USA: Charleston getting electric car charging stations (update: coming soon to a garage near you)

Update October 25: Almost two years on since word first came that six plug-in stations would be set up, they’re starting to come online.

Plug-ins for electric cars have been installed in three City of Charleston parking garages. Mayor Joe Riley, Jr., Jim Poch of Plug In Carolina, and Time Keane Director of City of Charleston Department of Planning, Preservation and Sustainability will demonstrate the chargers today, October 25.

Update December 23, 2010: The Post and Courier has started talking up the six or so electric car charging stations that are soon to be installed in Charleston parking garages.

The initiative is costing about $52,000, but once the stations are set up, the city estimates that it should cost less than $300 in 2011 to provide the free power and about $500 in the third year of the initiative as the number of electric vehicles grows.
