The state’s three biggest electric utilities are proposing to create a dozen fast-charging stations for electric vehicles along interstates in New Hampshire, using money from the Volkswagen emissions-rigging settlement to create the state’s first such network open to cars other than Tesla.

“What we’re going to propose is to electrify the tourism corridors – interstates 93, 89, 95 – so that individuals who own electric vehicles have a place to recharge, aren’t waiting 8 hours to charge a vehicle, but 15 minutes in and out,” said Bill Quinlan, president of Eversource New Hampshire operations during a discussion Thursday morning at a Concord Chamber of Commerce forum on energy.
