County residents can now take advantage of new electric vehicle charging stations at various county facilities.
Electric vehicle owners near the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s station in Lynwood or the Department of Health Services in Downey for example, can charge their vehicles for up to four hours, free of charge, during the initial year of the program.
“This is an exciting asset for our county residents to enjoy,” said Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. “It is one more step we are taking toward making our county more environmentally friendly.”
By making charging stations more plentiful, the county is addressing one of the stumbling blocks some consumers say they face when they determine if they will buy an electric vehicle. Currently, there are over 20 electric vehicle charging stations at facilities across the county, with additional stations planned for installation in the coming months. Parking rates and restrictions may apply at certain facilities.
