First Car Charging Station Opens in the District
The first residential car charging station in the District recently opened in the residences of 425 Mass, an apartment complex on Massachusetts Avenue. Electric cars allow for reduced fuel cost and lower fuel consumption, and support the idea of and energy-independent America. Many policymakers have become strong advocates of this new technology. They have been supporting the use of electric vehicles by offering tax credits and other financial incentives to potential buyers. 425 Mass also partnered with Car Charging Group, Inc. to encourage the new technology.
