The new Horizon Energy DC fast charger in Whakatane will be open and ready for use on Monday.
It's a "Terra 53" (the ABB unit used by Vecotor, WEL, Unison and others) charging station with 2 x 50kw DC CHAdeMO ports and 2 x Mennekes Type 2 and 2 x CCS (type 2) (according to the Plugshare entry).
It's at 35 Quay St, Whakatane.
This opens up Opotiki and the East Cape to EVs as well as making Gisborne a possibility (182km) with a short top-up along the way, perhaps at Matawai.
Of course, if you have a Tesla with a big battery you can go anywhere you want right now. No problem.
