A U.S. government program that pays military veterans to install Eaton Corp.-produced electric-vehicle charging stations is expanding, Green Car Reports says.
Under the VetCars program, which involves the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Community College of Baltimore County, former soldiers are being trained to install EV chargers across the country, according to the publication. The program also involves the U.S. General Services Administration ( GSA) and the company Autoflex, which installs the stations.
Charging stations have already been installed in the first five test cities: Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Detroit and Washington, D.C. Under the program, which has been in the works since October 2010, more than 60 stations have been installed at various Federal departments and agencies.
