    Tesla is doing a utility site survey for superchargers in the west parking lot of Barton Creek Square Mall in Austin. The usual caveat applies, this does not always result in superchargers being built.

    19 second to be exact. You need to be attentive and time disconnect very carefully though, as at the 21 second mark the wheels blow off and it all starts on fire.

    P.S. Are there any Supercharges in Walmart lots anywhere? As
    mentioned above, Electrify America has a deal with Walmart so this could be them.

    I cruised by the site yesterday, but didn’t learn much. The electrical contractor is Kenmore Electric. The site was fenced and screened. It was raining, so I didn’t get out to take a better look. I didn’t see many materials inside the fence and nothing that looked like what I have seen in pictures of other installations. There was no activity, most likely because of the rain.

    Just to clarify, as this thread lists many SpC... which one did you drive by?

    Sorry, my post was in response to the discussion of the possible installation at the Walmart in Stafford, TX, a suburb of Houston. I posted without hitting reply.

    Report on the Walmart in Stafford, TX. I went by today (Sept 24) and this does not look to be a supercharger installation. The site is fenced and screened so I couldn’t see too much or get meaningful pictures. However, what is did see were a few large boxes, all of them branded as GE, including 3 labeled as control panels. I didn’t see anything with a big red T on it. What little trenching I saw was not what I have seen at supercharger sites as it looked like there was room for no more than 3-4 chargers, not the usual 8. Unless someone has other information, you will need to look elsewhere for a potential supercharger site in the SW Houston/Sugar Land area.

    Electrify America doesn't have it on their website's Coming Soon list, either. All they have on there in Houston (in TX for that matter) is the one at Walmart on the South side of The Woodlands near the Grogan's Mill-Sawdust corner.

    I concur. Looks like four square-base stalls and more # of conduits than a SC would use.

    If it isn’t Electrify America, maybe it is Blink or ChargePoint, or maybe EVGo. What I called control panels in my original note I now see should have been switch boards. Sorry about that.

    Three new Dig Tess requests today of interest. All are labeled as being for TESLA. The Junction makes some sense since Pecos and Fort Stockton are underway. They other two are odd in that they aren't on the Tesla map, and they are at Walmarts, making me think they are for ElectrifyAmerica, BUT the contractor is the one Tesla uses, and all 3 requests were posted within a few minutes of each other.

    There's already a supercharger in Junction and has been for some time now. It's also closer to the highway and closer to Cooper's BBQ.

    Yes, I thought that was odd. There is no ambiguity on the requests, it says that the survey customer is Tesla, using RMC SURVEYING .

    Type of Work: SURVEY
    Work Being Done For: TESLA
    Explosives: N

    Perhaps RMC Surveying is actually working for Electrify America and either got confused, or is intentionally dropping the Tesla so we will pick up on the project?

    This might be the first time I've wished there were a "weird" rating for messages. :)

    And Madisonville is 30 miles up the road from a current Supercharger in Huntsville. Weird indeed.

    With the recent Supercharger activity at Rudy's BBQ in Houston, we should look at the Rudys in Katy (21799 Katy Fwy, Katy, TX 77450)

    Misidentified Electrify America:
    Junction was on EA's L3 hopes & dreams map but those other two haven't been. They I45 stations appeared to be Corsicana (mirroring SC placement) and The Woodlands. Their website right now only has a Sawdust Rd address listed as coming soon, that's their only TX one listed. Unfortunately the map they use is a Google drop-in thing that has the zoom disabled. Unless these aren't the "highway" chargers but rather the low-end "city" chargers that also seems to be part of their plan.

    It's been a week, have they opened the gear boxes to install at the Stafford Walmart to see what that actually is?

    Tesla:
    If these truly are "Tesla" installs it could very well be Walmart playing both BEV charging angles, putting in destination chargers. Going with multiple vendors is kinda a Walmart thing to do.

    I didn't get pictures, but the Mt. Pleasant location (Super One foods parking lot) mentioned previously has a large section of their parking lot fenced and tarped. I haven't had a chance to stop by and try to get pictures. I'm wondering if it's related.

    Yes, but why would Walmart use a consulting firm to install some simple Level 2 chargers ?
