Edmonds charging stations reach energy-saving milestone

In late 2011, the City of Edmonds completed the installation of six public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. These stations were obtained at no cost to the city because of a federal grant provided to Coulomb Industries through the provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act . As a condition of the grant, Coulomb gave these stations to qualified organizations, which then installed and activated them.

As demonstrated by the accompanying chart, the energy provided by these EV charging stations since their launch passed a significant milestone during this year. In August, the cumulative avoided production of greenhouse gases attributable to the use of these six stations surpassed a metric ton (2204.6 lbs). The ciity expects the savings of emissions to continue growth as electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids become more common.
