DOE adds support for electric vehicle infrastructure with new $5M program, Google project

By / April 19, 2011

Credit: DOE, GeoEVSE. The DOE’s conference-call news conference today was FUBAR’d, apparently for technical reasons, so some of the facts that follow might not be totally right. Thus forewarned, I report that the agency announced that it will be providing $5 million to local governments to build out infrastructure it says is needed for electric…
