ORIGINAL STORY - January 2, 2019

Electric charging station will be free to use for 2019

 

EasyPark is kicking off the New Year by adding Anchorage’s first downtown electric vehicle charging station. 7th & G parking garage will be the staging place for the charging station on the first floor of the garage.

 

“EasyPark has been focused on offering parking amenities to our downtown customers,” said Brian Borguno, Parking Director for EasyPark. “We’ve seen the presence of electric vehicles increasing in our garages and the EV station will provide a free amenity to a growing market.”

 

This is the 3rd electric vehicle charging station that has been added in the State of Alaska. Worthington Ford in Anchorage and the City of Cordova have stations that are currently being used by the public.

 

“We will be monitoring the usage for the first year and if the stations shows a high use, we will be installing more stations in downtown Anchorage,” said Brian Borguno.

Most electric vehicle batteries will be charged from zero to full in less than 3.5 hours with the Siemens 30 Amp Level 2 VersiCharge electric vehicle charger that has been installed in the 7th & G parking garage. This indoor/outdoor rated charger, has a user-friendly design with a 20 ft. flexible cord for easy reach.

The new electric charging station will be free to use through the end of the year.
