USA: Electric-car charging stations at Wickford Junction, Warwick train stations

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — In reporting a story on the very cool command center at the RIDOT’s Traffic Management Center, I learned that the new commuter-train station at Wickford Junction has six charging stations for electric cars. An additional three are at the parking garage at the Warwick station.

Not clear what it costs to charge up your plug-in — it might even be free, for the time being.

The idea is that commuters can charge their cars while away at work. The station has little traffic right now, but the RIDOT sees that changing as it projects general traffic out into the 2020s.

“It’s a resource for the future,” said spokesman Charles St. Martin
