USA: California-based Tesla Motors exploring electric car charging station in SD

MITCHELL, S.D. — A California-based electric car company might one day be generating a buzz in Mitchell.

During a noon meeting today in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 612 N. Main St., the Mitchell Planning and Zoning Commission plans to discuss an inquiry from Tesla Motors regarding the zoning and permitting procedures for an electric car charging station in the city.

According to City Planner Neil Putnam, the city’s code is silent regarding electric car charging stations.

“We would probably need to amend the code,” Putnam said. “I just wanted to get some initial feedback from the commission and see what they think.”

Putnam made clear that, to his knowledge, Tesla has no specific plans right now to build a charging station in Mitchell.

“They’re more likely exploring what they would do if they ever wanted to build something in Mitchell,” he said.
