USA: Electric vehicle charging station installed in Rohnert Park

The City of Rohnert Park installed its first electric vehicle (EV) charging station last Wednesday, Nov. 21, upon the approval of the City Council. Located in the City Center Plaza parking lot, the station should be available for use in a couple of weeks, according to the city’s energy coordinator/project manager Johnny Chung.

The cost of purchase, installation and management of the EV charging station is fully-funded through a $37 million ChargePoint America Energy Grant Program, sponsored by Coulomb Technologies, to provide EV charging infrastructure to nine selected regions nationwide. The program is made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and administered through the Department of Energy.

A user fee will be established to recover electric usage and operating costs at an estimated rate of $1.75 for the 1st hour and $1.25 per hour after that.
