They spent $16 Grand on electric car charging stations and only made 13 bucks?

That there is one mighty fine government program!

The city of Des Moines, Iowa has only seen a $13 return on its investment so far after spending $16,000 last year on three electric car charging stations.

The ChargePoint units, installed in front of the Franklin Avenue Public Library and funded by a mix of city, state and library money, have been used just 13 times since last spring, the Des Moines Register reports. Each use generates one dollar of revenue.

But don’t worry, in another 1,230 years they’ll break even!
