Sticker shock at the pump in 2011 and the fact that this year's Car of the Year at the Detroit International Auto Show was the electric powered Chevrolet Volt seem to indicate that Americans are beginning to take electric cars seriously. Nissan and Ford have joined GM in producing electric vehicles but the biggest limitation seems to be: How far can you go on the batteries?

The State of Washington is tackling this issue head on with their participation in the West Coast Green Highway that will one day stretch from Vancouver, Canada to Baja California. Washington is building a series of rapid recharging stations that will release the electric cars from the urban grid and let them breath the air of wide open spaces. My guest, Tonia Buell, Program Developer and Communications Manager for the Washington State Dept. of Transportation, explains the scope of this great green highway and the schedule for implementation in 2011.
