Route 66 Charging Stations
Excerpted from an article in Central Illinois’ Journal-Courier
Not only will drivers be able to get their kicks on Route 66, soon they will find recharging stations for their electric cars along the Macoupin County section of the historic highway.
The state is investing $1 million to establish a network of charging stations for electric vehicles along the historic U.S. 66 through Illinois. The network will support commuter and tourist driving for the growing electric vehicle sector, according to Gov. Pat Quinn.
“We are building a 21st century infrastructure across Illinois and we need to make sure that it is sustainable for future generations,” Quinn said. “This new project exemplifies Illinois’ place as the innovation capital of the Midwest, with cutting-edge business practices that create jobs and encourage sustainability.”
The cities of Plainfield, Dwight, Pontiac, Normal, Lincoln, Springfield, Carlinville and Edwardsville will each install one or more fast-charging stations that are easily accessible from the popular route, allowing electric vehicle drivers to retrace its original pathway. Each of the seven charging points in the network will include one fast-charging station capable of charging vehicles with either CHAdeMO or SAE connectors within 15-20 minutes and one level two charging station.
