Electric Vehicles Get Preference in New Palo Alto Homes

In an effort to be more green oriented the Palo Alto City Council unanimously approved a requirement for all new homes built in the city to be pre-wired to charge electric vehicles.  Estimates place the additional cost per home at approximately $500 which would be significantly less than a retrofit of an existing home for an electric charging system.

It is estimated that 1,000 new electric vehicles are sold in California every month with Palo Alto being one of the leading cities in electric vehicle purchases.
