Who is going to drive by and try plugging in every day since the PGE transformer is already installed? Should be any day now.
 
Canning electric is on site this morning doing final preparations, I assume.

I see this at many sites but always sort of confusing when I see stalls in a handicapped spot. Do you have to be handicapped to use that supercharger?

Yes, that is the intent.

It's not completely clear. The apparent intent of the guidelines for site installations is to have one stall be exclusively ADA reserved if there are 5-25 total. Some Tesla sites have signs that explicitly contradict that interpretation, however. In addition to the ADA signed spaces, there are requirements for additional unsigned, accessible spaces. Some sites, like this one, appear to be incorrectly marked/signed according to state guidelines, effectively reserving more spots than required. (Only the van accessible space should marked with any ISAs.)

Yeah, that makes it legally a 6 stall SC for the majority of the population. The stall on the right does not have the sign on the post in front of the spot so was likely incorrectly painted. Get the black paint out. Also of note, there are no parking stops yet.

Just stopped by, button opens charge door but no lit T of any color when plugged in. Someone else was plugged in and seemed confused by no charging. Oh well, maybe next week.

Oh, parking stops are in. Didn’t get a pic of those though.

Any news yet on Sonoma opening?
Did you read the post less than 3 hours before yours? And the ones above it?

Construction is completed, transformer is in, they seem to have some power as the button on the handle opens the charge door but that is it. No lit Tesla Logo on the car or on the charger housing.

It is now in God's hands (Elon or PG&E) as to when it will actually work and the switches will be flipped to activate them. You will either see the red pin on your nav or maybe even see it show up under nearby chargers in the app. Or someone will post here saying it is active. Asking if there is any news won't speed it up.

Sorry, didn't realize you were new here. If you are like most people and you browsed for awhile bfefore joining and posting I was hoping you woud have noticed that none of the threads about SC locations have opening dates and made the connection that Tesla does not issue opening dates. They may be ready but PG&E (or other electric provider is not) or the electric provider is done and Tesla has just decided they aren't ready to turn it on for some reason. You would have better luck with a magic 8 ball. Also see the million posts about Tesla delivery "estimates". If you are looking for things to happen on a schedule, Tesla is the wrong company to follow. Just stay tuned to this thread and look for "LIVE" to appear in the title. The moderators will change it from "under construction" to "LIVE" when it is confirmed to be live.
