Rain, rain

Some good news for Houston and the future of electric cars:

Houston to be ground zero for Reliant, Nissan deal
Reliant Energy and Nissan Motor Co. have agreed to work together and make Houston the launch city for the two companies’ efforts to promote the use of electric vehicles.

The two companies will also advocate for policies that make it easy for consumers to make the switch from gasoline to electric-powered vehicles, and will work together to establish the infrastructure of charging stations needed to support a critical mass of electric vehicles.
