The EV fast charger hub is expected to be fully operational in early 2022.

Construction of a new electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging hub in the heart of Madison's Capitol East District is nearly complete. Located at the intersection of East Washington Avenue and South Livingston Street, the hub will feature some of the fastest charging stations in the Midwest.

"Our new fast-charging hub will provide convenient EV charging—powered by renewable energy—for nearby commuters, EV fleet vehicles, taxi and ridesharing services, as well as apartment and condo dwellers and single family households," said Debbie Branson, MGE Manager of Electrification.

"Electrification is a key strategy for reducing carbon emissions and achieving net-zero carbon electricity by mid-century. Quick and easy EV charging will help to enable the growth of cleaner, more sustainable transportation options," Branson added.

The hub will feature eight fast charger stalls with power levels up to 350 kilowatts, which will allow for charging approximately 12 to 18 miles per minute. Through a partnership with Tesla, the hub also has eight Superchargers.
