Cincinnati and its private partners on Tuesday announced the latest places to charge your electric vehicle: Cincinnati Zoo, University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, Cincinnati State and Findlay Market.

On the same day, Newport on the Levee announced it has three charging stations on the P1 level of its parking garage. Just last month AAA added one on Orphanage Road in Fort Wright. Another AAA charging station on Red Bank Road in Fairfax opened in 2013.
