Salt Lake City is boasting 28 new electric vehicle-charging stations across that for the next nine months could charge the eco-friendly cars for free. City Council members would have to approve the fee waiver, Mayor Jackie Biskupski has proposed in hopes it would incentivize electric vehicle drivers to use the stations at the existing and new sites. While the council deliberates the idea, drivers will pay $1 plus $0.1 per kilowatt hour to charge. “This is an exciting upgrade,” Biskupski said in ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Tesla employee alleges physical, racial harassment in suit 28.3.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology

A Tesla employee has filed a lawsuit against the automaker, claiming he was physically and racially harassed while working on the assembly line at the company’s Fremont factory. The employee, DeWitt Lambert, who is black, filed suit in Alameda County Superior Court, alleging that he was subjected to racial slurs and lewd behavior by his co-workers “on a continuous basis from the summer of 2015 to the spring of 2016.” In a statement released Monday, Lawrence Organ, an attorney with the California Civil Rights Law Group who is representing Lambert, said that because of this inaction my client is claiming psychological harm and medical problems. Tesla said that “several employees” were terminated based on what the company learned in conducting its investigation, and that Lambert has been suspended with pay so the company can finish its investigation into Lambert’s claim that his co-workers threatened him with violence.

California's clean-air problem is a lot bigger than just Trump 27.3.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
(Bloomberg) -- A chorus of skeptics is warning a new state objective -- to slash greenhouse-gas emissions by 40 percent from 1990 -- could simply be out of reach, no matter what Washington does. Even if power plants, ports, farms and factories continue to reduce toxic output, there’s little chance of hitting the target without an explosion in green cars and trucks. There is not a natural level of EV demand that is anywhere close to what California is seeking,” said Eric Noble, president of the CarLab, a product-development consulting firm, who has called state policies “a train wreck. California regulators and politicians hardly see it that way, pointing to technological advances that are cutting alternative-car production costs and a flood of new no-emission models coming down the pike. [...] they don’t pretend what they’re trying to do could be accomplished naturally, without government intervention. “We’ve made incredible strides in improving the air quality, in improving mileage efficiency, not ...
