Ohio Statehouse Going Green With Car Charging Stations
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The Ohio Statehouse in Columbus is adding six charging stations for electric vehicles at its parking garage. Â Â Â Â Staff at the Statehouse say they believe it’s the first in the nation to provide such charging stations for the public. The nearly $36,000 project is funded through contributions from several companies and a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy and the nonprofit group Clean Fuels Ohio.Â Â Â Â Â The director of board that manages the Statehouse says adding the charging stations shows the facility “is committed to going green and promoting clean energy.” Â Â Â Â The board says the stations produced by Eaton Corporation resemble gas pumps and will allow drivers to plug in and charge vehicles. They will be charged 50 cents per hour to pay for the electricity they use.
