USA: Centerville to offer vehicle charger

Centerville will be the first community in southwestern Ohio to provide a public charging station for electric vehicles when it installs one this fall near the Main and Franklin streets intersection.
The city has been awarded a matching grant from the U.S. Dept. of Transportation through Clean Fuels Ohio to put in the terminal, which will be located at the western end of the municipal lot that can be entered from the west side of Main Street behind Panera Bread or from the south side of Franklin.
The location will be behind Houck Remodeling (39 W. Franklin St.), said Jennifer Wilder, assistant to the city manager. The city hopes to have it installed by Nov. 1.
The station will put Centerville on the map — literally.
“We will be on the GPS map for EV station locations. We will have signage on Franklin and Main streets once the station is ready,” Wilder said.
According to the national Alternative Fuels Data Center, there are 4,064 electric charging stations in the U.S., not including private ones. In Ohio, most are located at dealerships that sell electric vehicles, including the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt and Ford Focus Electric.
The Upper Valley Mall in Springfield (in front of the mall near MCSports) and the Cincinnati Premium Outlets in Monroe (on an island behind Saks Fifth Avenue’s Off 5th store) both provide two-vehicle charging centers at no charge. A spokesperson for The Greene in Beavercreek said locations are being studied for one or more units in time for the winter holiday shopping season.
