5,000 free in-home charging stations from Ford Motor Company

Here is some good news -

Electric car charging stations are being offered for free through the Department of Energy (DOE) funding award and ChargePoint America.   

ChargePoint America will offer home and public charging stations to individuals and businesses. Charging stations are planned to be offered to businesses in nine areas of the United States – Washington (1), California(3), Michigan (1) , New York (1), Texas(1), Washington D.C.(1), and Florida (1).

Florida Businesses –  


In Florida, Orlando is currently the only designated city, but if enough interest is shown, there could be others.  Any business (Hotels, shopping centers, restaurants, public parking lots, etc.) that has an ideal location for the public to charge their electric vehicle(EV) can participate in the charging infrastructure that is being put in place to participate in the electric highway.  Tampa, FL is currently working on becoming an EV friendly community. Hopefully others are soon to follow.
