Pennsylvania ranks 19th in number of public electric car charging stations with 270 outlets—make that 274.
The Mall at Robinson Thursday unveiled four new car charging stations powered by solar panels mounted above the mall’s food court entrance.
Mall General Manager Beth Edwards said the stations take about 2 hours to fully charge an empty battery. That’s six times faster than the average at-home charge.
The solar panels are “actually offsetting the eight kilowatts that are needed for four full charges of the station,” Edwards said.
