    TDLR TABS - Project Details

    What: Tesla is proposing to install (12) electric vehicle charging stations in the HEB parking lot.
    Address: 25675 Nelson Way, Katy, TX 77494
    GPS (guess): 29.774658, -95.821859

    Don't focus too much on the late September start date listed in the filing. It's a rough estimate generally submitted prior to applying for building permits, so it's liable to be off by a few months. But I wouldn't be surprised to see construction start before the end of the year.

    Good location - just outside the Grand Parkway. The Houston-to-SA route is getting well covered.

    Stopped by the HEB and mentioned the above developments to the 1st employee I noticed in slacks. He confirmed there had been talks about the SC and shared HEB was put off that not all EVs could use the charging station.

    And that's about all he had to say about that...

    It's the ONLY EV company that's creating their own charging stations. And close to $200,000 a pop, these things are not cheap. Besides, when they start seeing all the cool Tesla vehicles, they will change their mind. Especially when the FWD's are opening up on the model X.

    The $200k is just the “construction cost” and can be just the electrical cost depending on the required permits, not the complete project CAPEX .

    Permits can be based on costar flat fee depending on the jurisdiction.

    Maybe they should have just put it at Rudy's barbecue in Katy instead and they wouldn't have to deal with HEB's unhappiness
