That is WAAY cool.........
Very cool. I've always loved time lapsed videos. Could've done with the banjo music though. :wink:
Yeah, the banjo music is brutal. Just turn the sound down - don't need it anyway.
Hilarious! The fact that we deem it thus--seems it means we are Tesla geeks.
Thanks for posting, that was interesting. +1 rep for you.
Yakkety sax would have been funnier.
Oh, we are big time Tesla geeks.
Very nice. A time-lapse of a place like Indio would be tough to watch, though.
Interesting video. The project doesn't really look all that complicated, and yet it takes a good amount of time to get this done.
I wonder how complicated the solar canopy installation is? BTW, I notice that none of the new superchargers have a canopy. I hope Tesla gets a chance to add them at some point because the marketing suggests that canopies are prevalent.
Very cool! Looks to be a different contractor from Black & Veatch who've been doing the lion's share of installs in the US.
I think they decided to put all the solar panels in one place. So they will generate the equivalent power for all Supercharger use--they just won't necessarily do it at the individual Supercharger locations. Probably not as ideal from a marketing/goodwill standpoint, but technically it makes more sense to keep all the solar charging it one location.
Sure is. It looks like the construction company produced the video.
Actually timelapses of Indio and El Centro would be very cool. You'd get to watch tectonic plates move in the San Andreas Fault. Might move a few feet given the plenitude of geologic time they're taking to get the SC installed there!
Great video. Geeked out, I did...
It seems so easy. So how come there are very few SuC going live in the US this summer?
Very good! Better update the GPS position as well.

Is Tesla actually building such a facility?
As is often the case with construction projects, it's the planning, land lease negotiations, permitting, exception granting, utility dependencies, county inspections, etc... that represent the lion's share of the timeline and the biggest pain in the neck.
Yeah, the actual build of this one took 11 days, but if supercharge.info is correct, the time from permit to supercharger live was over 2 months.
Still, wish we could get an actual 2-month timeline from permit to live for any supercharger in SoCal. :redface:
Awesome video for us supercharger geeks!
Black & Veatch does the design; they hire various contractors to do the installation.
