Please join the City of Missoula and NorthWestern Energy for a news conference introducing two electric vehicle charging stations at the City' s Park Place parking structure at 201 E. Front St. on Friday, March 10, at 12:15 p.m. News reporters and the public are invited.
The two charging sta tions are situated in the parking structure in short -term hourly parking on the ramp g oing up from Front Street and in the lease area below that. T hey are Level 2 charging stations, whi ch will charge all models of electric vehicle s (EVs) . Level 2 charging stations provide about 10 miles of charge per hour of charging. For these i nitial two charging stations, the Missoula Par king Commission is providing the service free of charge .
"This is just one example of our continued environmental commitment at NorthWestern Energy," said Bob Rowe, CEO. "Coupl ed with our hydro- based, low -carbon generating fleet, electrification of transportation, where it makes sense to the customer, would help further reduce carbon dioxide emissions in our service territory."
Halleleujah. great news for those of us with electric or hybrid cars. My Volt cannot charge at a Tesla station so this is wonderful. I will look for the parking garage with the charging stations now. Alexis
