Absolutely, the best place for a Supercharger is 100 miles away on all major routes.There's one in Surrey. Just curious, but why do you ask about Coquitlam? Superchargers are for charging on long trips while you wait, less so for daily charging. Daily charging should be done at a Level 2 either in your driveway if you have one, or elsewhere near home or work.
What Coquitlam needs is more Level 2 chargers. If someone is visiting from out of town, they should look for destination (or other Level 2) charging. If they absolutely need something faster, the nearest Supercharger is probably < 20 minutes away. E.g. From Coquitlam you can head to Surrey, or eventually Burnaby. Even downtown Vancouver isn't that far for someone that's visiting.
Likewise, if heading to Vancouver Island, it's easy enough to get there with the current Superchargers, and many resorts in places like Tofino have destination/Level 2 charging which should be plenty to allow you to drive around and then get you back. I figured I wouldn't need any Supercharging if I started in Coquitlam with a full charge and spent a week in Tofino with an overnight charge at a resort a day or two before I left. (Granted that's with a Model 3 AWD.)
Yeah, I'd love a CCS adapter, since it could charge faster than CHAdeMO. Either one would be nice to have though (but I'm not sure I'd spend $600+ for the CHAdeMO), especially while the BC Hydro fast chargers are still free to use.It’s a good point and a realistic approach. We still prefer an adapter though.

So our current set up, we can't charge at BC Hydro? I heard from Nissan dealership that the superstore chargers are 440V? So, supposed to be fast? What adapter do we need to use Superstore chargers?
As this thread is in the Canada Supercharger Locations forum, “SC” should be used only to refer to a Supercharger.I think there is some confusion in this thread.
