First Home Car Charger Installed


A Beaverton family is one of the first in the area to receive a high-speed electric vehicle charger in their garage. David Hopper has about 900 miles on his new Nissan Leaf and says he'll never go back to gas-powered cars. “Ecotality” is installing Blink Chargers; like the one in Hopper's garage, in 50 Beaverton-area homes, and more than 1100 throughout the Willamette Valley, Eugene and Corvallis. Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle says the next step is making charging more convenient. Hopper drives his Nissan Leaf around town. When more charging stations are available, his family will stop relying on a gas-fueled car for longer trips. The charger station roll-out is partially funded by funds from the federal government.
