Electric vehicle tidbits and adventures in the Kootenays
K Via Revy 9
Well, unfortunately we ran into a malfunctioning DCFC unit once again in Revelstoke. Our batting average isn’t that great so far – of 6 different distinct units we have visited, 2 of them did not work. I think we have had worse luck than most, but unfortunately when there is only one unit at a given site, that is all it takes to severely delay your day when you have planned around a short stop. Let me say it again – please install all future sites with two units! There is a reason Tesla is doing it this way with their Superchargers – they realize that the uptime of any given unit will not be 100% and the time to get a technician onsite for any of these locations is too long when there is only one unit that people are relying on.

He is very passionate about the future of energy generation & usage.He prefers bikes to cars, but acknowledges that Canadian cities have been developed primarily with cars in mind, so if we're going to drive, let's make them all EVs!(But let's get EV buses and take those where possible first.)
