Electric Vehicle Charging Station Installed at Hinton Center


Development officials say downtown Hinton is expected to benefit from a new electric vehicle charging station at the Hinton Technology Center.

A recent announcement by the New River Gorge Regional Development Authority says the station is within walking distance of retailers and restaurants.

There is no cost to use the station.

The authority says the Summers County Planning Commission expects usage of the station to begin gradually. Demand is expected to increase as the electric vehicle community becomes aware of the station.

The authority says the planning commission will consider additional electric vehicle charging stations in the downtown area as demand increases.
