Electric car owners now have two more places they can juice up.
The Blount Partnership and the Black Bear Solar Institute announced they're opening two more spots at the Blount County Chamber of Commerce on South Washington Street in Maryville.
Blount County now has 24 electric car charging stations--six in Maryville and 18 in Townsend.
According to the institute, consumers bought 52,000 gas-electric hybrids in March. That's up from 34,000 in March of last year.
