MESA, AZ – GoE3 is launching plans for a coast-to-coast Level 2 and 3 charging station network to make interstate travel possible for electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in EVs.
While metropolitan charging stations for electric vehicles already exist, many are Level 2, 30 Amp. Those being planned by GoE3 will be Level 2, 70 Amp or higher, the most fully functional on the market, and will support all modern electric vehicles and long-range travel. GoE3 will introduce the first installment of the total 500 charging stations planned in conjunction with a road rally and reality TV show being produced this summer, according to the company.
GoE3 is working with multiple partners to install charging stations and benefit local communities along interstate highways I-40, I-10, I-20 and I-70 with a station located every 50-75 miles. For Level 3 chargers, the costs will be $12.50 for a full charge and take 10 to 45 minutes, depending on how depleted the battery is. The company will roll out the route of its first 50 planned locations by April 21 with the remaining 450 in the next 18-36 months. A complete route from Flagstaff to Tucson has been secured.
GoE3 has selected the Tucson, Ariz.-based Biosphere 2 complex for its launch event.
