Well it’s not the Cubs vs. Cardinals but the two cities are always competing. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates the U.S. will have 15 Million electric vehicles on the road by 2030.  This week Missouri and Illinois each released a look into their electric vehicle plans.

In Illinois:

  • Chicago will need to support 80,000 electric cars
  • 2,700 public charging stations will be required
  • Costs range from $80,000-$100,000
  • Today: only 34 fast charging stations are located in all of northeastern Illinois

In Missouri:

  • Ameren piloted a program in 2016
  • Proposal to install 1,200 charging plugs in its territory
  • Ameren would partner with companies to operate the charging stations
  • Ameren estimates the costs at $20,000-$50,000 for each charging station

All states and cities are looking at the infrastructure and locations for installing electric charging stations. They understand the coming demand.
