#FF #Russia Gas Stations Ordered to Provide Chargers for Electric Cars #renewables #climate | Clean Electrons | Scoop.it
Gas stations all across Russia have been ordered to adapt their facilities to provide chargers for the country's electric vehicles — which number just a few hundred in total.
Jada Williams's insight:

In Russia they are putting chargers for the electrical vehicles. All gas companies are required to have these chargers at their gas station by 2016. Since the Japanese Mitsubishi company sold russia the eletric cars. There will be almost 100 electric car chargers.

In Russia, there are gas stations that charges cars instead of gas. I think this is a great way to save gas and save the environment. There are few hundreds of them all over Russia. The question is, how much would it cost? would it be cheaper or would it be more expensive?  The world would change in a great way if almost every singe gas station had a charger that charges cars instead of gas. 

Travis Reede's curator insight, September 14, 2015 11:01 AM

I like the idea of having charging stations for electric cars. having charging ports will be better for people who have electric cars instead of using unleaded fuel. But this is only in Russia but it also needs to start happening in the United States.

stephanie mckenzie's curator insight, September 14, 2015 11:18 AM

With Russia being a huge country, it makes a huge impact. It would make or at least make a start, on a clean eniroment there and an example around the would.  I also think it would make people of Russia think of having electrical cars. I think that would make going through the vast land of snow and nothing a little easier. I also think that if Russica can do it so can the world like China. China would probably have the biggest impact.

Charging with solar energy all day err'day. This is an interesting concept "Make a wall adapter that has it where you use 100% solar energy for charging appliances". Plus the whole hook the young people on it is also great. If you start someone on something when they're younger (in this case solar energy) they'll stick to it longer.

But I feel as though the lake wasn't the cause of the fish being sick and nearly dying. They should just nurture the fish back to health and then leave them alone.

I tink having a cumputer or phone lasting for a week would be amazing because it would reduce the energy we use on charging these devices. I also think that it would make gamers of the work happy because now they can game nonstop for a week instead of having to stop every 5-10 hours to charge the computer. I think the proucting of anythign would increase because people could stay up all night working or even all week without worring about heir cumputer shuting off. I know it wpould help students because im not going to lie i forget all the time to save my essay than the cumputer shuts off. I think its the start of something huge.

I like this article because it uses energy that is clean on something that we all use ever day. The street lights we see at night time can now be powered by a wind turbine. I would like to see that happen today but we all know that it will take time and it will not happen now.
