Kwik Trip Installs Network of Free Electric Car Chargers

03/23/2011

LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Kwik Trip convenience stores have become a lot more convenient for owners of electric vehicles thanks to its installation of free charging stations, reported 300mpg.org.

The charge stations, which are simple electrical outlets mounted on sign poles, have been installed at up to 70 Kwik Trip locations in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. According to Kwik Trip staff, the company began adding the charging stations as it opened new stores and remodeled old ones.

120 volt-chargers provide approximately four miles of electric 'fuel' for each hour spent charging. According to the report, Kwik Trip plans to upgrade to more powerful outlets in the future. Kwik Trip gas stations also provide E85 flex fuel, a blend of gasoline and ethanol.
