Richmond Mayor Performs Official Plug-in at Electric Vehicle Charging Station at Richmond Omni Hotel

October 19, 2012

Mayor Jones performed the Richmond Omni Hotel's first official electric vehicle plug-in on Wednesday, October 17.

Virginia Clean Cities and Richmond Electric Vehicle Initiative (REVi) coordinator, Michael Phillips, hosted the forum on electric vehicles.

Mayor Dwight C. Jones performed the Richmond Omni Hotel’s first official plug-in last Wednesday following the Business Case for Electric Vehicle Charging Station Forum, hosted by the hotel and Virginia Clean Cities. The forum provided an overview of electric vehicles and made the case for installing electric vehicle charging stations – the $2,000 charger installed in the Omni Hotel has already paid for itself in guests that solely chose the hotel for the need to recharge their cars.
