Exciting news yesterday from CleanTechies’ home city of San Francisco – mayor Gavin Newsom unveiled plug-in charging stations in front of City Hall.
These new stations are intended for the city’s municipal fleet and car share companies Zipcar and City Car Share. The Smartlet charging stations are on loan from Coloumb Technologies – the same company who has provided charging stations to the city of San Jose.
Mayor Newsom is bullish on hybrid and electric cars, from his blog posting announcing the installation:
“Our proactive residents are the country’s earliest adopters of green vehicles. We have the highest number of hybrid cars owners in the United States. Many believe that hybrid vehicles are the future — I believe that full battery electric vehicles are the quantum leap we need to make.
