    It looks like the Greensboro, NC Supercharger site has finally worked out it's permitting issues and should be approved within days. It will be located at the Sheetz at 5421 HORNADAY RD, and the permit can be followed at:

    Plan Review Tracking

    Google Maps

    Looking forward to seeing another charger go in, I'll try to stop in and take pictures when possible, but I only make it by there once every couple weeks.

    last entry on the Greensboro review tracking page yesterday:
    plans are approved. no building permit required. work can commence. Electrical permit required.

    So I guess they are free to start digging...

    Looks like the superchargers have arrived from mother Tesla for installation.

    I went by there this morning and work is underway. This is going to be a tight site with the SCs fairly close to the gas pumps.

    Is this site likely to be up and running by 4 weeks from now, i.e. Nov 17? How long does construction/installation etc usually take?

    Four weeks is plenty of time for actual construction, assuming the availability of necessary manpower and equipment. The parking pads are already built and the site is already graded, so all that needs be done is installation of the underground electric runs, the above ground superchargers and electrical supply cabinet. The problem in GSO can be scheduling governmental inspections and receiving interim final sign-offs and certificates and getting Duke Energy to connect to a transformer.

    When I stopped on Friday, they had completed concrete work moving the curb at the side of the location. They have the conduit cut and sitting on the side.

    No digging started for the SC.

    Stopped by this AM on way to work. Lots of digging going on. About 5 workers and one backhoe.

    Stopped and asked one of the workers when estimated completion would be. He said they cannot say anything, see the Tesla website.

    Here are some from yesterday afternoon. Lots of activity, trucks and people. The workmen, while friendly are very closed mouth. Apparently it is a firing offense to disseminate unauthorized information.

    Based on my construction experience, if the City of Greensboro doesn't get in the way with inspections/final permits and Duke Energy gets energy to the transformers, the construction will be finished by Thanksgiving.

    This is going to be a very tight site.

    Finally made it down to check in on the progress myself. More digging going on today, and the switch cabinets are on site, but that was the only real equipment I saw there. -- Peter
