Wed 8-14-2019

(Estherville)-- One of the first charging stations for electric vehicles has been installed in the region.

Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative announced today (Wed.) it has installed a station in the parking lot at their headquarters in Estherville.

ILEC officials say the charging station will provide a new opportunity for drivers heading south off Interstate 90 as it is located between two Tesla supercharging stations: one 42 miles to the west and and the other 77 miles to the east.

The level 2, 240-volt charging station includes two charging ports providing about 10 to 20 miles of battery range for every hour the vehicle is plugged in.
