VALPARAISO | In the next five years, there could be thousands of new drivers of electric vehicles in Northern Indiana, according to an estimate from a national developer of vehicle charging station networks.

350Green LLC Project Director Winston Lin said Tuesday that as technology improves and awareness increases, there could be at least 20,000 more fleet customers and residents operating plug-in electric vehicles. Lin also said that about 266 charging stations would be needed to support the potential growth of vehicles.

350Green unveiled results of a market study and infrastructure plan to about 70 people at a forum on electric vehicles at Ivy Tech Community College’s Valparaiso campus. South Shore Clean Cities and the Northern Indiana Public Service Co. were hosts for the public event to discuss market opportunities and information for potential electric vehicle owners.
