    Is the Huntsville supercharger under construction? It does not seem to appear on the Tesla.com map of superchargers.

    Is Huntsville open yet? It does not appear on the Tesla.com supercharger map? Just driving by there today wondering if it was open, thinking about how and where to charge when my Model X arrives.

    Best,
    Stephen

    It is complete but the mall owner hasn't turned on the power yet. I'm heading there tomorrow and will check again.

    Tesla told me that until it appears on my NAV map, that no, it is not operational. I was there last weekend and there was still no power. Other than the power (most important), it looks ready!

    Tesla told me it had to do something with the permits

    There IS another thread about this. I was there last week. I spoke to Tesla. They told me that it's a permit issue.

    Tesla said that it is not functional until it shows up on my NAV system under chargers.

    Tesla always says that. We have a number of Superchargers in both Canada and in the US where TMC members provided evidence they were working before Tesla showed them in the NAV.

    I'll be calling the local utility tomorrow to see if I can get any additional information. Also my parents know the mall owner so we may also check with him.

    I'm sure others have also tried but the more the better. If I learn anything new, I'll be sure to post it here.

    Ugh. Seems that's Tesla-talk for "we don't know". Permits are long, long done here. They need to get their people out there to initialize the station. The electric utility has already provided power based on comments about the revenue metering equipment being in.

    I spoke to the local utility in Huntsville today and received a bit more detail. The chargers are complete, they have been tested, and have been certified by the ESA. The delay is an apparent issue between the mall owner and Tesla. My parents have some experience dealing with this mall owner in the past and apparently he is difficult to deal with at times.

    My next follow up will be with the mall and I'll post here if I learn anything new.

    Interesting. You'd think that those details would be the first to get worked out, not the last!
