Electric car owners can have dinner and re-charge the Tesla at a new charging station, recently installed by the Town of Danville, 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, according to a press release issued by the town.

“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.

For more information on the electric vehicle charging stations, contact Assistant to the Town Manager Nat Rojanasathira at (925) 314-3328 or nrojanasathira@danville.ca.gov.
