EVolve KY, an organization of owners and enthusiasts of electric vehicles, is celebrating the installation of a new electric vehicle (EV) charging station at the Green Building in NuLu.
The charger is fee-free, and the two parking spots designated for EVs are free in the otherwise pay-to-park lot. This is the first of EVolve KY’s Adopt a Charger locations, where they seek sponsorship to provide a charger and installation for free.
According to EVolve KY, hosting an EV station involves similar energy use to running a clothes dryer.
The group will celebrate the new station with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the beginning of its monthly meeting. The public is welcome to join at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 18. And stick around after the ribbon cutting to learn more about electric vehicles.
If you’re interested in sponsoring or co-sponsoring a charger, the typical site install cost is $7,000-$9,000 for a two-vehicle charger.
