USA: Will Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Give Businesses a Jolt?

EV advocates said six charging stations approved by the Novato City Council on Tuesday could lead to more people shopping as their cars charge up.

Donn Davey bought his electric vehicle a year ago and loves passing gas stations as the prices creep up to $4.20, $4.30, $4.40 per gallon and beyond. His plug-in Nissan Leaf hums past those pumps and gets re-energized at home or at charging stations.

So Davey, a Novato resident and vice president of Sustainable Novato, was happy to hear that the Novato City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to install six grant-funded electric vehicle charging stations on city property as part of a pilot program.

“That’s a win-win-win,” he said after learning of the approval and that the stations are funded almost entirely by grant money. “It’s laudable. Good for them.”

Based on public input, the city staff recommended two EV charging stations at the Zenk lot (on Reichert Avenue behind Grant Avenue businesses), two outside of Novato City Hall, one outside the Novato Teen Center/Novato Gymnastics Center and one outside the Hamilton Community Center.
