I hope this goes online before Wings Over Houston
Ran by today. The only significant difference is that there are a set of cabinets surrounded by a fence in the area where the men are working in Darmie’s photos.
Sorry, the men working are in drsnooker’s photo. The area is more built up in Darmie’s photos, and is now enclosed.
It feels like this particular supercharger is taking longer than usual to install....
Latest photo. Stalls are conduited. Looks like they are waiting for the transformer.
And the charging pedestals, which are missing at a few SC construction sites across TX.
And the utility drop. Looks very well prepped for it, though, should be a quick hookup once the transformer install is inspected.
I would not call this one of the slower developing ones, at all.
Well it feels like it, darn it.
Ran by the site Monday 7/8 and it appears to be at a standstill (unchanged from Pale-rider's #85 post) until the charging pedestals arrive because I'm 95% that CenterPoint will not be cleared to bring power to the site without the pedestals. Now they could drop the transformer on the pad, but there will not be any feeders connected to the overheads. I do remember the GC telling me the pedestals wouldn't arrive until late July at the earliest, but at the time I just figured he was under promising in order to over deliver. I guess he was shooting straight.
I ate at Rudy’s today. No significant change.

That's not a new thing... I can tell you about several charging stations in Michigan that just appeared completely out of the blue without any advance warning that they were even coming. The Supercharger in Ludington is a prime example of that. It was never on the Tesla map as coming soon...until one day it was just there and available to use. There's also a third charger under construction around Grand Rapids that is not on the Tesla map either...yet it will be open in another month or so. Then there's Escanaba which has been "Target opening in 2017" then "Target opening in 2018" and now "Target opening in 2019".
So what I'm saying is... That map isn't exactly something to be relied upon completely.
Giddings & Webster are not on the Tesla map, but construction is underway. It’s all magic.
I just wonder what legislation holds up what. It's as if the official Tesla map don't want the state legislators to know what's going on until it's done. ..and what's the real reason for the lack of peristalsis? Humm. Michigan, Texas.... Na, but I do remember in the 60's listing to pop griping about conspiracies. Here I am doing the same thing.
I consider the Tesla "coming soon" map to be a transcription of a Xerox of a printout of a photo of a whiteboard of an informal presentation taken during an staff meeting in 2012. It's just a sketch of "what would be nice if we could do it," in my opinion, and doesn't carry much weight in the specifics.
yep - purely aspirational
Okay, so all that's left in for the tie-in to the grid, someone at the power co does an inspection, meter gets turned on, and then the Tesla tech shows up to throw the switch?
Or is there another local gov inspection to happen, too?
That sounds like a couple weeks, maybe?
Is my post showing up?
