In reality the first pics I posted w/ construction started were from last week :rolleyes:
different time lines - Elon time makes sense when you see the future

Yesterday they were stopping for lunch but it looked like they were going to be striping in the afternoon. so basically done

The construction will be finished and the site will be ready for inspection and electrification. The electrification step is up to PG&E so that is another story.

How did this go from equipment disappeared, to almost fully installed in the space of a month? And without anyone noticing the return of all the boxed equipment?

My supercharger Ring cam was deployed elsewhere... :)

It is pretty amazing how quickly it went from "on hold" to "almost finished" but we don't have the same number of eyes on the north coast that we do elsewhere. A charger at Kettleman gets dented and there are 300 photos immediately, but they could build a mega charger up the coast and it might take a day or two for someone on here to notice...

I bet it took less than a week to build based on what I saw when they were first digging in the pad area.
I think that was probably day 2. equipment delivered and fence up day 1. day 3 trench everything, day 4 lay everything, 5 pour concrete pad and backfill HMA.
7 install everything? that's about how fast our installations have been going for new L2 stuff with poured pads.
I'll be passing by there next week. Taking my 3 for work and doing Laytonville SC down &over 20/ back up 1. curious about the section of 1 that I think might make a fun hill climb ~PM 100/101 area

Looks like there was a correction to be made after the 5/4 final inspection?

How does this work in a remote location like this -- does Tesla hire a local electrical crew or send some supercharger swat team in and put them in hotels? I'm wondering if the permit feedback (twice now) might be related to an inexperienced install team.

Why aren't these chargers working Yet?

Looks like you're new here...welcome!

It sounds like most of the construction work is done (except for possible remediation for problems found during inspection). After that, it's just waiting for a utility transformer from PG&E, then testing from Tesla. This might be a useful reference (see the section on "Construction"):
