Gordon Pushes For More Electric Car Chargers

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Wyoming is pressing ahead with an effort to deploy electric-vehicle charging stations along interstate corridors and key state highways. Alicia Cox with the Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities Coalition says Wyoming and its neighboring states face unique challenges, where people can travel hundreds of miles without reaching a city that has charging stations.

Governor Mark Gordon recently signed a memorandum of understanding to advance the infrastructure project, joining governors from Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah in similar efforts. The goal is to bring in a mix of public and private investors to make it possible for electric vehicles to travel seamlessly both within and between mountain states.
