N.C. Unveils Electric Vehicle Charging Station at Rest Area
January 16, 2012
North Carolina has installed EV charging stations in rest areas near Burlington on Interstate 40, and at the junction of Interstates 95 and 40. The state is providing the charging service free of charge due to federal laws prohibiting commercial services at interstate rest areas. Raleigh-based Praxis Technologies Inc. provided the stations through a grant from the state Commerce Department. Fuel retailers should be alarmed about the state government providing transportation fuel -- in this case, electricity -- paid for with tax dollars. NATSO believes this is a strategy for state departments of transportation to help make the case that they need to have the ability to start charging for the service.
