Ariz. company opens first vehicle charging station

Posted: Updated:
PICACHO, Ariz. -

A Scottsdale-based company is opening the first of 26 planned charging stations for electric vehicles along Interstate 10 in Arizona.

Officials with GOe3, Secretary of State Ken Bennett and members of the Clean Cities coalitions are having a ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday at the Bowlin Travel Centers' Picacho Peak Plaza between Phoenix and Tucson.

The company says travelers can make a 20-minute stop at Picacho to charge up their electric vehicle with either a DC fast charger or 70 amp charger.

GOe3 officials say the Arizona charging stations will be part of a network of 1,000 stations that will stretch along I-10 as well as I-8 and I-40. They say they want to make coast-to-coast travel via electric vehicle a reality by 2015.
