Electric Highway now open through Oregon

Friday, February 22, 2013by  Jon Osterberg

Electric cars now can zip from Bellingham clear through Oregon via the West Coast Electric Highway.
   Western Washington's quick-charge stations opened in 2012, and Oregon recently opened stations along its northern stretch of I-5. Once all the California stations are installed, electric motorists will be able to buzz all the way from the Canadian border to San Diego, with stations spaced along I-5 every 25 to 60 miles. Quick-charge stations typically charge electric vehicles in just 20 to 30 minutes.
   Read the Salem Statesman-Journal article, and visit the WSDOT website describing Washington's section of the West Coast Electric Highway, which includes a U.S. 2 corridor to Wenatchee and a fast-charge station at Suncadia near Cle Elum.
