    I was in Richmond BC on 2/17/13 and there were no charging locations in the city except for car dealerships. I was planning my next trip and Richmond now has 5 new level-2 charging locations - at the airport, city hall and several community centers. AND all of them are free.

    It really feels like charging stations are growing exponentially.

    I used to think Recargo was the best, but they sure as heck do not show those locations.

    I like plugshare more; it seems more updated. Recargo does not seem responsive.

    I always used PlugShare because Recargo needed iOS6. And I didn't update my iPhone to iOS6 until a jailbreak was available.

    That's my reason for using PlugShare more. I probably represent 0.0001% of the EV population because of it. :smile:

    Fantastic-just saw this! @FrancisLau thank you for sharing this - you ROCK! Headed up to BC in early August so this will come in handy (in addition to Burlington).

    I am heading up to Richmond BC on Saturday 7/6 so I will report on the new chargers up there. Hopefully, the Burlington supercharges are ready too.
