Nissan continues down its unmatched path to electrify the U.S. one CHAdeMO fast charger at a time. Or, in this case, two CHAdeMOs at a time.
Nissan recently donated two CHAdeMO quick chargers to the city of Portland, Maine.
These chargers are located at the South Portland Community Center and the Fore Street Garage in Portland, and are are among the first quick-charge facilities in southern Maine.
Fred Garbo, a Nissan LEAF owner from Norway, Maine says that he can now travel from Norway to Portland and back much quicker than before:
“Instead of four hours, it took 20 minutes (to charge). That’s a big deal.”
The pair of CHAdeMO fast charger were donated by Nissan through its partnership with Central Maine Power and the cities of Portland and South Portland.
Aside from these two quick chargers, one other CHAdeMO unit can be found in Maine at a Nissan dealership in Bangor.
