    The Supercharger location in Columbia, SC is not enclosed either.

    Went by the Batfront Supercharger Sunday afternoon. It looked exactly like the last time I was there over a week ago.

    I'll try to get by later in the week and talk to the General Contractor.

    Does this appear to be just awaiting inspection and FLP hookup? Has anyone noticed an inspection sticker?

    The inspection was approved. It appears that they are waiting on FLP hookup.

    As I mentioned up thread, "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".

    So Permanent Power was already inspected and approved a month ago.

    ^^^^^
    It’s busy season but for FPL to take a month to turn on is awful particularly since it’s in season.

    The Supercharger is operational. This Model S was charging when stopping by to check at 4pm.

    There is no charge to park but this lot is crowded during season.

    Thanks @Roland, you've made me very happy.

    Now if we can just get something between Nashville and Birmingham so we can stop detouring in to Huntsville (though lots of thanks to Huntsville for having the charger and to Cotton Row and Commerce Kitchen for some great meals while we were charging). On second thought, may just keep detouring in for the good food.

    It sometimes takes a week or two. That's been a minor frustration with Chargerville since in order to maintain accuracy it gets its Tesla information from Tesla so Naples doesn't show up yet and nobody can yet write reviews.

    We charged there yesterday (only Tesla there) and saw up to 107 kW charging rate. The chargers are no visible from the street, but the valet parking attendant knew where they were. There was a strong smell of gasoline yesterday (which may have been transient) but meant that we couldn't stay in the car while charging.

    Here's a photo looking out towards the entrance from Airport-Pulling Rd. BTW, we've charged there 3 times and not noticed any gasoline or other smells.

    We charged there today after the FTE meetup. Odd that it has still not found its way onto the findus page.

    Hmmm, my photo appears to have not shown up and nothing I do seems to fix it. Anyone know what might be the problem?

    perhaps Tesla is waiting to send out an email that it is open before adding it to the Find Us page. I often find that I get an email notification about new SC in the region several days after it is reported as open on the forums and supercharge.info

    as a condo owner in the Naples area, this is a welcome addition to the SC map.

    Thanks for the update, I am glad that the smell of gasoline was just a temporary problem (likely a spill while refueling an ICE vehicle or lawnmower).

    EJ's Cafe is offering free coffee while charging. Just show your key fob or ask for Eric!
