City of Dublin powers up two electric vehicle charging stations

The city of Dublin installed two public-use electric vehicle charging stations at the Dublin Community Recreation Center.

The city of Dublin has taken upon itself meeting the recharging needs of environmentally conscious drivers.

The city installed two electric vehicle charging stations at the Dublin Community Recreation Center to meet what it calls a growing interest in alternative fuel vehicles.

The $28,400 units are free of charge to the public.

Half the cost of the project is shared by Columbus-based Clean Fuels Ohio, a statewide nonprofit that promotes the use of clean fuels and energy-efficient vehicles.

The city’s first publicly owned charging station is part of its overall push for clean energy.

“The market is growing for electric vehicles,” city of Dublin spokeswoman Sue Burness said. “Auto manufacturers are meeting that interest and we are looking at providing that service to our residents.”

Charge times vary depending on the vehicle but Burness said the two stations are “level two,” meaning they charge faster than a typical overnight home station.

Clean Fuels Ohio on its website shows 70 public-use electric stations around the state, with about a dozen in Central Ohio, operated by Walgreens, the city of Columbus and several auto dealerships.
