Giant Eagle adding electric car charging stations

imageThis is what was just constructed outside of the big Giant Eagle in Monroeville.  Pretty awesome, although the paint for the spaces next to the two stations are a shade of green that is very hard to read.  It could have been because it was night, or maybe because of the shade, but either way, the spaces on either side of the station are for electric vehicles only.

On a related note, the PA Turnpike is also putting in charging stations:

The state Department of Environmental Protection has announced a $1 million grant award to help develop electric vehicle charging stations along the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The project is in three stages, and we’ll start seeing them during the second phase (Harrisburg to Ohio), and the whole project is set to be done by the middle of 2013.

It’s interesting to see this move towards electric car, and makes me wonder if I’ll ever be able to afford one.  Although I really do like the idea of charging while getting other errands done.  Would that be enough to make you shop at a new retailer?

Happy Single-Person Awareness Day

Today’s post is sponsored by Giant Eagle, who I know what they were going for, but it really came off as creepy:
