Electric vehicle drivers, take note! There is a new level II charger making your trips in northwest Minnesota that much easier!
The sweet city of Halstad (pop. 564) in Northwest Minnesota is located at the intersection of Highway 75 (running north) and highway 200 (running west into North Dakota). With the help of a CERTs Seed Grant, a level II EV charging station is now available! Thanks to ZEF Energy, Halstad Municipal Utilities and local contractors, the station opened at the end of May 2023.
“This is a local investment that will help alleviate range anxiety and be able to help
support the Minnesota corridors for EV stations,” says Lucas Spaeth with Halstad Municipal Utilities. “Our public charger was used in the first 24 hours of operation,” he noted.
“We believe this will serve as a growth opportunity for the EV markets and the whole of Norman County. We have fast chargers available in neighboring counties, but this is the first public charger in our Norman county.” -Lucas Spaeth with Halstad Municipal Utilities
Now there are no excuses to not visit the world’s largest Sugar Beet… The charging station is mere feet away from the statute!
