New at Lens:
Public-private partners who’ll be submitting bids for state grants within months will want to make sure they get the details right on new charging stations for electric vehicles in Washington. Multiple users should be served at the same time and the equipment needs to be more reliable.
Those were some of the take-aways yesterday from a public meeting (March 16) at the SeaTac Airport conference center. About 40 electric vehicle (EV) owners, advocates and officials attended.
It was first public meeting to gather suggestions on a new state program. The aim is to foster private sector backing of more fast-charging direct current stations along major highways in Washington. Sponsoring the meeting was the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).
