USA: Brentwood powers up EV charging stations

BRENTWOOD — When Brentwood city leaders entered into a contract with ECOtality to provide two charging stations at city facilities a couple of months ago, some residents voiced reservations about the need since there seem to be so few electric vehicles on the road.

But within the first hour after the power was turned on at the Municipal Center station, a Nissan Leaf was getting juice from a bay at Brentwood’s City Hall, off Maryland Way.

The owner of the electric car had zipped into City Hall for a license unaware that the station was being installed. City Manager Mike Walker said it must have been her lucky day since she had just a 34-mile charge left in her car battery.

“She’s got one just like ours in her house. She was quite surprised to see one here, too,” he said.
