    I just noticed that that stalls don't have Pair Numbers, ie 1A, 2A. Is it a sticker added later?

    The stickers are added by tesla when the technician certifies the chargers

    I had once asked in the WW showroom and they said the chargers were not for customers, unless that's changed. It's really too bad in that it's a great location for one.

    Looks like the charger is working (MX charging) and stores are coming soon. Starbucks opens summer 2018.

    Carson [ @Mysterylectric (I think)], posted in the FB LI Owners group pics of workers installing more stations today.

    Rumor is 2 (total 8) or more!

    This makes sense since there are 4 charger vents which should be paired to two stations.

    **NOT MY PICS**

    I see a gasoline powered generator. Never a good sign when you are hoping the are going to turn the power on.

    34346B13-7FFA-450A-A3BC-211EB5531169.jpeg Glad I found this Supercharger on my way up tonight. Just for information, but the max I was able to get was 110kw.

    This Plainview Supercharger looks like it will be nice with some good amenities when they complete building it out.

    Charged here yesterday and it was busy. Stores still not open and some SC'ers did not work. This will be great for opening up the 4 superchargers at the Syosset service center 5 miles away.

    Which ones didn’t work? They recently installed 2 stalls (maybe they aren’t functioning).

    The supercharger in Plainview is in a public area. I has 6 bays. It is operational. It's at the west end of the public shopping area fronting the gated community. A Shop Rite supermarket and a hardware store are at the east end. Right now there is no danger of getting "Iced" because none of the stores are occupied at the west end.

    The superchargers in at the Syosset service area are usually occupied by cars that are being prepared for delivery.

    Starbucks is still closed but I see a lot of comfortable chairs, so it should open soon.

    The 2 inoperable stations are the new ones. Two cones are out to prevent use.

    Attention - Snowdrift! Back in the early days of Prius ownership, a group of Prius pioneers formed a users group that met once a month at the Walmart parking lot in Farmingdale. Do you think that a Model 3 group might be practical?

    I went to charge up today at Plainview. The cones were not blocking the 7th and 8th new chargers, so I backed into the last one. They were not active. I moved to the 4th one, by the transformers, and charged, for a while, at 120 KW. No complaints, except that the last two chargers should still be blocked off.

    I think the installation is going to have 12 stalls. So, it's not finished yet.
