USA: Los Gatos Has Four New Electric Car Charging Stations

Los Gatos Vice Mayor Barbara Spector makes the announcement to the delight of clean tech enthusiast Mike Calise.

Los Gatos now has four new electric vehicle charging stations in downtown parking lots, Vice Mayor Barbara Spector announced during the May 21 Council meeting .

The town was looking at different vendors and manufacturers, including Campbell-based Coulomb Technologies, which has received funding from a federal Department of Energy grant to help municipalities provide the stations to the public.

The access points are located at:

South parking lot across the street from the Toll House Hotel
Parking lot 5, between Elm and Main streets
Parking lot 3, between Royce Street and Grays Lane (two at this location behind the former Domus building)
Each station cost the town about $2,000 to install.

Los Gatos resident Mike Calise, founder and CEO of EVAdvise—an independent electric car advisory firm that has no partnership agreements with any company—has provided market analysis for the town pro-bono to educate its residents on the emerging technology.

“It’s been a long time coming, but the Council, manager and staff’s patience on installing community EV chargers has finally paid off,” Calise said.

Los Gatos was wise to wait for federal and state funding that ultimately paid for the charging station equipment and installation, and now that the volume of EVs is increasing, the town can support the growing demand, he explained.
