The bad news? Nearly 85,000 Santa Cruz County workers commute to their jobs each day in single-occupancy vehicles, according to the 2010 Community Assessment Project. The good news? Those who plug in rather than fuel up can plan on seeing more electric vehicle charging services around town. Eight electric vehicle charging stations were recently unveiled in Santa Cruz County, and there are plans to install several times that number by the end of the year. Electric cars are not a silver bullet pollution solution, but they’re a step in the right direction.
