The Electric Circuit rolls out power-sharing fast chargers

A total of 500 kW of power is distributed among up to three connected vehicles based on their respective charging capacities.

The Electric Circuit is introducing new fast-charging stations with power sharing, making them available for the first time in Canada in the city of Rivière-du-Loup. The new satellite-based charging stations are manufactured by Kempower of Finland and distributed in Québec by Bornes Québec. Three dual-charging outlets share a total of 500 kW of power that is distributed among connected vehicles based on their respective charging capacities. Each charging cable can deliver up to 300 kW of power.

Dynamic power-sharing simplifies the charging experience by allocating the maximum power available to each user based on the vehicle’s capacity, the company said.

Users won’t have to select the power level, which will be set automatically by the charging station and billed based on the vehicle’s capacity. The rates at these fast-charge stations are determined in the same way as those that apply at the other fast-charging stations in the Electric Circuit: per-second billing based on power tiers.

The configuration of the dual-charging stations and cable management system also facilitates charging for all types of EVs, the company said. Vehicles hauling trailers and even travel trailers will be able to drive in and out, just like they do at gas stations.

The first of these new charging stations will be installed at 80 Boulevard Cartier in Rivière-du-Loup, where St-Hubert restaurant has given up part of its lot to make room for the charging point. St-Hubert is a founding member of the Electric Circuit.
