A group want to install up to 100 plug-in stations for electric cars at cities across South Carolina.
The Greenville News reports Plug-in Carolina is already looking for local contractors to help a company called AeroVironment install the stations.
Plug-in Carolina plans to have between 60 to 100 stations where drivers could recharge their electric cars installed in Greenville, Spartanburg, Union, Charleston, Columbia, Myrtle Beach and Rock Hill.
The group says each plug-in station costs about $7,500 and are being paid for with state and federal grants.
Plug-in Carolina says the public recharge stations are mostly for convenience, while most charging of the cars would take place in homes during non-peak hours for utilities.
