On July 9, Cottage Grove city staff completed installing and activating two new electric vehicle (EV) stations, allowing EV owners to now charge their cars while shopping or eating downtown or using the Community Center or library.
Less than two hours after activating the stations, the city had its first customer.
The EV stations are located at the Community Center and in the parking lot across from City Hall on East Main Street.
The stations were funded by a grant from Pacific Power.
