Electric Cars: New Charging Stations

In the last two months of the year, the Costa Rican Electricity Institute will install 28 new battery recharging stations for this type of vehicle at various points nationwide.

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Because the new stations are quick rechargeable, they will be able to charge the battery of electric cars in less than 40 minutes and will have the most popular types of connectors globally.

The stations will have the necessary equipment to charge vehicles with combo 1 connectors, which are common in American and European cars, Chadermo, which are used by Japanese and Asian units, and Gbt, which are used by cars assembled in China.

Nacion.com reviews that according to the Regulation of Electric Recharge Centers, the new stations should "... be installed in places like Alajuela, Heredia, Quepos, Jacó, Guápiles, Sixaola, among others."

The article adds that "... With this installation, electric car users would find a recharging station belonging to ICE at least every 80 kilometers. In addition to the 28 electric chargers, the Institute has another 46 active points."
