April 03, 2012

SCHILLER PARK, IL – Governor Pat Quinn and representatives from the Illinois Tollway, 350Green LLC, and 7-Eleven, Inc. announced the availability of the nation’s largest network of fast-charging electric vehicle (EV) stations.

Users can charge an electric vehicle in under 30 minutes using the current fast-chargers at 7-Eleven sites at four Tollway Oasis locations, and will soon be able to charge vehicles at all seven Tollway Oases, according to Chicago-based JNS Power & Control Systems, which performed the installations.

Through the Chicago-Area EV Infrastructure Project, 26 fast-chargers have been installed, with 73 total fast-chargers planned. Eight of these are currently in place at Tollway Oases along the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway at the Des Plaines Oasis and on the Tri-State Tollway at the Lake Forest Oasis, O’Hare Oasis, and Chicago Southland Lincoln Oasis.
