Today Dwane Van Epps, Public Works Director for the City of Chelan and Plug-In NCW validated two new haL2 charging opportunities in downtown Chelan. Located behind City Hall on the parking lot directly across the street from the Library, these units will charge at 208 Volts and 70 Amps. There is also one 120V 15A outlet for EVs that can use this L1 charging option. Mayor Bob Goedde gave up his parking spot to allow these units to be placed at this location. If you stop in to charge, take the opportunity to thank him and his staff for making this happen.
This is the first partnership with a city government and it has been rewarding. One unexpected benefit is that the city has enhanced the site by removing old fencing and commissioning this mural, highlighting the EV charging spots. The mural depicts the Chelan power house and wind turbines. If you look closely you will notice that the physical conduit from the load center/meter base is incorporated as connecting lines from the power house to each of the haL2 chargers. The area light is in the hub of the largest wind powered generator. Plug-In NCW has two new installations in progress, one in Douglas County the other in Chelan County.
