Michigan is about to show the world just how practical plugging in can be. According to Vice Chairman Tom Stephens, General Motors and its partners plan on installing over 5,300 home and workplace charging stations all over the state for Chevrolet Volt and other EV owners. Of these, 2,500 will be provided by DTE Energy and will be for home-use.
In order to make the home charging stations more accessible to homeowners, DTE Energy and Consumers Energy are offering to take care of up to $2,500 of the tab, which involves both purchasing and installing the stations into homes. GM plans to have almost 350 charging stations in place for employees at its facilities in Michigan, of which 100 have already been installed.
