Most if not all EVs charge at home. People charges elsewhere doesn't have time to wait much.michelb wrote: ↑Jan 11th, 2019 8:49 amMetrolinx removes 12 EV charging stations at GO stations

Doesn't affect me but I was pretty surprised to read this. Seems pretty short-sighted. They state very little usage since installation in 2017 but I'd be more interested in usage during the past year (according to this article https://www.building.ca/electric-car-sa ... t-in-2009/, more EV sales in 2018 than 3 previous years combined ...). They also state $2000 / year operation fee which seems really high; after the cost of the EVSE and the installation cost, I wouldn't expect it to cost very much to operate ...
IMO, until we have a consensus on what a 150kw charger is like and all cars supports the same standard, it's stupid to invest in chargers. @ 150kw, you can get ~200km into battery in about the same time you spent at the gas pump.
