Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Now Open at City Buildings
Published on 18 October 2019
The City of Centennial has recently installed two electric vehicle charging stations funded through a Charge Ahead Colorado grant from the Regional Air Quality Council.
The stations are located at the Centennial Civic Center building at 13133 E. Arapahoe Rd. and at the Centennial Public Works building at 7272 S. Eagle St. The charging stations are now open to the public and customers will be charged $0.15 per kWh for the first two hours of use, followed by $1.50 per hour after the first two hours. To use the stations, connect the charging cable to your vehicle, download the EV Connect mobile app from your phone’s app store, create an account, select the stations you’re using and click “Begin Charge” in the app.
For those who are interested in learning more about electric vehicles, there will be a free Electric Vehicle Workshop on December 4 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Centennial Public Works building at 7272 S. Eagle St. Please register through this link: Centennial EV Workshop EventBrite Registration
