The Austen BioInnovation Institute is doing its part to keep things green.
The Institute is providing a vehicle charging station at its parking lot on Main Street in downtown Akron.
It is used by employees, and for vehicles owned by the city of Akron and FirstEnergy Corp.
It takes four hours to charge a medium-sized vehicle, just in time to drive to lunch. The institute pays for the electricity. (Michael Chritton/Akron Beacon Journal)
