Electric Charging Stations Unveiled

Regional | by Rick Stow  

Sun Country tour will unveil new electric charging stations in Midwestern Ontario.

Sun Country Highway Vice-President Christopher Misch knows his all-electric Tesla Roadster will hit 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, but he promises to keep it slow and easy during a three-day tour this week as he unveils at network of EV Charging Stations.

The Huron County native will visit Middlesex, Lambton, Huron, Bruce and Grey Counties where he will unveil a network of Level Two electric chargers developed in conjunction with seven municipalities and four businesses.

Misch's tour will see stops in Komoka, Ailsa Craig, Parkhill and Grand Bend on Tuesday.

He will pilot his Tesla to Goderich, Kincardine, Owen Sound and Hanover on Wednesday -- then visit Wingham, Clinton, Exeter and London on Thursday August 1st.

Misch says that Best Western is a corporate partner with Sun Country, and that's no exception in Owen Sound, where the EV station is located, adjacent to the harbour on 2nd Avenue East.

The Sun Country Highway VP says we can expect him in Goderich from 9 AM to 10 AM on Wednesday.

Misch says of the eleven stops -- Goderich, Wingham and Hanover's installations are not yet completed.

He says that is because the three communities have opted for multiple charging outlets.

Christopher Misch says Sun Country's stations are 90 to 100 amps and can replenish a charge completely in three hours-- but the idea is to top it up as you travel.

He says the chance that two vehicles charging at home on the same city block can blow a transformer is certainly within the framework of possibility, but speculates the fears are Motor City propaganda.

Misch's Tesla Roadster can travel up to 385 kilometres before it needs a boost.
