Roanoke could be getting electric, for cars anyway.
This coming Monday, Roanoke City Council will vote on whether or not to accept an electric car charger.
According to documents filed with the city, the charger is worth $38,000 and can charge a car battery 80 percent in 30 minutes.
The so-called "Quick Charger" would be the first one owned by the city and placed right in the heart of downtown Roanoke next to the Wells Fargo Tower.
City leaders say the location is very intentional,
"We wanted to have a high profile area so folks could see that we are truly interested in making a difference," said Ken Cronin, Sustainability Director with Roanoke City.
An organization called Virginia Clean Cities is making the donation.
City council will vote on whether to accept the donation this coming Monday at its 2 p.m. session
