We just passed through there on the way to Jasper, and had to fill up at the L2 at the restaurant a couple blocks away. After this one and Jasper go up, there just needs to be one more on the way down to Kamloops.

I agree, charging at the Edson L2 is slow and it is goi g to be so much nicer once the Superchargers come on line. I would like to see two super chargers between Jasper and Kamloops, one at Valemont and one further south.

Valemount and Clearwater seems like the best spots for Superchargers between Jasper and Kamloops. The other communities along that route have pretty limited services. (Jasper to Valemount 125 km; Valemount to Clearwater 200 km; and Clearwater to Kamloops 125 km)

Looks like they're preparing to pour some concrete.

There are already BC Hydro L3 Flo-chargers online at Valemont, and at Blue River, B.C. which is about half the 447 km total distance from Jasper to Kamloops, with 236 km remaining from Blue River to the Kamloops Supercharger.

These Flo-chargers are 50kw max (my experience is 44kw) for $0.21 CAD per minute, which works out to about $0.28/kw at the 44kw charge rate. Requires the CHAdeMO adapter of course, but usable right now.

Wow that was fast, I wonder how much business the hotel and restaurant will loose now that the super charger is open and people don’t have to spend a long time charging.

Checked last night, this location is not showing up on the in car NAV. Anyone know how long it takes for new super charger locations to show up on the car NAV?
