FYI:

Host Sites Needed for Electric Vehicle Fast Charge Stations

Advanced Energy (advancedenergy.org), a nationally-recognized nonprofit based in Raleigh, N.C., committed to working with stakeholders to help them understand, plan for and implement successful emerging transportation programs, is seeking qualified sites in the Charlotte and Research Triangle Park metropolitan areas of North Carolina to host quick charge electric-vehicle fueling equipment for public access.

Host sites are locations at existing commercial or retail enterprises that are interested in partnering with Advanced Energy for the installation and operation of electric vehicle charging equipment at their location. Chosen sites will receive, free of charge, a Direct Current (DC) Fast Charger valued over $25,000. The DC Fast Chargers are ideal for high traffic areas at shopping centers, gas stations and convenience locations along major transportation corridors and can charge a typical plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) in 30 minutes or less. Host sites will benefit from increased visibility and foot traffic as well as a heightened sustainability profile for their business.

“We are seeking project ready partners that can demonstrate the ability to hit the ground running” notes Advanced Energy project manager, Charles Young. The deadline for host-site applications has been extended to October 11th, 2013. Installation of charging stations for this project must be completed by March 1, 2014.

FYI, I just listened to the NCPEV taskforce webinar that discussed DCFC for the RTP/Charlotte regions. They are planning 10 DCFC stations in the RTP and Charlotte regions. CHadEMO and SAE combo charging capable. Here is a map of the proposed stations that Advanced Energy is working on.

Also Brightfield is rolling out DCFC stations too. They are planning 20 DCFC locations in RTP, Charlotte, Triad, and Asheville at urban municipal locations: public, workplace, and retail. Here is one of their slides on cost:

They are considering $2.24 per eGallon for their DCFC.

Thirdly, Nissan will be rolling out DCFC at local dealerships.

Finally, the Tesla Supercharger in Burlington will be unveiled next Tuesday, 10/22.

Neither of the attached images work for me. Can you provide a URL to the gm-volt thread?

I just used gm-volt to host the photos since I couldn't find a way to do it on this website. I'll try it again.

Note these are applications only. But considering there are only ten applications for ten spots so far, they are probably going to be fairly accurate.

It's a shame they aren't spread out a little further apart, say along the Interstates. Then they would be useful for trips. I can pretty much get anywhere in the Triangle I want. It would be nice to be able to do a road trip / beach trip though.

Yes, and no.

While it's a dream of mine to take my LEAF down to Charlotte (from Raleigh) to visit my sons at some point before they graduate from UNC-Charlotte, that's not really what the LEAF was meant for. It would take at least 3 stops (probably 4) at DC FC to make that journey, adding at least 1.5 hours to a 2.5 hour trip just doesn't make sense, other than as a gimmick trip. Having said that, having DC FC halfway (or even better at thirds) between the Triangle and Triad, and the Triad and Charlotte would make more sense for those corridors where travelers would only have to make one stop.

Those kind of charging stations start to make a little more sense when you've got vehicles with 200 mile ranges because at that point they start being strictly commuter vehicles and start to be useful for longer trips.

DC FC within a metropolitan area, however, can make sense. As an example, with my wife's new working hours, on evenings when we are going to a hockey game, she doesn't get home until 5:00 and we need to turn around and leave at 5:30. That doesn't leave us enough time to get enough charge in to make it to PNC Arena and back. True, if PNC Arena had public charging, or her workplace had it, this wouldn't be a concern. But we would certainly use DC FC in those instances (and on a fairly regular basis) if it didn't take us too far out of the way.

Additionally I think it would open up the market to a new class of drivers that have more than occasional times when they need >70 miles of range. While I still firmly believe that the majority of people are fine at the 40 mile level, there still are many whose driving patterns have regular needs above that level.
