Owners of electric cars will soon have a place to charge their vehicles. Mayor Ed Lee recently announced that the city will be installing 80 new electric car charging stations. The stations will be located at city-owned parking garages, SFO and, possibly, select public libraries and installations will begin next month.
Those drivers with electric cars who find it difficult to find spots around the Bay Area at which to charge their vehicles will be pleased that $3.9 million was just just approved by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District to increase the number of in-home and roadside electric vehicle charging stations. The public stations should be ready to go by the end of the year.
