Energy News Network: Municipal utilities putting EV charging on the map in southern Minnesota

EXCERPT: “A municipal power utility Monday announced one of the largest ever investments in electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Greater Minnesota. The nonprofit Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (SMMPA) plans to install 17 DC (direct current) fast chargers and 68 Level 2 chargers next year. The chargers will be placed in nearly all of the communities served by the agency’s 18 member utilities. ZEF Energy, the largest privately owned charging company in Minnesota and Wisconsin, will partner with the SMMPA on the project. The agency will pay for the chargers but require members to install electrical connections, said Chris Schoenherr, SMMPA’s director of agency and government relations and chief external affairs officer.” FULL STORY:
