    Thanks for the update. I've looking forward for the SC in Islandia for a long time now.

    There are 5 cardboard boxes of charging bollards in the photo. They normally contain two each, which would be 10. If another photo shows 5 superchargers (if there are three white SC cabinets behind the two shown in their plywood crates), that would confirm 10 stalls.

    As of Saturday 4/7 much progress has been made! I talked to one of the workers who said next step is electricians. Hopefully it will go live soon!

    Progress! I can’t tell if it’s all hooked up but looks like the station could be hours away from going live! We shall see what the next few days bring.

    It's a lot more than hours. There are no numbers on the stalls yet. (Sign Tesla has been there)

    Have you looked for the transformer, and the meter?
    Is the meter powered?

    Until those things are done, Tesla won't be able to do their scheduling of a test and calibration of the site.

    I just drove by as well and I agree looks ready but unfortunately in typical tesla style it’s not done yet. Here’s to hoping it goes live soon.

    Again, no shot of a powered meter. Is the meter there and installed, and powered up? Until that is done Tesla cannot do anything, and that is under the control of the local power utility.

    Stopped by on Friday, 5/11. Fencing is gone and you can drive up and park directly next to the SCs. No juice yet though. Likely will be operational in the next week or two (optimistically).

    Went there yesterday. Still no transformers or utility meter. Probably another week maybe two before it gets powered up. This charger will help us huge on our trips to the island. It’s about 10 mins away from where we stay.

    Looks like the autotransformers are also missing (that last picture), if they even need them. I think 1 week is zero chance, and more that two is very likely.
