San Francisco will offer free EV charging at 19 city-owned parking garages and at the San Francisco International Airport until the end of 2013 . Next month, the city will install more than 80 plug-ins to encourage the purchase of EVs. As well, officials hope the chargers will reduce fears of not having enough juice to get from point A to point B.
The day will soon come when you are driving your Nissan Leaf or other electric vehicle, running low on juice and need to power up stat. You’re no where near your home, have a meeting in less than an hour and running on a 5% charge. Your standard recharging station will take at least 4 hours to get anything on the meter, until now.
