It’s no surprise that a fully electric car will soon be as popular as hybrids are today. To make this endeavor successful, you need a way to charge that car when you’re not at home. In steps NEC and the Portland General Electric Company.
Our two companies have joined forces to open the first quick-charge electric station for electric vehicles in (you guessed it) Portland, Oregon.
But don’t expect to get in and out too very quickly. An 80% battery charge takes about 20 – 30 minutes. This time was proven when Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski took the Nissan Leaf (also co-develop by NEC) for a two-day test drive and charged up at the station during a press event.
Think AAA will soon offer roadside electric charge service?
