AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) – Maine’s electric vehicle fast-charging network is expanding.
Efficiency Maine has announced seven awards to place new high-speed electric vehicle (EV) chargers at locations around central and eastern Maine.
Two-high speed chargers, each with 50 kW in capacity and universally accessible (offering both CHAdeMO and CCS plugs), will be installed over the next year at these locations:
● Hannaford Supermarket, High St., Ellsworth (project owned by Revision Energy)
● Hannaford Supermarket, Lincolnville Ave., Belfast (project owned by Revision Energy)
● Irving Oil, Odlin Rd., Bangor
● Irving Oil, Moosehead Trail, Newport
● Irving Oil, Center St., Fairfield
● Irving Oil, Washington St., Auburn
● Petronino Corp. (On the Way), Lisbon St., Lewiston
With these additions, Maine’s high-speed EV Charger network will connect Bangor and mid-coast Maine to drivers traveling to and from southern New England and from the western border.
“There’s going to be a fast charger about every 30 miles along I95 and up Route 1, and that means that people can take off on their vacation or go on a business trip and not have to worry about whether there is going to be a place where they can recharge their car,” explained Michael Stoddard, executive director of the Efficiency Maine Trust.
