Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Installed

First charging stations available to public at Clocktower Parking Lot

Electric vehicle owners have a new reason for coming to downtown Danville as the first electric vehicle charging station in downtown Danville is online and available for use by the public.  The charging station, recently installed by the Town of Danville, is located in the Clocktower Parking Lot near the corner of West Prospect Avenue and Railroad Avenue. The station allows two vehicles to be charged at once. 

 

“The new charging station is a welcome amenity to electric vehicle users in the region, many who come to shop, dine and do business in downtown Danville,” said Assistant to the Town Manager Nat Rojanasathira.  “The next nearest charging station along the I-680 corridor is in San Ramon and Walnut Creek.”

 

Electric vehicle charging at the station is free through June 30, 2015.  Starting July 1, 2015, users will be charged $0.30 per kilowatt hour for use.  The three hour parking limit remains in effect for the two spaces. The station is part of the ChargePoint electric vehicle charging network, the largest of its kind in the Bay Area.  One additional station is scheduled to be installed in late summer 2015 in the Railroad Avenue Parking Lot.
