NORFOLK, VA – Are you ready to get charged up? Then head to downtown Norfolk, where the first batch of electric vehicle chargers donated to the City of Norfolk by electric car maker Tesla have been installed in Waterside, MacArthur Center, Bank Street and Town Point garages.
These charging stations will expand the number of car charging options already available in Norfolk and reflect the city’s commitment to providing environmentally-friendly transportation options. This increase in the availability of charging stations boosts Norfolk’s status as one of the most progressive cities on the east coast and a vibrant destination for drivers of electric vehicles.
The chargers are both universal and Tesla-specific. They are available for charging electric cars to those who park in city garages. Users will be charged only the regular garage parking rate — there will be no additional cost for charging the vehicle – it’s FREE to the public. Installation of the chargers will continue in other city garages in coming months.
We want to know: How will you get charged up? Do you charge at MacArthur Center and head in for a little shopping and some lunch? Or will you plug in at Town Point Garage while you head to the park for a festival or a concert? What about Waterside garage, where you can eat, drink and be merry while you charge for free?
