Two EV Stations Coming to Portola


Two EV charging stations are coming to downtown Portola. The city council unanimously moved to enter into an agreement with another party, EV Range Inc, to install, maintain, and run two stations. The council says the move will help draw people over the bridge into town and help patron local businesses. The two spots have been designated south of the Caboose in downtown Portola, where there are currently two handicap spots in the parking lot near the Annual Christmas Tree lighting. The effort to bring the charging stations has been two years in the works. The stations will not bring the city any direct revenue but again hope to attract visitors to stay and spend while in town.
