The solar EV charging station, which will be located in Governor’s Square, will be the first of 11 EV charging stations built in the Caymans, according to CINS. It’s expected to be up and running by the end of 2011.
Charging stations boost business “The charging stations will help to boost local businesses that have them on their premises,” Felder told CINS. “When you take your electric car to Camana Bay or Kaibo, Governors Square or Fosters Food fair, you are also going to spend money while your EV is being charged.”
Cayman Automotive is the first authorised EV delear in the Caribbean, and recently introduced the much sought after ZENN, the Wheego Life, and Tazzari sport vehicles.
Felder told CINS that a full line-up of the Caribbean’s first 100 percent electric trucks and vans will be introduced later this year as he keeps his fingers crossed that the necessary legislation will reach, and be approved by, the Legislative Assembly this September.
