The article explores Richard’s vision of EV chargers in rural communities and destination sites, starting with the Pacific Coast Highway.  Starting there, the vision is to make electric vehicles the vehicles of choice by providing recharging sites throughout California, then the county and ultimately the world.  The chargers would be run on renewable energy, so every day would be a ‘spare-the-air-day’ and we would be that much closer to a smog free world.

The article also discusses EV charging, “Who Killed the Electric Car”, and adds a quote from Alan Soule, the president of the local chapter of the Electric Automobile Association.

It fits perfectly with the high quality, creative hospitality that Madonna Inn is known for.”

The charging hub will be located in the southwest corner near the hotel’s entrance off Madonna Road. Construction on the site began in March, and is expected to be complete by the end of April.

Once finalized, the SunTrail charge hub will include DC fast-charging options for EV drivers that need a quick charge, and medium speed charging for those planning on staying in the area for a longer period of time.
