New solar-powered electric charging stations come to Lansing

In 2010, theLansing Board of Water & Light (BWL) established its Plug-in Electric Vehicle Community Project. With funding from the U.S. department of Energy, the BWL installed an array of electric vehicle charging stations across the Lansing area to promote this emerging technology.  Now, the utility is taking another step towards building an electric car infrastructure.  

In celebration of Earth Day, officials are dedicating a new solar-powered electric charging station at the new City Market in downtown Lansing. Current State’s Kevin Lavery speaks with project manager Angie Goodman about how the BWL is preparing for a day when cars become a normal part of “the grid.”
