Say Hello to our Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station!

The Salem Block EV Station is getting good use!

In July, Salem Oregon joined communities such as Corvallis, Eugene and Portland in ECOtality’s push for emissions-free driving.  Under the The EV Project, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations were installed in various locations our city- including one here at The Salem Block!

The EV charging stations are publicly available  and located at the following sites:

• The Willamette Heritage Center at The Mill

ECOtality is the project manager of The EV Project and will oversee the installation of approximately 14,000 commercial and residential charging stations in 18 major cities and metropolitan areas in six states and the District of Columbia. The project will provide an EV infrastructure to support the deployment of 8,300 EVs. The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy through a federal stimulus grant, made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
