There are some practical things to owning an electric vehicle (EV) that consumers might be wary of – the price, the logistics, how to maintain it or how to charge it.
Today, ECOtality and SRP Utility are making it easier than ever to charge an EV and quell some of those consumer fears.
The two companies are meeting in Arizona on Feb. 25 to mark the mass installation of EV chargers as part of the $230 million DOE-funded EV Project and the largest EV infrastructure rollout in U.S. history.
Over the next two weeks, ECOtality will be installing more than 15,000 Blink chargers all over the country. These chargers can fully charge a Nissan LEAF in just 30 minutes; a standard 220/240V charge would take almost seven hours.
This marks a milestone not only for the EV industry, but also for Americans keen on investing in an EV.
