The Environmental Protection Agency has just announced it's giving a $423,000 grant to Houston to help the city boost its electric-car program.
According to the announcement:
The proposal calls for the City to 1) develop an electric vehicle charging infrastructure to be used by both city vehicles and commercial or residential vehicles, 2) implement a bike-share program, and 3) improve the existing bike infrastructure by using solar-powered LED lighting on bike paths to improve safety.
Albuquerque, NM also got a similar-sized grant.
