I ran across my first electric vehicle in the Triangle yesterday. It was the 100% electric Nissan Leaf. I noticed it parked at a charging station in the parking lot outside of the North Raleigh Whole Foods off Six Forks Road.
There are two charging stations at this location. They are located on the side of the building next to the huge silver rainwater harvesting cistern. At this time there is no fee for using these chargers. You may have noticed a second car is also parked by a charger. Unfortunately it was not an electric vehicle. Just somebody too lazy to park in a regular parking spot.
To view a map of all the publicly available the charging stations for electric vehicles (EV) in and around Raleigh head on over to the Raleigh Connoisseur blog and check out his “Raleigh EV Charging Station Central” site.

Thanks Mike! I wouldn’t mind taking one of these babies for a test drive. Wonder if there are any EV charging stations in Cary?
There are a few. Notably at the McDonalds on Kildare Farm Rd. Hop over to plugshare.com to see all the charging stations in the area. The EV Charging Central site is great (thanks for letting me know about that by the way), but plugshare.com is crowd-sourced so usually the data there is pretty accurate and current.
Thanks for the information about the charging station at McDonalds in Cary. I also appreciate the info about the plugshare.com website. I will definitely check it out. Thanks! Appreciate you checking out my blog!
I have been charging at that location since late November.
There are over 30 charging stations in the Triangle now. If you see a blue Volt, that’s probably me.

Very cool. Thanks for the wiki link. Hope you enjoy the Volt. I have heard good things about them!
