    @jchag Thanks for the pictures.

    I took the liberty of a quick Photoshop stitch of some of the (overlapping) pictures, making a quick widescreen view. 1-4.jpg

    The plans (page1) show many of the utility cabinets and many of the superchargers will have sun protection (shade during the peak hours of the day). Many thanks to the photo/drone journalists!

    Hey Party People! California is chock full of Tesla peeps and this maybe the most significant SC ever built. Plus, they've got 3 different crews working on this 7 days a week. No one's be able to snap a few update photos in over 9 days? That's, like, totally gnarly, Dudes.

    “Huuuuuuuuuuuge solar arrays!”

    -said with Monty Python voice from the, um, appropriate scene.

    Looking forward to visiting this SC once it is done.

    Totally gnarly dude. Thanks for the picture update! Keep them coming.

    May want to consider cross posting in the beekeeping thread too, unless the hives are African Killer Bees.

    I remain mystified as to why this location is not marked with a grey pin on the Tesla website Find Us page...

    The opening weekend for this charger is going to be so busy. People will come just to use it. I wonder how the power management will do under with a full house?

    This will be a great marketing statement by Tesla for those that are not convinced about going on a Tesla road trip!

    I dare say that the opening of this "Worlds Largest" EV charging station will generate enough internet traffic to perhaps even put a dent in the traffic related to Chinese hacking efforts. The sky above the facility will be darkened due to the presence of so many drones. It will be like a full solar eclipse...

    And if every stall is full of charging cars, the SeekingAlpha headline will be: "Tesla charging network inadequate (video), analyst lowers rating to STRONG SELL".
