USA: Drivers Now Have Quick-Charge Coverage From Washington To California

Anyone recently wanting to drive their electric vehicle from Washington to California may have been adding a few extra days to their travel to ensure enough time to charge their cars up to full capacity. However, five new quick-charge stations installed along the interstate system now give EV drivers the opportunity to charge up in 30 minutes or less.

These new quick-charge stations complete the Oregon portion of the West Coast Electric Highway with five new locations:

Southeast Portland Burgeville
Woodburn Elmer’s Restaurant
Clackamas Town Center
Wilsonville Town Center
Shari’s Restaurant in Keizer

The West Coat Electric Highway connects British Columbia to Baja, California along the I-5 corridor. When fully completed, the Highway will span 1,300 miles and have public quick-charge stations every 25 to 60 miles.

These five latest charging stations added to the Highway were installed as part of a pilot program led by Portland General Electric (PGE) in an effort to complete the Highway in Oregon, and used Blink DC Fast Chargers manufactured by ECOtality.
