    It looks like there is one of the "old" pedestals and at least one new one that has the door protecting the cable from the elements. Any demonstrations of the door on the newer pedestals?

    edit: I take it back, after zooming in on the image it just looks like part of the solar structure.

    I think you were right the first time. I'd like to see a vid or better pics of that too.

    It does look a lot like the one in the video.

    What's the white box in the foreground with no visible openings?

    Thanks for the pictures. Were the level 2 chargers something nearby or did Tesla install them as well? They're J1772 chargers from the looks of them.

    Yes. The J1772 are next to the superchargers. Along with a Sony store that I couldn't help but visit :)

    It hardly looks secluded enough for parking.

    There's clearly a Reserved - Tesla Vehicle Charging sign in front of it.
