Nissan continues to strongly support the rollout of CHAdeMO in the U.S.

Recently, the city if Huntsville, Alabama received a $10,000 donation from Nissan which it used to cover part of the purchase cost for a CHAdeMO charger.

For Huntsville, this unit is its first DC quick charger.

Joy McKee, the city's landscape management director, told AL that Huntsville is home to approximately 50 plug-in electric vehicles.  McKee adds:

"But that's growing every day.  This is where the future is going - alternative fuels and alternative ways to take care of our earth."

Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle and members of the city's Operation Green Team drive plug-in vehicles donated by a local Ford dealer.  Of course, those vehicles can't use CHAdeMO, but the station is open to the public and the cost is reasonable at only $2 per hour (actually the charger is free to use, but one must park in a metered spot with a $2 per hour fee.)

Huntsville hopes to add 5 more DC quick chargers by the end of the year, provided that there's strong demand for initial charger.
