USA; Meridian Township announces first public electric charging station for vehicles

?MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP — Meridian Township’s first public electric vehicle charging station is now operating.

Drivers can extend their driving range by “topping off” their electric vehicles at the new charging station at Celebration Cinema’s new Studio C!, according to a press release issued by the township.

The station, which can charge two vehicles simultaneously, is located on the east side theater.

Maggie Striz-Calnin of Greater Lansing Area Clean Cities Coalition informed the Meridian Energy Team about a federal grant for charging stations in late 2012.

The township contacted businesses with available electrical lines to hook up to charging stations, which the township paid for using a grant.

The timing was good for Celebration Cinema, which was nearing completion of Studio C! and hoping to install a charging station.

The township’s station is a ChargePoint model, which has more than 10,000 chargers in use across the country at more than 1,000 companies.

Because the chargers are connected to the Internet, drivers can locate the nearest station, check pricing and determine availability with a simple application for mobile phones, downloadable at
