    Thanks, for the update. Keep us posted PLEASE. I do need to get up to Chico every once in a great while, and it would be so handy to have fast charging there to allow more flexibility in my travel options going onward rather than back to Sacramento.

    I firmly believe that perhaps HALF the value in any Tesla vehicle is in their charging network (compared to any other brand). I am a ONE CAR household and only Tesla really works to meet all one's driving needs.

    And this Chico install seems to want to challenge THE RECORD for the longest time between permitting and final opening, if not the absolute longest, it has to be in the "top 5?" Not the "top 5" that we mostly want to achieve.

    The location is in the Target parking lot, north of the store entrance. Getting close to being done.

    Really close to paving. Bollards are in and looks like chargepoint level two chargers are installed

    What's that pole behind the SCs? Could it be for a highly visible Tesla sign perhaps? Or just a light?

    It’s just a light post. You can see another one like it further away from the superchargers

    Not even close to a record, probably not in the top 50.

    With all the rain last week, and planned for all next week I'm loosing confidence in a Memorial Day opening. Not impossible but at this point I would be surprised. Our contractors here are fair weather at best :)
    Still needs striping and a transformer. But landscaping is all done

    Looks like they only need stripping and perhaps pg&e connection.

    Just as important: they now have a service center in south chico. It's a branch of the rocklin one. Open Monday through Thursday, with work sometimes spilling over into Friday.

    Appointments by phone only.

    Definitely connection work. There's no utility transformer yet. You can see the empty pad for it (the one with the 2 pallets sitting on it) at the very left of your picture.

    I would not make that assumption based on that Google listing.
