Electric Vehicle Charging Station - at a Walgreens! eVgo Freedom Station
Ok, this was a first for me. Right into the corner of a Walgreens parking lot in Mansfield, Texas will soon be an operational electric vehicle charging station. Wonder what type of juice this thing will kick out, 440 maybe? Get you charged up after just sitting there for what, an hour? If anyone has any facts and figures on this, let me know as I'd love to get the low-down.
eVgo Freedom Station is what they call it.

The Walmart by my parents house used to have recharging station as the first like 4 spots on every row. They were never used and everyone hated them wasting spots. True electric cars are a few years off , the volts the only way to go for realistic Dailey driving. Plus those batteries are worse on the environment than our truck are at the end of the day2009 chevy 1500 z71 4x4

.They probably are 240 and 440 440 takes 30 minutes to charge costs more .
Would not be much cheaper than gas if charge with 440. 240 takes 4 hours cost 2 cents per mile .

I work in downtown Raleigh and park in a parking deck owned by Progress/Duke Engergy and they have had a few of these in the parking deck for about 2 years now. If they are designed for quick charging, I would assume 440, but the Energy company mafia does not have to technically pay for their power, they just bill themselves back and write it off.
