Starting in March of 2011, additional fast-charge units will be deployed throughout the city. Places like public parking lots, gas stations, shopping malls, office buildings and apartment complexes will be evaluated to determine if installation of a fast-charge station in that location will be beneficial to the residents of the city.
Additionally, Chilectra announced that the Chilean grid is capable of handling the draw from a mass arrival of electric cars. The electricity supplier estimates that without any modifications, Santiago's grid could cope with an influx of 200,000 electric vehicles. That's a lot of Nissan Leafs, which are expected to hit the Chilean market in 2012. Hat tip to Jan!
