Charging Stations

Six electric vehicle charging stations
near Goodland, Kansas
August 2015
I love to see "new" things while on trips, and these charging stations for electric cars are definitely something that I haven't seen locally. These six stations were in the parking lot of a Holiday Inn Express just west of Goodland, Kansas.


I was curious and Googled "electric car charging stations" and discovered there is a station in my community (that was a complete surprise) as well as numerous others in Wyoming.

This technology is foreign to me, so I did more research:
    •  how long does it take to charge an electric car?
    •  how many miles can an electric car travel on a charge?
    •  how much does it cost to charge an electric car?

Do you know anyone who owns an electric car and has used a charging station? Have you seen charging stations in your community?

  1. I know a few people that own electric golf carts, but no one with all electric cars. I haven't noticed any charging stations around the area either.

  3. Interesting post! I wonder about the initial price of the car compared to a regular gas-burning vehicle and the total cost differential over the long run. Cool photo.

  6. In a neighboring town (Winter Park), there are several charging areas.

    If I were a rich woman I think I would be buying one of those Tesla cars. They are gorgeous!

  8. My brother test-drove a Tesla and was really impressed. So,in talking to him, I knew there were charging stations going up all over the country. I didn't know there were so many in WY!
