Draper City announced four new ChargePoint electric vehicle stations (level 2) that are ready for use. Two stations are at City Hall on Pioneer Road, and two stations are at Draper Park near the basketball courts. Each station is able to charge two vehicles, so up to eight cars can be changing at one time when all the stations are in use. An electric vehicle owner just needs the ChargePoint app to use the stations. It costs $1/hour for the first four hours, and it only takes two hours for a full charge.
The new stations will add to the growing infrastructure and mainstream support of electric vehicles that more residents are using to reduce their carbon footprint. This also helps take care of visitors who drive through Draper who need more charging location options. Now they are able to do so on city property. By supporting the use of electric vehicles in our community, it will help reduce CO2 emissions and improve our overall air quality in Draper.
Draper City couldn’t have accomplished this project without our supporting partners:
- Leaders for Clean Air (Kate Steincke) provided a grant of $10,000
- Utah’s Division of Air Quality (Mat Carlile) provided a matching grant of just over $23,000
Thank you to our staff who worked so hard to make this project a reality:
- Eric Lundell, our city engineer who led the efforts in building the ChargePoint stations.
- Kellie Challburg, who wrote and managed our grant applications to secure the funding for this project.
