North Country to get its first public electric car fast-chargers, in Lancaster 

Published: 5/19/2016 11:16:50 PM

The first public high-power charging station for electric cars in the North Country, and the first one in New Hampshire that doesn’t have Tesla written on it, will soon be unveiled at a popular Lancaster campground.

The charger, which can “fill up” an electric car in 20 minutes, will be located at Rogers Campground on Route 2, east of the center of Lancaster. Further details will be discussed Friday.

The charger was purchased and installed with an early initiative grant from the Forward New Hampshire Fund from the Northern Pass transmission project. The fund has pledged $200 million over 20 years for varous projects along the route of the proposed high-voltage transmission lines, proposed by Eversource and Hydro-Quebec.

The only public fast-charging stations in New Hampshire fit only Tesla cars, located at the Hooksett tolls on I-93 and at Seabrook Commons, near Exit 1 of I-95. A number of slower public chargers exist at car dealers, parking lots and restaurants.

Most electric-car charging is done at the owner’s home.
