Oregon Car Dealers Have Questions About Electric Car Project
ou spend any time on Corvallis’ Harrison or Van Buren bridges on a weekday morning, Mayor Charlie Tomlinson said, it should be apparent that a large portion of the city’s traffic comes from commuters.
Now, add those commuters to the traffic created by people who live and work in town: It all becomes part of the equation about where to place charging stations for electric vehicles, or EV for short.
“It’s not a science; it’s more of an art,” Tomlinson told owners of Corvallis auto dealerships Friday. “It’s knowing the patterns of your community and also your region.”
Oregon is slated to get about 2,000 charging stations as part of the public-private EV Project, and Tomlinson said he’s talking with the mayors of Albany and Eugene about where to place the stations locally.
