COLUMBUS

It took Richard Finan, chairman of the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, about five seconds to connect a new Chevrolet Volt to one of a half-dozen charging stations in the parking garage of the Ohio Statehouse.

And with that short ceremony Wednesday, Ohio became the second state in the country to offer electric-vehicle chargers to their Statehouse visitors.

The underground parking garage has more than 1,000 spaces on several levels. Users will pay about 50 cents per hour to use the stations.

The project was funded through grants from Clean Fuels Ohio, the U.S. Department of Energy, Honda of America, General Motors, Eaton Corp. and Professional Supply Inc.

The total installation cost was about $36,000.
