Map of FREE EV Charging Stations in WI, IA, MN at Kwik-Trip gas stations

Hey folks,

You may recall that this spring I managed to find a free EV charging station at a GAS STATION!

I've been working with their people to see if we can get some information out to the public on where all these are. I finally got a list of the addresses of Kwik-Trips with EV charging, and put them together on a Google map.

Please do a search in Google maps for
"Kwik Trip EV charging Stations" and you'll find the one I just made.

I made a custom Google Map, but I'm not really sure how to find a perma-link to it. Try the search link I posted and let me know if it works for you.

This is hot off the presses, people! They don't even have this information listed the Kwik-Trip web page. I actually think that's kinda cool. They haven't been doing this to get "green-washed" publicity or anything. They just started putting out electric outlets with a sign for EV Charging!

Did I mention it's FREE to charge there? Granted, it's only level 1, but it's just pretty cool to see any private business out there making EV charging available.

This is 39 locations so far.
If you have already seen a Google map this summer with the Kwik-Trip stations, that only listed 25 stations, this is the latest and greatest info here now.

Ben, I just did a google map search and didn't find the map you are talking about, any way for you to link it?
Thanks for doing this, I haven't checked the Kwik Trips stores near me, but there are two in town and at least another one just a few miles away so as soon as I get the new on board charger put in my electric car I'll have to tour them, the two that are farthest away also have resterants, so you have more reason to spend an hour or so there.

Hmmm.

Try this as a link:
Kwik-Trip EV Charging Stations - Google Maps

Also, a friend told me about Plug Share, which is really just a fancy custom google map, but it has TONS of outlets listed on it, both commercial, and people's homes where they volunteer to let other EV'ers charge there.
