USA: Santa Rosa readies its electric vehicle charging stations

Santa Rosa finally is ready to start charging people to charge their electric vehicles.

For $1 an hour, eco-conscious drivers of Nissan Leafs, Chevy Volts and similar vehicles soon will be able to plug in to some of the 13 charging stations the city installed in 2010.

The stations are a key component of the Sonoma County’s growing “Electric Trail,” which aims to create a regional network of public and private chargers that will encourage wider adoption of all-electric vehicles.

Santa Rosa’s 220-volt charging stations have been sitting idle while the city and manufacturer Coulomb Technologies hammered out a service contract.

Following the Santa Rosa City Council’s approval of the deal Tuesday, the stations should be on-line by the end of the month, said Jon Merian, the city’s fleet superintendent
