Virginia Installs First Plug-in Station

Virginia will be setting up charging stations for plug-in hybrids in selected rest areas. The first one has already been installed at the westbound New Kent Safety Rest Area on Interstate 64. It can charge up to four vehicles at a time.

At 120 Volts, it's going to take a long time for a car to recharge, but I suppose if you have half an hour, it can't hurt to plug in.  Also, use is complimentary.

Virginia plans to upgrade to 240 Volts for faster charging.

Funding for the installation comes from Dominion Virginia and is not coming from the state.

"I am pleased to work with Dominion to provide clean fuel alternatives for the citizens of Virginia and implement another recommendation of my Climate Change Commission," Governor Kaine said. "The charging stations will help promote hybrid electric vehicles, meet the future needs of our vehicle fleet, and help budget conscious Virginians in a tough time."
