EV Charger Station Coming to City Hall

As electric vehicles become more popular—there are more than 1 million plug-in vehicles currently on the road in America and over 50 different models to choose from—demand for electric charging stations is growing rapidly. The opportunity to charge electric vehicles at City Hall will not only benefit employees and visitors to City Hall and the School District, but also local residents and motorists traveling the I-15 Corridor. The City of Norco has obtained $140,000 grant funding from the Southern California Incentive Project (SCIP), a program of the California Energy Commission, for the installation of two chargers at City Hall that will provide almost a full charge in less than an hour.

The two chargers will be part of the ChargePoint system, the largest network in the country—approximately 100 Norco residents are already registered on the company’s mobile app—and will be “universal” (i.e. not restricted to any particular auto manufacturers). The chargers will occupy three parking spaces and will be accessible to disabled motorists. The contractor is expected to begin work on the project in February.
