Today’s Solutions: March 03, 2024

Sick and tired with the way fossil fuel companies structure contracts with gas stations, a gas station owner by the name of Depeswar Doley did something drastic: he waved goodbye to these companies and converted his gas station in Maryland into the first EV-only fueling station. 

In a state with more than 20,700 registered electric cars (and very few fueling stations), the new station is being welcomed with open arms. The station features four dispensers that connect to a high-powered, 200kW system. The system will allow four vehicles to charge simultaneously and reach an 80 percent battery charge in 20 to 30 minutes.

Should the driver not feel like waiting outside by their car, they can sit inside an automated convenience store next door, which has screens that allow drivers to track their vehicle’s charging progress.
