More hybrid vehicle owners driving on Virginia highways will be able to pull over and plug in soon.

State officials and Dominion Virginia Power are working together to provide hybrid vehicle charging stations at a limited number of rest areas. The first one was installed earlier this month on Interstate 64 at the westbound New Kent Safety Rest area.

The charging stations can charge up to four vehicles at a time. The utility company will work with the Virginia Department of Transportation to identify other locations for charging stations.

Gov. Tim Kaine's office said on Tuesday the partnership comes at no expense to the state.
