The Daily Citizen : Electric vehicle charging stations coming to Dalton

Dalton could soon become a stopping point for drivers of electric cars.
The City Council voted 4-0 Monday to provide space for electric charging stations on city-owned property downtown and on College Drive.
ECOtality will provide the stations for free as well as provide a rebate to cover the costs of installing the stations. The city will split the revenue for those stations equally with ECOtality.
“This came out of the alternative fuel vehicles roadshow a couple of weeks ago,” said Dalton Mayor David Pennington. “Public Service Commissioner Tim Echols told us this company is putting together a network of charging stations and asked that Dalton be part of it.
City Administrator Ty Ross said ECOtality has secured federal funding to install the charging stations. ECOTality officials could not be reached immediately Monday. Ross said that he believes they will move “as swiftly as possible” to install the stations.
There are already fueling stations in Kennesaw and a station is planned for Calhoun.
