Governor Pat Quinn Rolls Out Nation’s Largest Electric Vehicle Fast-Charging Network

On March 29th, 2012, 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.

As part of Governor Quinn’s commitment to increasing sustainability across Illinois, the initiative will support the use of electric vehicles and create jobs in sustainable transportation. Motorists 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.
