PGE Opens Electric Car Recharging Point in Portland
What price is low enough to entice droves of Oregonians to fill up their cars with electricity generated by Northwest wind turbines rather than gasoline made from imported fossil fuels?
How about free -- from drive-up stations across the metro area? That's the strategy Portland General Electric launched Tuesday when it unveiled the first of a dozen plug-in vehicle-charging stations it will install through September.
The utility hopes the stations -- about the size of parking meters, with a sleek blue and silver design -- will encourage ownership of plug-in electric vehicles by offering visibility, convenience -- and a hard-to-beat price. The free test period will continue for an undetermined time.
