Boston Unveils Electric Car Charging Stations

This article is more than 8 years old.

Boston is becoming a friendlier city for drivers of electric cars. The city on Monday is scheduled to unveil three electric car charging stations near City Hall Plaza.

For the regular $1.25-an-hour price of feeding the parking meter at three designated spots on Cambridge Street, drivers will be able to power up the gas-free vehicles for no additional cost.

The goal is two-fold - to make the city a better place for people who drive the environmentally friendly vehicles and to get a sense of how the charging stations are used.

The charging stations look a bit like parking meters, with 11-foot power cords attached.
