Iowa 80 Truckstop, dubbed the “world’s largest truckstop,” has installed two DC fast ChargePoint electric vehicle charging stations. The stations can charge up to a 128kw vehicle.
These are universal, self-service chargers can charge any brand of electric vehicle to 80% in 20 to 30 minutes.
Iowa 80 began this project over a year ago by first installing a substation that can provide 760kw of charging power to EV chargers; providing the option to add more charging stations in the future.
“At Iowa 80 Truckstop, we are committed to serving customers to help them on their journey, whether it’s a hot meal, snacks, gifts, gas or an EV charge. They can count on us to keep up with the times and adapt to their needs,” says Delia Moon Meier, Iowa 80 Truckstop’s senior vice president.
For those traveling across Interstate 80 between Chicago and Des Moines, Iowa, the charging stations are located just north of the gas islands on the property.
