Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations At Sawyer Point
The Cincinnati Park Board, in partnership with Duke Energy Ohio, today unveiled 4 new electric and plug-in hybrid car charging stations located in the Sawyer Point parking lot.
The 4 charging stations will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to drivers of plug-in vehicles, 7 days a week from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. The daily parking rate is $4 but varies depending on events and game days.
Charging your electric vehicle is FREE with regular paid parking. FREE daily parking passes are being offered to the first 4 electric vehicle owners that sign up.
"Thank you to Duke Energy for this latest example of public-private partnerships that the Cincinnati Park Board is committed to in order to enhance our communities. The excitement along the Cincinnati riverfront is a prime example of 'Parkenomics' - ways that renovating and creating thriving parks in urban areas can stimulate the economic growth of a region," stated Willie F. Carden, Jr., Director of Cincinnati Parks.
Jim Henning, President of Duke Energy Ohio and Kentucky, noted that: "Duke Energy is committed to delivering electricity in an affordable, reliable, increasingly clean and sustainable way. The plug in stations at Sawyer Point are an example of the great ways partnering with the Cincinnati Park Board can enhance our area, in an environmentally sound way."
About The Charging Stations:
While home charging is predicted to be the predominant charging location for plug-in electric vehicles, public-access charging stations are being installed across the country. The public charging stations located at Sawyer Point are the first publicly-owned free charging stations in Cincinnati. The Level 2 PEP dual charging stations work with both all-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles. A touch screen monitor guides users through the process.
