USA: Electric charging stations open

County officials gathered Monday to unveil three new electric vehicle charging stations. The EV stations are available to county employees and the public and are accessible to people with disabilities.

“Marin County is all about sustainability, and this is another step toward being sustainable,” said Saaid Fakharzadeh, the county’s assistant director of Public Works.

The three new EV charging stations are located on county property at the middle arch of the Civic Center, near the Exhibit Hall and also at the Health and Wellness Campus.

Fakharzadeh said the funding for the stations stems from President Barack Obama’s stimulus plan and is a pilot project to gauge the public’s response.

“We applied to see what the usage is like,” he said, adding that a network of stations throughout the county may play a part in the area’s overall efforts to be energy conscious.

The pilot project is part of a nationwide program funded through the Department of Energy to provide a network of charging stations for electric vehicles.
