USA: Bay Park Square partners up on car-charging units

ASHWAUBENON — A charging station for electric cars opened Wednesday at Bay Park Square mall in Ashwaubenon. It is one of the first publicly available Level 2 charging stations in the Green Bay metro area.

“Electric vehicles were the fastest-growing segment of car sales in the first quarter,” said Cheri Salmon, energy efficiency manager for Wisconsin Public Service Corp., which partnered with Electricharge Mobility of Brookfield and Bay Park Square to install the charging station.

The station is on the east side of the Younkers store at the mall. A typical charge costs $1, but Bay Park Square is absorbing that cost, for now.

Dave Hansen of Electricharge Mobility said it takes about four hours to fully charge a Chevrolet Volt or four to six hours to fully charge a Nissan Leaf, which has a larger battery package. The average shopper spends one to two hours in the mall, which is enough time using a Level 2 station to top off a charge, Salmon said.

The charging station is connected to ChargePoint Network, which allows drivers to find charging stations throughout the United States, among other services. The website is charge point.net, operated by Coulomb Technologies, which developed the charge station. Electricharge Mobility is the distributor for Coulomb in Wisconsin.
