MARTINEZ — Cars that soak up volts rather than guzzle gas soon will
have a third place to pull up to the pump in
Contra Costa County.
Martinez is installing
electric vehicle charging stations in three locations — at City
Hall, at the Amtrak station and at Main and Court streets. The city will
unveil the charging stations during a ceremony at 11 a.m. on
Earth Day, April
22, at City Hall, 525 Henrietta St.
The chargers will accommodate 110-volt and 220-volt plug-in electric and
Motorists who bring a compatible plug-in vehicle to the ceremony will
receive a card for 10 free charges.
Martinez joins Pleasant
Walnut Creek, San
Francisco and San
Jose on the network run by Campbell-based
Coulomb Technologies. To use the charging stations, motorists
must subscribe to the firm's ChargePoint Network.
511 Contra Costa, a
group which advocates "green commutes" such as carpooling, walking,
cycling and taking public
transportation, is paying for the charging stations with funds
generated by a half-cent
sales tax in Contra Costa County.
