SAE Combo Faster Charger Online in Portland

Portland has her first SAE Combo DC Faster Charge system. You can call CCS (combo charging system) or SAE Combo. It is located on Electric Avenue (SW 6th and Montgomery) on the Portland State campus. You can use this on the Chevy Spark and the BMW i3 (and more cars coming soon).

The cool this unit from efacec is that it has both CHAdeMO and CCS so you can charge up a Nissan Leaf, Mitsu i-MiEV, or (with an adaptor) a Tesla Model S. This is one of 5 CCS units that are planned to be installed in Oregon this year.
