Transportation officials from eight states are meeting in Raleigh today to brainstorm how to accelerate the use of electric cars.
Asma Khalid: If you drive around Raleigh-Durham, you've probably noticed a few electric car charging stations. But, that's not typical for most states. Since January 2011, approximately 30,000 electric vehicles have been sold in the entire country. So, clearly the Triangle is ahead of the curve. Judi Greenwald is with the center for Climate and Energy Solutions. Her group is cosponsoring the Raleigh meetings.
