These photos were taken at Canmore, Alberta, 60 miles west of Calgary on highway 1. It will now help electric cars on the way back from Golden, Radium and Invermere which are resort towns another 100 to 120 miles west of Canmore. These chargers were off to the side of a Petrocanada with a McDonald's. Have a Big Mac and charge your car. Enjoy.

Any EV charger that doesn't get you 75 litres of gasoline equivalent energy charging in 5 minutes, isn't a fast charger. It's at least 10x slower than a gasoline fill.

I am completely out of the loop on how these charge stations work. Do you insert your credit card then get charged on the wattage that is put into your battery bank?

I believe at least the Tesla ones recognize the car when you plug it in and charge your account. Dunno what the other makes do for that.

Fast is relative to EV tech which these accomplish in under 30 mins. There is no EV tech that gives you 5 mins currently so no idea what you are talking about.


Apparently free for limited time till they figure out pricing model and establish the network of chargers.

Clearly Petro Canada has the coin and foresight to explore what’s coming eventually. Instead of playing Johnny come lately like many current auto makers sucking profits and not innovating as Tesla and Chinese auto makers do it.

I think hes talking about the fact that gasoline or diesel takes like <5 mins and you're on your way.

So you basically have to wait a half hour, (assuming there are no cars ahead of you), while sitting at a damp picnic table on the side of the road. On what looks like a cold, damp, blustery day, (or night), until your car gets enough energy to get both it and you home. Sorry, but if that's considered "innovation", they can keep it.

No thanks to either one. I'll just fill up with good old fossil fuel in 4 or 5 minutes, and pass on anything that a place like McDonalds tries to shovel off on the desperate patrons waiting for their car to charge.

It's a good idea to lease space near off ramp areas. You can take a brake while recharging your batteries.

Reminds me of the infrastructure that existed prior to the interstate era on Route 66, etc.

Obviously, things will change but it covers current needs.

"Fast charger" is advertising spin, and if EVs want to compete on equal footing with ICE vehicles, bring it on.
I have no problem with competition, but let's call it what it is - it is a very slow energy fill vs ICE.

Found this Tesla Model S charging at a coffee shop in Invermere, BC. This one would not need to charge in a Calgary-Invermere-Calgary trip, but you wouldn’t try if if you needed the heater and there was the risk for delays due to avalanche clearing on the highway. By the way this charger is powered by hydro derived electricity. Enjoy.
