South Carolina Adopts EV Charging Stations

Jan 11, 2011

Plug In Carolina, a nonprofit group coordinating state efforts to build an electric vehicle infrastructure, announced that its EV charging network will charge its first car during a ceremony at the South Carolina Statehouse at 10 a.m. on Dec. 8.

This year, Plug In Carolina secured $480,000 of funding to deploy a statewide infrastructure for plug-in electric vehicles. Over 80 charging stations are being deployed in Columbia, Spartanburg, Greenville, Rock Hill, Union, Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Blythewood and Charleston. 

In addition, the following two days will include charging-station openings in Blythewood, Rock Hill, Union, Spartanburg and Greenville.
