Construction began in Dec 2011 on the Sehome Village Electrical Charging Station. The equipment and installation is partnered by the City of Bellingham & the Washington State Department of Transportation & is part of the West Coast Electric Highway which will provide electrical vehicle (EV) drivers with fast chargers every 50 miles or so, all the way from Oregon to Canada. This in turn is part of a larger project called the West Coast Green Highway, which will someday cover the length of Interstate 5 from British Columbia through Washington and Oregon to Baja, California.
The Bellingham charging station is located just to the South of Sehome Village Starbucks and is anticipated to be operational within a few weeks. If you happen to stop by, you’ll see some bright new equipment that will be capable of charging your car with either a “Level 2” or “Level 3” charger.
Anyway, it sounds like a great step forward along the way to becoming less dependent on fossil fuel. To learn more about electric cars & what the future may hold for them, access the on-line information at Plug in America
