A new SAE Combo Fast Charger has shown up at a Royal Farms store at Ridley Park, Exit 8 off of Interstate 95 near Philadelphia.
It appears that this station may be part of the East Coast Express Charging Corridor that was announced in January at the 2015 Washington Auto Show by BMW, Volkswagen and ChargePoint. The verbiage in the description on the ChargePoint App suggests that it indeed is. It says, “SAE Combo connector for BMW i3 and VW e-Golf” but does not mention the Chevrolet Spark EV which also uses the SAE Combo connector. I imagine that is because the East Coast Express is being funded by BMW of North America and Volkswagen of America.
ROYAL FARMS STORE #202
105 Stewart Ave, Ridley Park, PA 19078
Although this charging station is at a Royal Farms store, it is not part of the EVIP program in Maryland. The stations at the Royal Farms in Maryland are part of a state grant and have both CHAdeMO and SAE Combo connectors.
