USA: 1st fast charging station for electric vehicles is on the grid at Midway Airport

Chicago’s first charging station capable of powering up an electric vehicle within half an hour has been installed at Midway International Airport.

The charging station at 61st Street and Cicero Avenue at the airport’s cellphone waiting lot is the first of 73 such stations scheduled for installation in Chicago and the suburbs by year’s end. A second is scheduled for installation this week at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The installations are significant because studies have shown that consumers want to be able to charge electric vehicles within minutes, not hours, and that electric vehicles are unlikely to be adopted widely if such chargers aren’t readily available and conveniently located.
