By Andrew Tobias

Ohio has opened the first electric vehicle charging station in the country to be built and funded through the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill President Joe Biden signed more than two years ago.

The charging station is at a Pilot Travel Center at Interstate 70 and U.S. 42 in Madison County, about 25 minutes west of Columbus. The charging station, built by EVgo, has enough power to charge four vehicles simultaneously up to 80% within 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the vehicle’s battery, according to a news release from Gov. Mike DeWine’s office.
