Wheeler wants lawmakers to beef up state’s electric vehicle infrastructure

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler says Oregon needs to improve its electric vehicle infrastructure to spur more people to make the switch to electric vehicles. “There’s people who say I’d like to take my electric vehicle to Burns, but if there’s nowhere to charge it, it’s a long walk back,” Wheeler said. Wheeler says that he’s hoping the city can put pressure on the Oregon Legislature to put charging stations throughout the metro area and state.
