NORMAL — A Level 3 DC Quick Charge station is open in the Uptown Station parking deck, allowing electric car owners the opportunity to charge their vehicles’ batteries to 80 percent in about 30 minutes.

The station, the first of its kind in Illinois outside the Chicago area, is located on the deck’s second level.

“Being able to charge mid-day in 20 to 30 minutes really opens up the potential range of an electric vehicle in a day,” EVTown Task Force chairman Joe Mikulecky said in a press release issued Monday. “Travelers along Old Route 66 will find it particularly appealing as they plan their trip along the interstate corridor.”
