – 135Kw
Trench partially filled in with conduit run for each stall.
They probably won't pour the foundations for the stalls until it quits raining every day.
Thank you so much for keeping us updated! We live in Richmond, VA and travel to Cincinnati a couple times each year and we will finally be able to do it in a straight line. I'm very excited that its moving so quickly!
Big news today!
All 4 Superchargers have been placed on their pad.
Two workers working on the distribution cabinets.
1 form ready for a concrete foundation.
Terrific. Does it look like they can add capacity? Most new sites seem to be going to 6-10 chargers
There are additional parking spaces beyond the stalls (where the Superchargers were initially delivered). They could add 8 more stalls there and have 16 in a row.
4 Supercharger cabinets = 8 stalls.
Appreciate your photos, keeping us up to date.
Got a little closer view today without the loader in the way.
More forms & rebar getting ready for the foundations.
@Villa-Lobos This is where additional stalls could be built in the future.
Trench looks the same from Thursday.
Thanks for the update!
Thanks for keeping us updated.
Just a quick update today.
The foundations for all 8 stalls were poured today. The concrete was still wet. All will be back-in; No trailer friendly pull-in stall. The electrical box feeding the transformer and the meter base have also been setup. No meter is installed yet and the transformer pad is still empty.
Referencing back to the Little Rock AK thread .. this looks like the same config. Some people, including myself, though that the Little Rock install had an "implementation error", but this looks to be the same config. New design? Maybe? I don't know ..
Supercharger - Little Rock, AR
With these stalls in this orientation, the Tesla logo will be visible on Virginia Street as you approach, making the site much easier to find. Additionally, it will make getting in the trunk easier while plugged in if the signs are far enough back.
7 of the 8 stalls have been partially setup.
The sky was looking rather ominous.
What is the deal with the 90' rotated chargers?
The rotated chargers were first noticed on the Little Rock Superchargers. At first, speculation in that thread was that the contractor had erred and rotated all of the charger stations, instead of just the one station that was a side, pull-through station. After much hand wringing about Little Rock possibly needing to be redone, evidence rolled in that this is the new way that they're building them now. The latest speculation is that it's to clear the space directly behind the car so that Model X folks with bike racks or other hitch-mounted accessories won't be impeded by the charging pedestals.
Another thought is it's also to reduce the risk of people backing into the pedestals.
Installations currently under construction in Rochester, NY and Florida City are oriented in the historical direction.
Getting a lot closer...
The stalls have had their charging cables attached, and the missing 8th stall is now in place.
Still no electric meter or transformer yet.
Many thanks for the updates. Columbus Ohio to Charleston SC here I come! Finally!
