Apex unveils electric car charging stations

APEX — Charging stations are scattered throughout the Triangle, allowing drivers of electric cars to plug in and power up. But Apex has the state’s first free fast-charging station on public property.

The town’s new Eaton DC Quick Charger can power the Tesla, the Nissan LEAF and the Mitsubishi i-MiEV to about 80 percent capacity in 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the battery size.

That’s much faster than the typical plug-in unit, which can take three to four hours.

Apex unveiled the units Friday in the public parking lot on Saunders Street, across from the police station and behind the Salem Street Promenade.

Having the electric stations downtown could help spur economic development, officials said.
