New Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
On August 6, 2015, two new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations were installed at Town of Yountville facilities. The new stations in front of Town Hall and behind the Community Center each have the capacity of charging two vehicles at a time.
The stations were installed as part of a regional program known as the Bay Area Charge Ahead Project, a grant program funded by the California Energy Commissions, which will install over 150 charge ports throughout the Bay Area.
The Yountville charging stations are part of the Chargepoint network of charging stations. The Yountville stations will be on the Chargepoint website as well as its mobile app, giving potential users the ability to find the location of stations and whether they are occupied or available.
These installations are just one of a series of projects the Town has undertaken to achieve its goal of environmental responsibility. The community can also look for new solar panels to be installed at three different public facilities in Town. The Town has also recently formed a Go Green Team, a five person council appointed committee that works toward the development of a Climate Action Plan for the Town. The plan will guide the Town’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the community and within government operations over the next five years. The Go Green Team meets the fourth Tuesday of every month at 4:30 PM at Town Hall—members of the public are always invited to attend.
Questions about the stations or the Town’s Go Green Team can be addressed to Nathan Steele, Management Analyst, at email@example.com.
