    If you use the Advanced Search feature you can do a search Supercharger Slidell and get to the thread.
    Y8u can save a search as well. I have supercharger, Title only, sort by date descending as my saved search to check on Supercharger threads.

    It's open, BTW.
    Not a Model S owner, just obsessively following Tesla and the advance of EVs.

    Does anyone think these pre-cast concrete pieces will be installed vertically as at present, or will they be a base platform for the charging towers?

    I can't clearly see the smaller plugs that appear in the front face - those which are not the orange conduit. Has anyone a good explanation for all this?

    I think these precast units will be a time-saver for Supercharger installation.
    With enough sand/gravel at the bottom of each freshly dug hole, these become virtually frozen-ground heave-resistant.
    They already have the conduit cast in-place with the holes for the two stanchions.
    And mounts for lifting rings.
    Flexible type conduit at the ground level makes hook-up more adaptable/easier.
    Precast makes everything much easier/quicker to install.

    No need for concrete add-mixtures for very wet or very cold conditions, just a bit of cost for shipping and installing the pre-cast/fabricated units.
    Oh, and they could be re-used and re-positioned at a future date should a change in layout be required.

    Maybe they could start using these in U.S. Supercharger locations?

    I believe that the recently completed Supercharger in Fresno used precast concrete bases for the pedestals

    I drove by daily (it is only 4 miles from my house), and I never once saw a cement mixer or any sort of indication that the crew was mixing up concrete to pour.
