USA: City Council approves fees for $125K vehicle charging stations

FORT COLLINS – The city should establish user fees for public use of new electric vehicle charging stations, the Fort Collins City Council decided Tuesday night, a program for which $125,000 is budgeted.

The City Council gave approval to the first reading of an ordinance for the city to charge $1 per hour fees for its charging stations. A more powerful charging station installed at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery will cost electric car owners $3 per session.

About $100,000 for the electric vehicle charging stations comes from the city’s capital projects fund, and another $25,000 comes from a state grant, said Tom Vosburg, policy and project manager for the city of Fort Collins.

“With the state grant, the donation of equipment from the private sector and our ability to integrate some of the installations into new construction…, we’re being very good stewards of those resources and efficient in the use,” he said.
