This feels like an end in sight.
Stopped by today. Interesting question: there are 8 "stalls", does that mean 16 can charge at a time?
No, it will support 8 cars. each unit handles a single car, but they are typically paired (and numbered 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, etc) so that if there is a car on 1A, and you choose 1B you will reduce the charge to both cars some (so always avoid sharing a pair, don't park right next to someone, or in this case probably diagonally behind them). Or you could just count parking spots. Charge port is on the drivers side of the car and you back into the spot, so in your bottom picture we are talking probably 1A / 2A / 3A / and 4A are the 4 spots in the foreground, 1B / 2B / and 3B are on the other side of the chargers, and 4B (or possibly there is a 4 & 5 instead of 4A and 4B) is that standalone unit in your second picture.
Still not sure how that standalone will work, makes sense that it is to accommodate towing, but you would need to pull into the spot face first leaving the trailer in the lane of traffic, or park alongside it Blocking what I am referring to as the 1A slot. maybe they will be re-lining that spot to make it larger. By comparison this is Auburn
So by my count, there is still:
* An electrical unit to go on the Pad that is surrounded by posts
* Signs to go up
* Probably painting lines
And I have no idea what the concrete cylinder in the middle is. Maybe an additional light post? There wasn't one there before construction, but maybe it was determined that it would be too dark to leave expensive cars without it?
I think there was a light before construction.
From this evening. Pavement has been patched and garbage removed; but still no cabling, signs, decals, or utility transformer.
Do they normally spray paint over the Tesla logo before they are open? It seems odd how they covered it up now.
Pretty sure the transformer is inside that brown box that wasn't there before this project started.
The high voltage transformer pad is still empty (it's surrounded by all the yellow barriers). the brown fense houses the AC/DC rectifiers.
Did not know that. I always thought the transformer was in the box in a "standard" SC build
See dchristienson's picture of Auburn above, the green utility transformer is outside with posts around it. the utility probably requires it that way so they can access it freely during an emergency where are Tesla want to fense in their equipment to protect it from vandalism/damage and improve appearance.
Sadly, it's National Grid territory, we might be waiting a little longer.
description on last page here:
I spoke to the electrical contractor and they said they are waiting on national grid and have no estimated timeframe...
Route 2 is our alternative from RI to southern VT for skiing and we are looking forward to this opening this fall. We would definitely use this as an alternative to the route via Mass Pike and a stop at the Springfield Supercharger. Anyone have any update for this site?
Just drove by.
National Grid, AWS(I'm guessing the contractor who built out the site), and the fence contractor are all on site today.
This may be going online any day now.
That sounds like a good sign - I'm guessing the fence company wouldn't be there unless the project was wrapping up and they were there to take down the fence.
Did they get (or are the getting) the Distribution Pad Mount Transformer installed? It's amazing how many sites are waiting on the local power company to install the transformer.
What does a Distribution Pad Mount Transformer look like?
if you go up to post 72, I think it is the thing labeled TRANSFORMER in the picture.
Big green box (around 4'x4'x4' to 6'x6'x6') with cooling fins on the side.
