Charging stations for electric vehicles are now open to free enterprise in Whitman County.
Commissioners met during a public hearing this morning to discuss regulations making it possible for consumers and private sectors to install charging stations.
They don’t expect installation everywhere in the 2,000 square miles of county, but Commissioner, Greg Partch thinks they’ll be made available in places like Pullman, Colfax and maybe unincorporated towns like Steptoe.
“It’s more than likely the charging station would be within a city limits,” Partch said. He continued, “We don’t know if there will be any impact, but we want to make sure it is available.”
There are three levels of charging stations they expect: home charging, at work or out in the city.
