LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Electric car owners will soon have more places to charge their vehicles in Lincoln.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1ttedUj ) Lincoln Electric System is installing two charging stations next week in a city parking garage that’s under construction. The stations should be operational in September.

Each station inside of the parking garage will have two charging ports, but one will be reserved for company-use only. The other three ports will be open to the public.

Customers will have to pay a $2 flat rate to charge their vehicles.

The company’s manger of energy services says there are between 100 and 150 electric cars registered in Lancaster County. He says that includes plug-in hybrid cars and all-electric cars.
