    Where are the On Route stations !?

    • Hi John, Now is the time for all of us to investigate and find the exact locations !

      • Don Weber says:

        These are the key missing piece for Highway travel !

        I have inquired with the site managers of the OnRoute locations, and all they indicate (who I Emailed anyway) is that the conduits were built there underground to the Electric Boxes. that’s a necessary but not at all sufficient condition to do an EV charging installation). MTO has not scheduled any installations or timeline for them. I will press for more details.

      Hopefully some of the Electric Circuit and Koben Systems Inc. network chargers will be at OnRoutes. ….or Canadian Tire will finally follow through with the agreement they apparently made to put them there.

    The airport should be installing lots of 120v sockets. When people fly they are usually away for a few days and just need it to trickle charge and be done by the time they get home in a few days.

    • You are right for people leaving the airport.

      Other people wait for friends/family. There will be electric taxis or electric vehicles driving with Uber or Lyft. In a few years, we will see delivery companies with a fleet of electric vehicles.

      I believe that there is a need for level 1 – 2 -3 everywhere. Let’s welcome ev charging stations. It will inspire people to install more of them 🙂

    • John says:

      I agree. Why would an airport, require 22 level 2 chargers and 10 level 3s? Even if I’m going away for a day, I wouldn’t need more than a level 2, unless, they’ll be for taxis, shuttling fares to and from the GTA.

    Who is Koben Systems? They got the most funding, but they web site looks like a group of amateurs.

    It doesn’t even work properly with Safari browser.

    • Kristyn says:

      Koben Systems are a group of amateurs, as a matter of fact, Koben Systems is a sole entity–I know this because Vic Burconak, the owner, is my brother with whom I’ve ceased all contact with following my/our mothers death from pancreatic cancer. Vic, together with his wife, took advantage of my mothers ill health and naivete and convinced her to sign all assets over to Vic stating that, if she didn’t and the will went through probate, that the gov’t would take 90% of everything. A detailed letter has been sent to Mayor Crombie and Stephen Del Duca detailing this and the many other indiscretions committed by Vic Burconak of KSI Koben Systems over the years.

  4. This is such great news!

    as a leaf owner i can say this—-i wouldn’t like to see government cash spent on level one or two—-only level three charging legitimately allows for extended travel—level 2’s should be reserved for hotel, mall or restaurant placement

    Quality sacrificed for quantity

  7. Fraser says:

    Where are those 144 Level 3 chargers from Koben going I wonder and why did they get half of the total funding?

    • Kristyn says:

      Google the owners name–Vic Burconak–and you will see that his name links more to Internet Movie Data Base and other acting related sites than his current business of installing EV charging systems. He spent almost nine years trying to become an actor while his wife brought home the pay cheque. This also contradicts his LinkedIn work history. For God’s sake he doesn’t even own an electric vehicle, his current method of transportation is giant gas-guzzling Dodge Ram pickup. I’ve sent a detailed letter to Mayor Crombie and Steven Del Duca exposing this person for the fraud that he is. and I’ve also contacted many of the local media stations well.
