... and drive up into the middle of it? I didn't know that was where EV parking was.
Found that VIN#60 model 3 down in Cedar city during thanksgiving. we had to fight for the destination charger, luckily there was a level 2 J1772 next to the tesla charger.

Are you freaking kidding me, Utah? First you take away the state tax incentive, now I find out I'll probably have to wait years for HOV access, if ever!
I just got my application for my C permit approved last week. It was about 14 months from when I first submitted. (I'd honestly forgotten about it)
I got my first in like two months. Still waiting/hoping for the lottery on my second after ~11 months. A friend just got his last week after ~18 months.
Yeah it really pisses me off watching something like a Yukon hybrid drive past with a C decal. I understand that they need to limit access to keep access limited, but they need to raise toll fees (which is in process), and have a tiered structure for C decals (something like a tiered system with guaranteed access for pure EVs, and then plug in hybrids, and then priority given based on total emissions or something, so that the dirtier hybrids eventually get kicked out).
So they added a pair of DC fast chargers at the Park City Transit Center in Kimball Jct. Two units each featuring CCS and CHAdeMO. Both units are claimed to be 50kW but I've only been able to get at most 39kW using the Tesla CHAdeMO adaptor. (97-100amps at up to 400v). They start out at low voltage (but still at ~100amps) and slowly climb up to 400v until they hit the taper. So you start at like 33kW and climb to a max of about 40kW before tapering.
Regardless they are free to use for the time being, which is nice.
edit: Also they apparently run WindowsXP. The first time I showed up one of the units had crashed and had the standard XP desktop on the display, fully touch functional. I could have trashed the filesystem had I wanted too. I restarted the unit from the start menu and it rebooted into the proper charging app.
Thanks Fiver. Does anyone know if this is on plugshare yet?
Yea, they updated the existing post. There's a pair of 32amp J1772 chargers that they put in last spring. They just added the DC ones.
I'd love some feedback if anyone can get above 40kW, Tesla CHAdeMO charger or another car that is native to CCS or CHAdeMO. Perhaps for some reason my car/adaptor combo just can't take the full 50kW.
As a software guy... I just... wow.. how... XP is nearly 20 years old at this point. How is (presumably relatively) newly written software using it?! It wasn't XP Embedded, right?
It was XP embedded.
Ok, that makes slightly more sense.
Well, there's definitely a customer Model 3 in Utah: https://www.ksl.com/auto/listing/4426985?ad_cid=2
Are all the local owners able to configure now? I was able to get in a week or two ago, but am waiting for AWD (and to finish my home under construction).
Am I the only one that is sad and disappointed that so many people are trying to flip these cars?
I know my friend who has a 90d Model S has already configured his.
Nope. It just seems silly to me. By the time you account for sales tax and everything, you're probably not going to be making very much profit (unless you plan on taking the tax credit, which sounds pretty shady). And as a buyer, I wouldn't be willing to pay that premium to account for the other guy's sales tax AND my own sales tax AND not be eligible for the tax credit because it's no longer a new vehicle. At that price point, you're in Model S territory, easy.
As of last week there were three Model 3's in Utah. 2 were employee cars and one "normal" owner car. This is according to the sales staff in SLC. There might be more now as lots of people (myself included) got the invite to configure about 2 weeks back. I'm personally holding out for AWD (if I even get it, I do love my S).
Also as a heads up. Next Tuesday (Feb 6th) Snowbird is having the ribbon cutting for it's new Destination Charging setup. Would nice to see some local's show up for support. If I recall it's 3 Tesla HPWC (load sharing a single 100amp line) and two 40amp J1772's. (and a few normal 12v outlets for longer term stays)

I'm excited as more destination charger setups come in as high-amperage load balanced. Seems like in the best case scenarios people will charge must faster, and worst case it's the same as if they had multiple non-load balanced 30-40A chargers, which seem to be the norm for the few destination chargers I've looked at.
I might be able to make it at 10:30 when it starts. Speaking of Snowbird, anyone see their one star ad?
