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.
