Feds: More companies to add electric vehicle recharge stations

Washington — The Energy Department said Tuesday more private companies have agreed to add charging stations for plug-in vehicles. Companies include social media giant Facebook Inc. and media services company Bloomberg LP.

The effort is part of the Energy Department’s push to boost electric vehicles.

The government said 15 new firms and one city are joining the effort, including AVL, Bentley Systems, Biogen Idec, Coca-Cola Co., the City of Sacramento, Dell, Hartford Financial Services Group, Hertz Corp., National Grid, New York Power Authority, NRG Energy, Raytheon and Southern California Edison.

The firms agreed to sign a pledge to assess workforce demand for charging stations for electric vehicles, and then install a station for at least one major worksite.

Last month, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg called for making the city a national leader in electric vehicles.

He called for 10,000 parking spaces for electric vehicles in seven years.
