USA: More Taxpayer-Funded Electric Car Charging Stations Unveiled

A project to build the biggest electric car charging network in the Northwest kicks into higher gear this week. The first public charging stations in that taxpayer-financed network will be unveiled at ceremonies outside Portland Tuesday and in Seattle later this week. Correspondent Tom Banse reports this comes after a delay.

The federal economic stimulus package is paying for about 1,000 public charging stations in the central Puget Sound region and another thousand in western Oregon from Portland to Ashland. These installs are happening months later than originally planned. EV Project Pacific Northwest manager Rich Feldman says the slow deployment is partly tied to the sluggish deliveries of plug-in cars.
