Some locals are riding the light thanks to one local dealership. This great story is from Mlive and it’s about the new solar-powered Chevy Volt charging station at Al Serra in Grand Blanc. Al Serra is the only dealership in the country to have one.
Genesee County now is home to the first solar-powered charging station being tested nationwide by General Motors for the battery-powered car that’s been hailed as a symbol of the automaker’s rebirth.
Such stations soon could become commonplace at any of the more than 2,000 Volt dealers nationwide — but the first was at Al Serra Auto Plaza in Grand Blanc, said Mary Alice Kurtz, a renewable energy manager for GM.
