DeWine Officially Opens First NEIV Car-Charging Station

MADISON CO., Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The state of Ohio was at the front of the line when it came to federal National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure funding.

So that $140 million over the next five years will support a number of fast-charging stations for EVs around the state.

The first one officially opened Thursday at a Pilot truck stop west of Columbus.

Even when four car batteries are charging simultaneously, the governor’s office says they can hit 80-percent of charged capacity in 20 to 40 minutes.
