Snohomish PUD Unveils Two Fast Electric Vehicle Chargers In Everett

July 13, 2022

Everett

There are two charging stations in the 2300 block of California Street.

It was all smiles at the ribbon cutting.

They’re almost ready for use and hopefully that will happen by the end of the month but today Snohomish PUD cut the ribbon and unveiled two new ChargePoint electric vehicle fast chargers right in front of the PUD Headquarters building at 2320 California Street in Everett.

The PUD says the chargers are the first of their kind in Everett, Washington and are capable of fully charging the average electric vehicle in 30 – 60 minutes. There is a cost to charge your EV with the rate at this station at 43 cents per kWh and a charge of 40 cents per minute of occupancy after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Once open to the public the chargers will be available on a 24-hour first-come, first-serve basis. The PUD will add the site to their map of Public EV Charging Locations once the two chargers come online.

The PUD received a grant of over one-hundred-fifty-thousand dollars from the Washington State Department of Ecology to help cover costs. The City of Everett also made parking and sidewalk modifications on California Street to accommodate the two chargers.

The project has taken longer to bring to completion than first envisioned as many speakers at the event referenced.

“This is just the start,” said Tanya (Toni) Olson who is the President of the PUD Board of Commissioners.
