According to a PRNewswire release today, DTE Energy is installing 16 public electric vehicle charging stations in Southeast Michigan. Six of these PEV (plug-in electric vehicles) stations will be places in Detroit Metro Airport’s main parking decks, McNamara Terminal lot, and in the Big Blue Deck by the North Terminal. Public charging stations in Ferndale, Mount Clemens, Rochester Hills, Auburn Hills, and Saline will also be installed.
It reports that the PEV charging stations will be free of charge. “There will be no cost for PEV drivers to use the charging stations,” it promises.
Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) Interim CEO Genelle Allen makes a strong argument for why it is necessary to build infrastructure for the use of electric vehicle in Metro Detroit. “With the assembly line for the Chevy Volt just 20 miles down the road, we want our customers to know that we’ll soon be ready to accommodate such alternative-powered vehicles when they’re parked at Detroit Metro Airport,” she is quoted as saying.
