    Thanks for this good news. Question: “The state operates only one charging station of six across the sate.” Where are these charging stations? I’m in the market for a new car within the next couple of years but live in a condo complex without access to an outside outlet. I would consider a plug-in hybrid if there were a reasonable way for me to charge frequently enough.

      Here’s a website that allows you to search for charging stations. http://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity_locations.html
