Northeast States Teaming Up to Build EV Charging Network


The West Coast has wasted no time building electric vehicle corridors, but so far the Northeast has lagged behind on electric car infrastructure, especially considering the size of the population there.  Luckily, the lagging behind will soon end.  A new regional initiative called the Northeast Electric Vehicle Network will bring together 11 states plus Washington, D.C. to build an electric car charging network.  The network plans to bring hundreds of chargers online over the next couple of years to encourage adoption of EVs in the region.

The states participating are Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and viagra pills for sale uk Vermont. Maine will be represented on a city level instead of canada cialis prescription statewide.  The states will team up with automakers, both large retailers and small shops and charging network companies to work on placing charging stations in the most convenient locations.

Out of the 15,000 EVs currently on wow)) levitra india pharmacy the www.drk-dillenburg.de road in the U.S., surprisingly only about 1,000 of them are in the Northeast.  These states want to encourage more EV use not just for environmental reasons, but also because it will save them money.  The Northeast imports about 25 billion gallons of oil each year, so if all-electric vehicles replaced just 5 percent of conventional ones, the region could save $4.6 billion every year.  I'd call that a win-win.

If President Obama's call for one million plug-in vehicles on the road by 2015 comes to fruition, based on population, about 200,000 will be hitting Northeastern roads.  Good thing those drivers will have a place to charge up.

Electric Vehicle Charging Points
written by Samma Prest, November 02, 2011
I'd like to report the number of EV charging points I have recently been noticing in England. I live in the North East, and when going to get the train the other day I noticed two new charging stations. This would have been enough for me, but I also noticed them appearing in Newcastle later that week. It makes me feel happy that we are, as a country, taking steps to enable those of us that are environmentally concerned to start making our changes and recieving the support of local councils installing these points is one giant step in the right direction. smilies/smiley.gif

Electric cars may lead to increased taxes
written by Richard Romfh, November 10, 2011
Electric, hybrid, and fuel efficient cars have decreased the sale of gas and collection of canadian pharmacy ed gas-tax revenues to the point where it's affecting highway maintenance. In Tennessee, the governor says they might have to viagra online without prescription raise gas taxes or invent some other tax to cover needed repairs. I suggest turning the interstates into toll roads.
