San Francisco Installs Free Car Charging Stations [Headlines]
To combat pollution and rising gas prices, the city is planning to create 80 public stations.
SF Gate reports:
San Francisco will install more than 80 free charging stations for electric vehicles by the end of the year, as part of City Hall’s eco-friendly resolve to reduce air pollution.
Monday’s announcement by Mayor Ed Lee came as the average price for a gallon of gas in San Francisco hit the $4.32 mark – $1.09 higher than a year ago, according to data tracked by the AAA auto club. That’s a dramatic price escalation expected to drive the public’s appetite for more fuel-efficient cars.
