Supercharger - Invermere, BC

A new Supercharger is coming soon to the Crossroads Esso Gas station in Invermere. In an email from the planning department, I was told old plans from Tesla to work with the city to install a Supercharger on municipal land: Invermere (search Tesla in top left) didn't go through and that now the station will be built at the Esso. I called the Esso and they confirmed a project is in the works.

Sounds like enough confirmation for a blue dot, yes?
 
Crossroads Esso is actually in radium Hot Springs even though it has an Invermere postal address - Radium makes a lot more sense for the SC because it is “at the crossroads“ the village of Invermere also has an Esso station out on the hiway - can you confirm which of these two stations confirmed the development- these stations may have common management

Hmm, good point. The junction of Hwy 95 and 93 would be a more logical choice. 🤔
 
Google maps shows the cross roads Esso in in the centre of the traffic circle in radium - I’ve been around that circle multi times there is nothing (but sculpture) in the centre of the traffic circle - but when you touch the pin it shows the address of the station in the village of Invermere? I am driving by there tomorrow so I will see what I can find out. The Windermere station has a huge parking lot and they just put in all new blacktop about a month ago

The complete closure is only a month long, so unless a prefab supercharger (à la Beaver, UT) rolls in on a truck tomorrow, it won't do much good. I am surprised they didn't manage to get Golden done though, as combined with Canmore V3 upgrade on the other end, it appears that was the intention.
 
A post on PlugShare by a Tesla driver indicates the manager of the station said a bunch of Superchargers were going to be installed by end of June 2021 at the Esso in Invermere. There is already a destination charger at this same Esso Station if in a pinch until then.

Went by yesterday and no action so far.
 
Stopped into the Esso station today and the cashier said construction for the super chargers will be started in a few weeks. This store is a great place for the chargers. There is an M&M Meats inside with loads of pastries, a decent sized grocery selection for a gas station. Bathrooms are clean and have multiple stalls.
As for the current destination chargers, I was getting 10kw/204V/48a speeds.
