Got Electricity?

Some people choose a place to live because of the schools.  Others fall in love with a particular style of architecture… or they want to live near a Starbucks, or a dog park.  These days, more and more people want to live and work near car charging stations.  Yup.  You heard that right.

My brother-in-law had his hybrid converted into an electric car (don’t ask me how… I’m fuzzy on the details).  He gets over 100 miles to the gallon.  With gas prices topping $4, he’s looking like a genius.

They are installing a couple of charging stations close to where I live in Bethesda.  It got me curious about other charging stations.  Here’s a list of some local spots.  You can also check out other locations at carstations.com.

There are about 20 other stations in DC alone, right around Dupont Circle and the White House… too numerous to post.  Simply go to carstations.com for a detailed map of charging stations.

Happy driving. Oh, and if you’re in the market for a place to live (close to all of these charging stations, of course), please get in touch!
