Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Installed at City Hall
For immediate release: April 24, 2017
Three electric vehicle charging stations have been installed at the City Hall parking lot off Calle San Juan De Los Lagos.
Two Level 2 chargers, which can fully charge some electric vehicles in just four hours were installed along with a fast charge station, which can provide an 80% charge of the electric vehicle in just 30 minutes.
The chargers’ installation was funded in part by grants from the South Coast Air Quality Management District with the purpose of promoting the installation of a fast charging network throughout Southern California.
The chargers use mobile applications from two of the largest electric vehicle network providers in the country – Chargepoint and EVgo. These applications allow users to access additional chargers in the area and the state and connect with other electric vehicle drivers.
Payment will be accepted at the chargers with a credit card or through a EVgo or Chargepoint account. For more information, please contact Electric Utility Division Manager, Jeannette Olko, or Electric Utility Program Coordinator, Michael McLellan, at 951.413.3500.
