Dr. Peck Garner, of Boone Dermatology, was the very first one to use the charging station — charging up his new Chevrolet Volt.
For Makoto’s customers with electric vehicles, they will be able to receive one hour of free charging. To the general public, charging is $1.50 per hour. To activate the charging station you must inquire inside with the Makoto’s staff.
Though this 240-volt EV charging station is the first of its kind in Boone, it will not be for long. Appalachian State University intends to install two 240-volt EV charging stations very soon.
