I have just been informed that Ecotricity have announced their new DC fast charge technology for the Electric Highway.
They have teamed up with Nissan to roll out fast charge technology at 40 Welcome Break motorway service stations.
Hopwood Park, South Mimms and Oxford Welcome Break Service Stations are up and running. This means electric car owners like myself will be able to charge a Nissan Leaf or Mitsubishi iMiev in under 30 minutes.
Use of Ecotricity’s charging network is currently free – they want to encourage the take-up of electric vehicles and being able to recharge quickly is obviously a big part of this.
