One indeed is the loneliest number, and that's the number of publicly accessible electric-vehicle charging stations in Juneau, Alaska, but city officials want to change that. The city's Economic Development Commission is trying to find ways for the Alaskan capital to have the most charging stations per capita in the US by the end of the year, Plug In Cars reports.

The city, which has a population of about 32,000, is ripe for plug-in vehicle adoption because of the relatively short distances that can be traveled by road from there as well as the fact that gas and diesel shipments to the area are as much as 20 percent more expensive than typical, pushing up gas prices. The city's electric sources are largely hydroelectric, further boasting its green-cred potential.

Already, Alaska Electric Light & Power has enacted an EV incentive program involving reduced electricity rates for car-charging. Still, city officials say more dealerships and technicians that are certified to work on plug-in vehicles need to be added to the city in order to further adoption.
