Rest stops powered by renewable energy planned in Ohio
Ohio will now have two more rest stops. And unlike the ones seen, these two new locations to rest your backs will be green! Planned by the Ohio Turnpike Commission, these rest areas will be powered by renewable energy sources. Using wind and solar energy, they will also have an E85. These two service plazas will be built on both the sides of the turnpike with E85 facilities that will enable electric cars to juice up. Besides this, parked trucks in these areas will also enjoy cable and Internet hookups. These facilities with gas pumps, restaurants, and restrooms will open their doors next year.
The Ohio Department of Development will also offer grants for additional E85 facilities, though these details haven’t been released. Ohio has 64 E85 retail outlets and powering them up with green energy will sure help save a load of energy.
