Madison Inaugurates First of Six Public Charging Stations
Given the suspected link between fossil fuel emissions and global warming, Madison Gas & Electric picked the ideal location Thursday to tout gasoline-free driving: an asphalt parking lot on a 90-degree summer scorcher.
With a noon sun blazing, the local utility unveiled an electric car charging station behind its headquarters building on East Main Street -- one of six stations planned around town.
Using a personalized swipe card, drivers can access the charger and literally refill on electricity. A computer tracks the amount of juice used and bills a customer's account accordingly.
