See #81. The Voice of Experience. My more limited experience concurs. Sometimes the reason is obvious; sometimes it remains a mystery. But eventually the miracle of activation occurs.Has anybody checked in at Kelso lately? Odd that the apparently completed facility would just sit, especially since it was constructed pretty quickly.
Gas stations are considered essential businesses, so EV charging stations could likely be in the same category. Obviously no single gas station or charging station is truly "essential," but as a whole they are considered essential.Did a little digging. Apparently, the City of Kelso doesn't issue electrical permits - they have to come from the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries. I found this on the L&I website:
Until further notice, L&I electrical inspectors (including virtual) will only inspect installations in accordance with the Governor’s directives regarding essential business and workers.
So, there's little chance that the Kelso Supercharger will get inspected and turned on until WA state loosens up its COVID-19 restrictions.
I will run by after work today.I see a lot of complaining but no one has actually stopped by in the last two weeks. It could be open and we don't even know it!
I am part of the problem as I drove right by on Mother's Day. Just totally spaced out or else I would have stopped in. Didn't think of it till I glanced down from the freeway and saw it. I can say that it didn't look open, but I couldn't be sure. It wasn't like it was roped off or anything.
