“Dear PoP,

Had you seen this yet? Electric car charging station in front of the Reeves Building on 14th St. NW”

An official unveiling is taking place at 10:45 this morning. From a press release:

“The District Department of Transportation and Coulomb Technologies invite you to attend the unveiling of the first curbside public Level II charging station for electric vehicles in Washington, D.C. Now electric vehicles can drive up, charge up and be on their way!

Please join us for an unveiling of the first public curbside ChargePoint America* 240v charging station for electric vehicles. This will be the first of hundreds of planned ChargePoint curbside stations installed in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

Check out electric cars from GM and Ford and see a demonstration of how the charging station operates as we showcase the next step for sustainable and green transportation alternatives in the DC region.”

Do you guys think this is the future?
