Gov. Ron DeSantis plans to put electric car charging stations at every service plaza along Florida’s Turnpike.
He made the announcement Wednesday in Central Florida.
Construction is scheduled to begin by the end of the year. Currently three turnpike service plazas offer charging stations, including Turkey Lake in Central Florida.
But the governor says he wants electric car charging stations statewide.
“The goal is as you see what we’re doing on the turnpike, now we want to be able to have similar fast-charging stations across all of Florida’s major highways.”
