ELECTRIC CO-OPS CREATE CHARGE EV
Regional electric vehicle charging network will alleviate range anxiety, encourage EV adoption
Jump River Electric Cooperative is among a group of 29 electric co-ops who created a regional electric vehicle (EV) charging network across Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota named CHARGE EV, LLC. The network includes over 30 Level 2 and Level 3 charging stations.
The group of co-ops is planning for future growth in EVs, and wants to alleviate “range anxiety,” which is the concern some people have about traveling in an EV without a place to charge their vehicle. The CHARGE EV infrastructure is just the start as the group plans for additional investments in the EV market including member education on installing home chargers and encouraging members to test drive EVs.
Charger locations and other information can be found at www.charge.coop.
