USA: Electric Charging Stations Increasing in Popularity

West Sacramento unveiled its first city-owned electric charging station today at West Sacramento City Hall. The Sacramento region has about 250 public stations.

Proponents of electric vehicles say an increase in the number of charging stations in the Sacramento Region will mean more electric vehicles on the road.

Richard Lowenthal is founder of the charging station company, Charge Point. He says there is a direct correlation between the installation of charging stations and sales of electric vehicles.

“What we see consistently is when people do that -when a city or a business does that- then the cars come. So, this is an important part of the chicken and the egg problem of giving confidence to electric vehicle buyers when they’re on the showroom floor that if they buy this car, they’ll be able to fuel it.”

Industry experts estimate about 1200 private charging stations exist in the Sacramento region.

Mayor Christober Cabaldon says the number of charging stations has doubled in the past year, which will help the region meet clean air standards.
