The June 7-June 13, 2010 issue of Bloomberg Businessweek had an article called “A New Meaning for the Phrase “Charge It” alerting the business community to the demands electric cars will have for power:
“Two chargers are needed for each car” – one at home and one at work.”
There’s an iPhone app for drivers of electric cars to locate chargers.
People are reporting “range anxiety” – the fear of being stranded with drained batteries.
As President Obama and the car industry march forward with the push for lessening America’s reliance on foreign oil more and more drivers will be looking for a place to “charge it.”
What if public libraries across the country became known for having charging stations? Not a bad marketing idea eh?
If you are lucky enough to be planning a new building, major expansion or just redoing your parking lot consider integrating a charging station into your plans, your community may (eventually) thank you!
