Employees and visitors who drive their electric cars to Google’s Silicon Valley campus can charge them up in the company parking lot.
The web-search giant installed 120 charging stations in an effort to convert 5% of its parking for electric vehicles.
The program’s architects say they expected it to take longer than it did for any of its 8,000 headquarters employees to begin driving electric cars to work, but a few cars began appearing at the charging stations as soon as they opened.
A Google spokesman said the company is trying to encourage the use of electric vehicles among its large employee population, and that several have said the charging stations convinced them to buy the cars.
