With the rise in the numbers of electric vehicles (EVs), the proliferation of local charge stations is becoming important in enhancing range confidence to maximize the benefits of all-electric driving.
With support from Nissan and ABB Inc., the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) has installed two EV fast chargers on their campus for public use.
The two new UWM stations are the first EV fast-charge stations in Milwaukee County. They bring the number of fast-charge stations in Wisconsin to four: ABB offers one to the general public at its New Berlin facility and another is available in Madison.
The two new DC stations, which will charge EVs in 30 to 90 minutes, are the latest addition to UWM’s other two AC charge stations. The AC stations take between four and eight hours to charge a vehicle, says Mike Priem, a senior facilities planning specialist in UWM’s Parking & Transportation division.
