    I received a response from the Tesla project manager.

    He reports: "When Naples is complete the stripes will be relocated."

    Our club is in the process of planning an event in Naples. We may do it at a restaurant near the new store. However, if the Supercharger becomes operational soon we may consider an event nearby the Supercharger.

    Could someone who lives nearby this Supercharger please post some current photos. In particular we are interested to see if a utility power transformer has been set nearby the installation. Review of public permits are telling us that Electric Rough in has been approved, but the installation is not ready for inspection of Permanent Electric Power.

    Thanks.

    stopped by here the other day as I needed a charge to head back up state, tesla nav showed it as available but when I found it it was not open with workers still there. Did not take photos as I had unhappy kids in the car and left to hit the ft myers charger. It apeared done though, workers stated still waiting on permits to open it up.

    The transformer is on site. The meter is not installed. Waiting for permits and minor work to be completed.

    Too much? Some are lined up like this but many others have the lines just to the right of the pedestal which seems to work better.

    Thanks for the
    photos. Glad to have this coming available.

    I spoke to one of the workers yesterday and he said the new Naples SC would be opened next week. I also went by the Tesla store in Naples at the the Waterside Shops. I asked about the chargers in front of the store. The salesperson said they were only available for their demo vehicles.

    I really like that photo. I plan to be there in about two weeks time, not that Destination chargers weren't convenient, but the Supercharger is far more flexible.

    Dropped by the Supercharger this afternoon. I didn't take photos Because site looks exactly the same as last week. I'll drop by next week.

    Can't read the signs but they look like the ones that allow non Tesla vehicles for 30 minutes?

    I believe that is correct. I believe it says 30 minutes General Parking.

    Signage is usually dictated by negotiations between Tesla and the host location.

    Larry as usual you are correct. The signs say 30 minute general parking. The Bayfront parking is at a premium during season.

    I'm posting from the Supercharger site. Talked to the men working. They don't know how long before it is finished. The meter is installed but FPL still have to hook up the power. Small things are currently being completed.

    No photo. The site looks exactly as it did.

    I stopped by there yesterday as well. The staff at the Naples sales center told me it was opened on Monday, they are wrong. I too spoke to an electrician working at the SC site. He said it's about 2 weeks away, they still don't have power and he was still doing some wiring.

    We were thinking about coming down for Cars on Fifth in a few week and hoping this supercharger was going to be ready guess we will need to use Ft Myers on the way back if we decide to go. Anyone else planning on going for the show?

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for the information.

    In checking the public records the installation was inspected on January 23rd and approved for Permanent Power. A note from the inspector reads, "EC (Electrical Contractor) to label breakers prior to FPL energizing"
