Jackson Looks at Installing Electric Car Chargers
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — People who drive hybrids and electric cars may soon be able to recharge their vehicles for free in Jackson.
The Jackson Hole Energy Sustainability Project has recommended that the Jackson Town Council set up charging stations at several points in the town.
The stations would have single parking spaces that would be reserved for electric cars.
There are only three fully electric cars registered in Teton County.
But proponents hope the stations will encourage commuters and Jackson Hole’s 4 million annual visitors to consider using more electric transportation.
Shelley Simonton, of the energy sustainability project, tells the Jackson media that she anticipates little use at first, but if electric vehicles start to catch on in Jackson Hole, the town could charge for the electricity.
