Plug On In, San Antonio
The City of San Antonio cut the ribbon on six electric vehicle charging stations today. There are about 50 electric vehicles currently in use in the city, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The city covered the $10,000 total cost for the project through a Department of Energy grant. It takes about four hours to recharge a plug-in hybrid like the Chevy Volt.
There are already two solar charging stations at the airport, the Express reports, bringing the number of city charging stations to eight. The stations are free to use.
