Charging up: What Iowa will need as it sees more electric vehicles
Monday, December 10, 2018
Funding, customer education and partnerships all viewed as key
When Roger Brown had his first electric car, a Nissan Leaf, he would have to drive to Cedar Falls — more than 30 miles from his home in Allison — to charge the vehicle at a car dealership.
“When I got the car, they constantly either had it blocked by their vehicles and, right now, they have a lock on it even,” said Brown, a 32-year-old computer technician. “I had to be towed multiple times from that location because that’s where I expected to charge to get home. That was frustrating.”
