Tesla’s latest EV infrastructure push involves deployment of 39 charging stations outside Chicago
In a move which marks the latest electric-vehicle infrastructure push by Tesla Motors, the company has put forth a new proposal for the deployment of 39 free-to-use charging stations near Chicago.
The proposal marks a new advance for Tesla’s electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure program under which the company bears the cost of the deployment of new charging stations for its own EVs as well as other electric cars.
Of late, EV charging stations are being deployed by Tesla directly with municipalities. The company has inked deals in Norfolk, Virginia and Barrie, Ontario, for the deployment of more than 100 charging stations combined.
So far as its latest EV infrastructure push is concerned, 39 free-to-use EV charging stations will be deployed by the company in Elgin, a city with a population of over 100,000 people, located just outside of Chicago. 22 of the proposed 39 charging stations will be Tesla’s Wall Connectors and the remaining will be universal chargers for other EVs.
According to a recent Chicago Tribune report, Tesla will pay the installation cost of $109,629 for deploying the 30 proposed EV charging stations on Elgin municipal property, provided the electricity cost for the people charging are covered by the city.
