The City of Culver City is pleased to announce the installation of six new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the Veterans Memorial Building (4117 Overland Boulevard) and Senior Center (4095 Overland Boulevard)!
“Installation of these new charging stations is another example of Culver City’s commitment to fostering the use of electric vehicles to improve air quality by reducing vehicle emissions,” commented Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells. “We’re thrilled to offer this amenity to our community as a means of making EV charging more accessible to everyone who lives or spends time in our city.”
A collaboration with EVgo (ee-vee-go), the new charging stations are designed to serve the needs of all EV drivers, regardless of their vehicle. Most EVs will gain an 80% charge within 30 minutes of charging with the DC Fast Charge stations. With these installments, the City hopes to accommodate EV drivers needs while encouraging them to travel to and throughout Culver City. As their cars charge, EV drivers can visit Veterans Memorial Park, The Wende Museum, the Plunge, nearby businesses or the Senior Center knowing their EV will get them to their next destination.
The new charging stations are powered with 100% renewable, carbon-free electricity. Three Level 3 Fast Charging Stations at each location offer both the SAE Combo and CHAdeMO connection standards. Additionally, the PlugShare smart phone app now lists these publicly available charging stations on a map when EV drivers search Culver City along with displaying their real-time availability.
EVgo is the largest developer of public DC Fast Charging for EVs in the nation, and their robust network of charging stations features the fastest public charging available and provides drivers with the confidence they need to purchase an EV and discover an incredible new driving experience.
Knowing that 58% of greenhouse gas emissions are generated by on-road transportation, the City is confident that the new EV stations will help further the City’s goal of reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, the installations will serve the City Council’s strategic goal to enhance mobility and transportation. Learn more about the City Council’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan.
