    Are we sure these are v3?

    I looked at them today and the cables didn’t seem any thinner than v2..... I didn’t know what else to look for

    As I understand it, the hallmark of V3 is 3 white cabinets - two of them the same. Typically they have been installing 6 of 8 pedestals although they leave the conduit and bases in place for the last 2. However, in an urban area with anticipated high traffic, maybe they will hook up all 8 as they did in Winnipeg.

    Do Tesla even bother building V2 sites any more?

    Yes, we're sure it's V3. The below picture was posted a few days ago by Bg2580 and shows the V3 supercharger cabinets, which are much easier to identify than trying to tell if the cables are thinner.

    Just to clarify, it is not “on”. They are definitely working on it, but the site is not functional yet.

    Yeah, I was very confused by that post. Very clearly plenty of construction still going on.

    Seriously people??? Just showing a little excitement. This is what “It’s on” really means——-> EC05049C-2631-4325-B481-C3FB27B8CFEC.jpeg

    Yes, I'm sure most are familiar with that idiomatic usage of "it's on". However, in the context of people discussing and waiting for a bit of electrical hardware to be activated, it's a poor choice of phrase to use to show your excitement. Too easily confused with the straightforward and literal meaning.

    Lots of progress today. They are working on the boxes and got the light posts up.

    Nice. Also those cables definitely look like the thinner V3 version.

    Obviously you have never worked with electricity...
    Common sense... Don’t use any slang with “on” in it when referring to anything electric. Just too confusing.

    But are the tops and backs on ?

    You sure there are no other construction steps...?

    If not , then I guess we just wait for Xcel and Tesla to power it on?

    Yeah they still need the backs as of that picture post. But major construction work seems done.

    Not necessarily. There are a zillion variables that influence when a SC gets built, at what speed, etc. One factor is the property leasing arrangement. Every one of those must be negotiated, and it may be that Target doesn't even own the property, they may just lease it from someone else, which means another party has to get involved. Then there's permitting and so on...

    So, the progress of one SC usually doesn't have much influence on the progress of another.
