Greenfield is a Fuji. Finlay reports he went from 55% to 83% in about 20 minutes and the public setting led to many curiosity questions. If a 50kW QC starts up at 40-41 kW, then a 25 kW Fuji is likely to start around 20 kW and taper off accordingly?

Funny, if you look at the close up photo on PS, it has stickers saying, "shut off your engines" (aimed at hybrids?), and "turn off ignition before charging".

Slower or not, it's in a good spot. Wish more supermarkets would install QCs around here.

Saco, ME off again, no sign of install, but photo evidence of a QC coming soon in Portland, ME.

Fuji's marketing for their 25 kW DCQC is that they aren't that much slower than 50 kW ones due to tapering.

They give an example of Fuji starting at 25 kW and staying there for a long time, whereas a 50 kW unit starts higher, but quickly tapers to providing the same 25kW. iirc, their marketing brochure claims the difference in charge time for a LEAF is 7 minutes or less compared to a higher power station.


The Burlington unit is also Fuji. This is supposed to be the harbinger of several other DCQC being installed in Vermont this year.

Are L-2 stations going in with the QCs? I'd love to see L-2 charging in Vermont, but closer to the Hudson Valley. I live about 15 minutes from the NY/VT border.

A mix of QC and L2 would be great. Even though it seems like the installs are in slow motion, it's much better than this time last year, and this time next year looks promising.

I see there are now 2 near Montreal.

Unfortunately, there's only one public DCQC in Quebec. However, a jokester/spammer has been adding false ones to plugshare.

The Fuji comes up as 62A, 500V, or 31kWs on my iPhone app, so it should start and hold 25 kW for a while.

A few SemaCharge L2s got added around Boxborough MA this week, first I've seen of them, will require a separate account and card.

Edit: SemaConnect works on Pay With PlugShare, not sure if you still need a separate card.

Commonwealth Nissan in Lawrence MA has dissapeared from PlugShare, but still on ChargePoint. AFAIK they still exist.

Another 62A CHAdeMO showed up on ChargePoint, in Barre VT, copied the info over to a new PlugShare posting. Looks like I'll be able to go to Montreal pretty soon if this keeps up. Who's putting these up? This one seems to be at a granite company? Needs confirmation.
