USA: First Fast-Charging Station On West Coast Electric Highway: Work Starts

While dreams of a “Hydrogen Highway” along the West Coast have languished, the states of Washington and Oregon are moving ahead on plans to make Interstate-5 the first “electric highway” in the nation.

Yesterday, a small ground-breaking ceremony took place in the Sehome Village Shopping Center in Bellingham, Washington, for the first of a network of DC fast-charging stations to be located along the West Coast Electric Highway running along I-5 through both states.

Together, Oregon and Washington intend to make it possible for electric-car drivers to recharge their battery packs every 40 to 60 miles at a network of DC fast-charging stations.

Those CHAdeMO charging stations can refill a typical electric-car lithium-ion battery pack to 80 percent of its capacity in less than an hour.
