Hooray for electric cars! And hooray for this nice shout out for the Center from Pasadena Star News about electric vehicle super-charging networks in the region.
From the article:
Tesla is teaming up with the city of Pasadena to build the largest electric vehicle super-charging network in the western United States. The project will sit atop a parking garage near the city’s convention center and two major shopping districts. The leading seller of electric cars, also known for its banks of exclusive charging stations along Interstate 5, will install 24 fast-charging plugs and lay the conduit for an additional 20 fast-chargers for other EVs on the roof level of a city-owned parking garage at 155 E. Green St., located on the northwest corner of Marengo Avenue and Green, according to Margie Otto, spokesperson for Pasadena Water and Power…
“I think it is phenomenal that Pasadena is doing this. It will be a real quill in their hat,” said Patrick Terrill, a resident of Atwater Village who is working with the city of Los Angeles to add fast chargers. He said Burbank’s Town Center Mall has 20 DCFCs on the rooftop of a public parking garage.
