City Expands EV Charging Options

Oct 20, 2017 - ​Acting on a two-for-one upgrade offer from its vendor, the City recently upgraded its oldest charging unit (8 years old) at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center (MICEC), and added an additional unit at City Hall.

The new equipment from ChargePoint adds capacity by allowing two vehicles to charge simultaneously from the same station, using separate cords, both capable of delivering power at 240volts. At this rate, a current model Nissan LEAF can be filled up (i.e. 80 miles of range) in about four hours.

The upgrade means the City now has five 240volt stalls and one 120volt stall at City Hall, and two 240volt stalls at MICEC; all City charging costs $1/hour.  The MI School District has also recently expanded its charging equipment, and other private business offer charging in Town Center too.

As of June 2017, there are 373 registered battery-powered EVs on Mercer Island, up from 156 just three years ago, according to the State's Department of Licensing.
