American Indian pueblo gets electric car charging station
Posted May 11
SANTO DOMINGO PUEBLO, N.M. — An American Indian community is getting the first electric vehicle charging station along the Interstate 25 corridor between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
The Public Service Co. of New Mexico says the charging station will be placed at Santo Domingo Pueblo thanks to a partnership with the utility, Ugo and Nissan.
Officials say the Santo Domingo station will ease anxiety for electric vehicle drivers traveling between two of New Mexico's biggest cities.
Santo Domingo Pueblo Gov. Robert Coriz says the new charging station is part of the tribe's commitment to meet the growing needs of the traveling public.
The charging station is the latest in New Mexico. In recent years, motels along Route 66 have installed similar stations.
