Well this didn’t take long. Stopped by on the way home today. 4 of the 8 stalls are up. Talked briefly to what seemed to be the foreman of the installing crew. Very nice guy. They are from Kentucky. They were the same guys that installed the ND Superchargers. Said they will be completed by Friday before moving to the other Minneapolis location. Obviously the rest will depend on Tesla and View attachment 572036 View attachment 572037Xcel Energy to energize.

I wonder if they plan to eventually move on after that to do Grand Forks ND, and even maybe Pembina ND as the remaining pieces of their plans in this general region?

Super happy to have a Supercharger on the West side of town. But, Tesla really needs to install some steel/concrete barriers around those electrical boxes, since they are very close to the road. This is MN, of course, so it won’t be more than 6 months before a driver loses control on the snowy road and plows into some of the equipment. :( Look what happened at St. Louis Park just weeks after the Superchargers were installed...
 
What's the black thing standing at a slant to the right of the pedestals? Is that a cable that didn't get properly dealt with?

Yep. It’s a cable.
Just chatted with the crew of three. Two local, one from Kentucky. The install work will be all done today. Then it’s up to Tesla.

they are heading to the “downtown” Minneapolis site next where they’ve already broken ground. No other info leaks. They learn where they are going next only one week in advance.

Must be the same crew I saw today at the NE Minneapolis location.

Stopped at Minnetonka today; no change since Friday, as expected. All of the Supercharger handles are tied to their pedestals, looking like a present ready to be opened; not sure I have seen that before. Lights on the chargers are not on. Note that both the Supercharger and ChangePoint meters are installed and electrically active, so hopefully this site will be active soon.F54D349C-A534-4456-B66F-995672A23473.jpeg672571BF-570C-4890-9AD3-2DD34D157E39.jpeg6CB7152C-1FA6-4AA3-A645-D6DB29513F28.jpeg150961ED-C853-4E61-A1E3-00E81062101A.jpeg3F7F967C-997B-430F-94A4-101C42488BFE.jpeg01FFAE86-5751-49B0-B705-C7CD3866ED38.jpeg

Charged today at Minnetonka. Looks and works great (the sod is laid down to finish the site). Only got 103 kW to start since I was at 50% SOC and couldn’t precondition since the site is not on the Tesla nav yet. I did get charged by Tesla even though the site is not on the nav yet. :( (Still only $7 tho.)
Off topic, but this site (actually the Target store) is super sentimental for me. I met my wife at this Target store back in 1985 while we both worked here! Thanks Telsa, for marking this sentimental site with a SuperCharger!!!
