    Been waiting for months to tell you about that guys...

    NB Power has unveiled its new charging network yesterday at the Smart Shift Summit in NB. This is good news, and we should expect to see numerous charging stations popping up this summer in New Brunswick! :)

    Thanks for posting this Richard!

    Any idea of when DC Fast will be coming to the TransCanada in NB?

    Here is the official annoucement: Minister LeBlanc Announces Electric Vehicle Projects in New Brunswick - Canada.ca

    "Minister LeBlanc today also announced $335,000 in funding to build 10 new fast-charging stations across New Brunswick, led by NB Power Énergie NB. These projects will give electric vehicle drivers the infrastructure needed to travel New Brunswick roads with greater ease and will provide the tools Canadians need to make cleaner choices in the transportation sector."

    This will make our trip out to PEI (later this year) significantly easier!

    If New Brunswick pulls this off in the ambitious funding and time frame then this would put the Ontario EVCO effort to shame. Half the cost and in a 1/4 of the time. Let's see what happens.

    Don't forget that this is just the Federal part of the funding though, NB Power also contributes financially. :)

    Plus, it's only six locations...not really a fair comparison I think.

    Regarding Level 1 charging the NB Power website states:
    11-16 hours to charge a BEV? That's not true for a Tesla - using Level 1 charging will take 55 hours (assuming 7km of charge per hour) or more to charge a P85 when empty and it could be days more with really cold temperatures and an outdoor charger.

    Is there an expectation that the DC Fast will be CHAdeMO?

    I am glad to see that they are going to pair L2 chargers at the L3 sites.

    I certainly hope so. Any DC fast chargers I have seen in Quebec and Ontario have all been combination CCS and ChaDeMo.

    I did not want to become excessively euphoric about this most excellent news, although even Canadian FC I have seen was dual CCS/CHAdeMO. Finally I may be using my CHAdeMO adapter again!

    Does it matter if it is CCS for Tesla owners?

    Yes, because there are no CCS adapters for Tesla, and probably will be none for some years. CHAdeMO adapters are readily available and reliable.

    What I meant by that was do Tesla owners care whether it is CCS/CHAdeMO or just CHAdeMO - from your response it seems that CCS compatibility doesn't matter to Tesla owners. But I gather that CCS is used by many/most other EV manufacturers.

    Actually for the big three: the Nissan Leaf uses ChaDeMo, the Chevy Volt uses neither, and Tesla can use ChaDeMo; so the ChaDeMo is by far more common now than CCS.
