CARY, NC - McDonald's will debut a NovaCharge ChargePoint Network electric vehicle (EV) charging station July 14 in Cary, N.C., according to Reuters.

Only ChargePoint Network subscribers can use the facilities with a ChargePoint Smart Card that allows them to charge their EVs at any ChargePoint station worldwide. Basic access to ChargePoint stations is free for the rest of 2009 as the EV charging infrastructure is built.

Other green initiatives at the Cary McDonalds include LED light fixtures, special parking spaces for hybrid vehicles, drought tolerant landscape plants, and an Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard designed to inform customers about the building's environmental efforts.
