People who drive electric cars now have another place to charge their vehicles in the Four Corners area.

A Hopi development group partnered with Tesla Motors to bring a charging station to the reservation. It's located at the Moenkopi Legacy Inn and Suites across the highway from Tuba City.

Hotel marketing director James Surveyor says he's hopeful the charging station will bring more tourists to the remote reservation.

Other charging stations in the Four Corners area are located in Farmington, New Mexico, and Blanding, Utah.
