    They are only as accurate as the crowd can determine either by on-site visits or by finding permit information in City/County documentation. Sometimes we don't find them until they show up on someone's in-car nav. I'd say the norm is to find them at some point in their construction phase. Supercharge.info cannot be taken as authoritative as only Tesla has the complete set of information but it is the best out there besides Tesla. Here are a couple living visualizations to see the bigger trends in supercharger construction:

    Drove by there yesterday May 26 for cars n coffee ( not in Tesla) and there appeared that the charging cords were not taped down. Light poles and all signage in place. Is this site up and running?

    So, I tried pulling in two weeks ago and plugged in my car just to see what happened. First, it didn't blow up - so, that was good. Second, I noticed it was not supercharging. Third, the most important part, I was able to hit the button to disconnect it from my charging port, so there is some power running to the chargers. I expect they are waiting for town permits as I read it will also be a solar powered supercharging location. The panels are sitting above Staples.

    Is there some kind of notification when a supercharger goes live? Or do we need to drive by this thing every week and test it to figure out when it's live?

    It will show up as an option in the in-car navigation when it's open. But that technically doesn't happen for at least a few days after the stations are actually powered on, commissioned, and operational. The the web/online map gets updated usually a week or two after that. So, if you want the earliest possible use, when the stations are live but the navigation and Tesla's web map haven't been updated yet, then people have to go by to check. But at least it's easy to tell whether the power is on without having to actually plug in--the "TESLA" at the top will be lit up when they have power.

    Is there any similar indication for urban chargers?

    Not that I'm aware of, unfortunately. You've pretty much got to plug in and test. Or just wait for them to show up as open in the nav.

    I passed by yesterday evening, the Tesla word at the top of the chargers is illuminated (see pictures). My M3 is being repaired so I couldn't test them. If anyone drives by, check them out. I also saw a meter installed.

    Charged there today - they are working, but power was fluctuating a bit.

    That's great, for some reason they don't show up on Tesla's website. Do they show up on the car's NAV?

    Not in the Nav yet. Takes Tesla a little longer to figure out they are turned on than the TMC community. Maybe they should watch the forums. :)

    That this finally opened after 6+ months gives me hope that West Nyack will soon open (first reported early December, now just awaiting meter and stall labeling).

    IT'S LIVE!

    The guy was there hooking it up when I stopped by. He said the delay was CONED running the power from behind BJs to the chargers.

    It's not in the map yet but it should be by tomorrow.

    Thank you for the updates! I still can't believe this all started with my Father randomly stopping by during Cars and Coffee.

    Bummer. Based on the post history, looks like they were lit up on Wednesday evening, I charged there Thursday morning around 11:15am, then the contractor was there Thursday afternoon. You got there early Friday morning, and they are off.

    I hope this is just a temporary setback - unlike Altamonte Springs a year ago, which went off for over two months after initially being turned on. I still have to get back there.

    Shows as "Temporarily Closed" in supercharge.info now.
