On Tuesday morning, Cape Hatteras Electric
Cooperative (CHEC) announced that its two new public electric vehicle
(EV) charging stations were up and running.
One station is installed in Rodanthe in the
parking lot of Kitty Hawk Kites, and the second station is installed at
Hatteras Landing in Hatteras Village. The Level 2 ChargePoint stations
each have two charging ports and are capable of charging any brand of
EV. On average, it will take a driver 3.5 hours to fully charge their
vehicle with a Level 2 station.
It is CHEC’s hope that the public stations will
attract new visitors to Hatteras Island and pave the way for the future
of EVs in the area.
Initially, the charging stations will be free to
use, while the cooperative collects valuable data about usage and
