An electric car charger at Jeff Jones Town Square is operational after its installation two weeks ago.
According to City Administrator Jennifer Stapleton, the new charger supports charging two cars at a time at either parking spot adjacent to the device. The city is considering re-striping the parking spots to make the service more obvious.
It is powered by the electric feed at the town square, which itself has energy costs offset by the Solar Roadways panel installation. There is currently no cost to use the charger.
“It is connected to the city internet so we can monitor usage, and we would have the ability to charge in the future if the City Council determines that is appropriate,” Stapleton said.
