Top U.S. utilities collaborate to build electric vehicle charging stations

Six major utilities unveiled a plan on Tuesday to add electric vehicle fast chargers to connect major highway systems across United States, as they look to cater to the burgeoning electric vehicle market.

The Electric Highway Coalition – made up of American Electric Power, Dominion Energy D.N>, Duke Energy, Entergy Corp, Southern Co and Tennessee Valley Authority – is looking to provide charging stations within their service territories from the Atlantic Coast, through the Midwest and South, and into the Gulf and Central Plains regions.
