Plug It In.....Locally




The state of Washington announced that it will open nine roadside electric-car charging stations.  This could be the first sign that states are openly backing alternatives to gas powered cars.  The project will cost roughly 1 million dollars to construct.  Charging stations will be found from on the I-5 from Olympia to Oregon.  Perhaps Oregon will follow it's neighbor state to the north in installing similar stations.  It seems that the charging stations could be a trend that catches on quickly if the stations prove to be efficient.  Regardless, this is a step in the right direction.  All of us should emplore new technology that offers alternatives to fossil fuels.  By taking the time to research new fuel efficient and electric cars, we will see that there are several options besides our gasline dependent automobiles.  This is just one example of renewable energy technology that is coming to the forefront of every day life.
