Turnpike Gets Car-Charging Stations

The Pennsylvania turnpike has been awarded $1 million to install electric car-charging stations at 17 service stations along the interstate. Car Charging Group L.L.C. got the contract and will begin installing the stations at rest stops under construction between Harrisburg and Jersey. Then, the stations will be added to the service plazas between Harrisburg and Ohio and finally along the Northeast Extension. The project should be completed by July 2013. [Inquirer]
