Electric car charge stations come to Missoula Through Northwestern Energy Partnership

March 11, 2017View for printing

The City of Missoula is making it easier for you to charge your electric car.

The Park Place parking structure on East Front Street will now feature two electric car chargers. The first is in the "lease parking" section on the first level and the second is on the next level and available for hourly parking.

The city partnered with Northwestern Energy, who says Missoula County has more electric cars registered than any other county in the state.

Cut the combustion: Go green with new charging stations

Russ Fletcher and Scott Moses pulled their vehicles into the Park Place garage to find the parking spots empty. Chances are they'll be vacant most of the time, given how they're reserved for electric vehicles needing a quick jolt of power.

But that could change over time.

Joined by NorthWestern Energy, the city of Missoula on Friday unveiled two new electric charging stations, both of which are located on separate levels of the Park Place garage.

The collaboration between NorthWestern and the city marks the first of its kind in the state, and it's one that officials will be watching over the next few months to determine demand.

If it pans out, other electric charging stations will follow.
