Washington State Governor Gregoire issued an executive order that directs the state to develop and seek federal funds to implement a project for the electrification of the West Coast Green Highway. WSDOT is also on board. The project is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Energy with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars administered by the Department of Commerce through the State Energy Program. It will be the first border to border highway to offer fast charge technology. The electric highway will support mass-produced plug-in electric vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus and Chevrolet Volt that are now rolling off the assembly lines.
So if you own an electric car, are thinking about buying one and are planning to go on a trip along the I-5 corridor, you may be in luck! To read more....see the attached link. We will update the blog on this when we hear more..
