As part of the city’s continuing commitment to conservation, five electric vehicle charging stations have been installed throughout the city.
Time to Charge
The length of time necessary to charge an EV depends on the rate at which the car charges and the type of charging utilized. For a full charge, charging at a Level 2 EV charger can take a few to several hours and a DCFC can typically charge a Nissan LEAF to 80% in less than 30 minutes.
These stations are part of the Blink Network which consists of over 5,000 electric vehicle (EV) smart-chargers for residential and commercial use. The stations have been "intuitively designed with features and innovations that energize communities around the power of change." Installation was funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Energy. Vehicle charging is done at the owner's expense through membership in the Blink Network. Non-electric vehicle owners are not permitted to park in public spaces designated for EV parking.
