USA: Sammamish Welcomes New Vehicle Charging Stations

If you own a Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt or Tesla Roadster, you may be pulling over at City Hall before long. That’s because two brand-new electric vehicle charging stations are now located in the parking lot on the east side of city offices.

And after a ceremonial ribbon cutting on Friday, Dec. 16, at 10 a.m., they’ll both be open for business.

The public is invited to Friday’s festivities

.“If this is the wave of the future, we want to make sure Sammamish is swept along,” said Sammamish Mayor Don Gerend. “We’re really happy to be part of a growing network of public charging stations.”

The two stations, modest in size but loaded with power, were manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, a company working with the Department of Energy to build a network of “charge points” throughout the country. The city also installed two charging stations in the underground parking garage at City Hall to power future electrical vehicles in the city fleet.

Thanks to funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the city paid for installation costs only, which came to $23,000. The stations themselves were free to the city.
