They are pouring concrete today. It looks like 12 stalls.

Nice. Well done with the photos! Looks like Salmon Arm is a little bit ahead of Vernon. I wonder which other stations are in action right now. Has anybody noticed any Flo charging stations at this Vernon location? There seems to be 3 Flo DC fast charging stations at the Salmon Arm SC's.
Judging by the posts are different at 3 parking spots, I’ll assume there is 3 FLO DC 50KW charging stations coming.
 
Yes it looks like 3 x Flo chargers in Salmon Arm and I guess likely to be 3-4 in Vernon. It was wise for the government to make this mandatory in order for Tesla to put in their Superchargers. Poor non-Tesla owners have to rely on extremely unreliable BIG-OIL Petro-Canada and Shell stations for fast charging. Those are down all the time while BC Hydro and Municipal (Flo + ChargePoint) stations are up almost 99% of the time. So good to see a mix of EV charging in one spot ... so great!!

I find these things fascinating, so I am going to bombard you with more photos. :) The cabinets are all open, so you can see the transformers and other innards.

First, the Tesla Superchargers:

Next, the flo CCS chargers:

Here's a view along the row of Superchargers, with the CCS chargers beyond. There is a curve to it.

Lastly: cable being laid out, and a photo giving you an idea of how serious that cable is. (In case you're wondering, I am just reaching over the fence to take the photo).

Are those aluminum wire? There are cheaper since copper wire gets stolen a lot...
