Electric Car Charger Installed at Morgantown Marketplace Pavilion

Electric cars are becoming more popular and now they can "Fill Up" in Morgantown.

Friday, an electric car charger was installed at the Morgantown Marketplace pavilion on Spruce Street.

The marketplace solar panels provide energy to the city's power grid, which in turn provides power to the charging station, according to the City of Morgantown.

The charger can charge two cars at a time and will be operational next week. The solar panels will also power homes and businesses that get power from Mon Power.

The charger and solar panels were donated to Morgantown by the Mountain Institute.
