Charge it up

Wooden Cross Lutheran Church, Woodinville, Wash., is the site of the first publicly accessible, federally funded, 240-volt electric-car charging station in the Puget Sound area, according to the Seattle Times.

The congregation's attitude of "greenness" prompted Elwood J. Carlson, pastor, to pursue installation of the station.

Carlson said the congregation expects people will use the station, which is off a major intersection and located in the church's parking lot, to top off their electric vehicles with a two- to four-hour charge.

Initially the electricity will be free.
