bet their future on EVs.Regional alliances are emerging as utilities join with one another—and with charging-station builders and government agencies—to plan the thousands of charging stations needed to bridge the gaps between U.S. cities.The largest such group, the Electric Highway Coalition—which includes the Tennessee Valley Authority, Duke Energy Corp. and American Electric Power Co. —plans to announce this week that it is more than doubling its utility members to 14, adding Consolidated Edison Inc. of New York, Exelon Corp. and Avangrid Inc. among others, as it seeks to build an EV charging network spanning much of the South, Midwest and East Coast. A separate coalition of utilities in the Midwest and Plains states has grown from six to 10 members since last fall.

More fast-charging stations, which repower a battery in about 30 minutes instead of over a period of hours, are the missing ingredient required to enable an electric version of the American road trip. Current EVs can travel a few hundred miles or less before needing to plug in. headtopics.com

Watch: Turtle stranded on Cape Cove rescued by volunteers - CNN Video

Volunteers from three organizations have moved the massive reptile back into the ocean and will continue to monitor its progress.

How much does it cost to charge the car? Not very profitable for recharging stations owners. Cars sit in the stall for 30 minutes instead of 5 -10 minutes. You’ll need more stations, cars are still the same size so you’ll need more area. The math is better for urban areas.

T'h'a'c'k'e'r Pass, Nevada, Thread to Watch/read: Yeah and if we can solve the Voting Rights attack on this country and get back to rebuilding it it's part of the infrastructure deal that will transform us into a 21st century power again. Duh! Another reason for the peasants to vehemently support the oil and gas companies, eh ? Cause climate change is a myth, eh WSj.....love how hard you are tryin to keep the 1950s going....love it....

The real game changer - globally - will be next generation batteries All sources of energy count with an environmental impact.

The hybrid EV still seems the best of both worlds, although ppl who own Teslas swear by them and that the national charging network works for them. Developing world on EVs would be the game changer for environment, sustainable and health. Yes, fast chargers deployment would certainly mark American EV road trip boom.

Great. The line will only be an 8 hour wait! No thanks. The issue is grid capacity. If we can add more capacity, you’d see more of these chargers
