SolarCity, Tesla Link On Central Coast Charging Stations

Foster City-based SolarCity and San Carlos-based Tesla Motors are building a network of four charging stations between San Francisco and Los Angeles, to service electric vehicle owners, SolarCity said today. In a deal with Rabobank, SolarCity said that it has installed charging stations in Salinas, Atascadero, Santa Maria and Goleta, in order to allow all-electric cars to travel between San Francisco and Los Angeles. SolarCity said the charging stations will provide a full charge in one-third the amount of other charging stations. The new stations will be at Rabobank's bank branches along the 101 Freeway.
