Photo flip. This is great news!
Stopped by Cordes Junction yesterday (10/4), and the transformer is on the pad. Still looks like they need to put a pole up to route the power over to the transformer.
They are going to feed the power to the transformer from the tube that was installed under the road. If you look across the street you will see a tube sticking up under the power line. There is a also a buried electric line there. I got this information from the crew at Casa Grande when I was the first to charge there. The crew was there when they bored under the road to install the tube for the electrical line to feed the transformer. Hopefully this will be done very soon.
I stopped by Cordes Junction yesterday (10/10/14) and the transformer was all hooked up and I could hear it humming. New bollards have been installed to protect the transformer. Everything looks completely done except the numbers on the supercharger pedestals (1A, 1B, 2A, 2B etc). I could see across the street where they had brought power down the pole with the fresh dirt backfilled at the base. We are probably just waiting for Tesla to come out, test it and turn it on and possibly a final operating permit. I did plug in and there was no power. I just got my new plate NOT GAS but they messed up and forgot the space between the words. I'm going to have them fix that.
See photos below.
Thanks for the update and the pictures. Hopefully coming on line soon!
Fantastic & thanks for the pics!
We need Cordes running for a loop trip we are planning on the 25th for the AZ Tesla group (see the Groups section, AZ group). Everyone is welcome. We are working on details now.
It's live on Tesla Web Page!
I am driving from Tucson to Winslow tomorrow. Would love to be able to plan for a charge in Cordes Junction. Can anyone confirm that the superchargers there are operational now?
If Tesla's advertising it (which they are), then i'd say its pretty darn safe to say it is operational.
I called Tesla on Wednesday at 3 pm and they told me it is up and running. They told me that 4 cars had previously charged there and that there was 1 car now charging. However they said pedestals 3A and 3B were not working, so you may want to try one of the others. At any time, you can call Tesla Supercharger Support and they will tell you the status of any supercharger, how many cars are charging now, how many stalls are free and if any of them are down. The number is 877-798-3752, then press the number for supercharger support. In fact he encouraged me to call ahead anytime I traveling to a supercharge to get a rundown on it.
It would be cool if they showed all that information on a web page or in the car (when you click one of the superchargers on the map)
Thanks for the info. We will plan a stop there.
I drove up to Sedona today and stopped by here on the way. Good news....it's live!
Thanks for the pic!
Charging this afternoon at Cordes: third time the charm on post 1B. Started out at approx. 142amp
Do you have to set the range or will it just charge to limit?
I pulled into this supercharged today with 33 rated miles. The highest charge rate was 196 miles per hour with 371 volts and 158 amps. This is about half of what I have experienced on other superchargers. Looks like thranx also had a low charge rate. When it first started to charge it was just me on 1A and one other tesla on 3A. When he left a few minutes after I arrived, my charge rate did not increase. I reported it to Tesla, hopefully they will fix this. If I remember correctly, I normally get in the mid to high 300's mph at other supercharges.
Has anyone ever got a full charge rate at this supercharger?
