Get a Charge Out of This

Ramona Madhosingh-Hector,
Urban Sustainability Agent

If you own an electric car, you’re in luck! You can now charge your vehicle at one of two designated electric charging stations in the west parking lot of the Pinellas County Courthouse in downtown Clearwater.

The two parking spaces or electric vehicle supply equipment sites are reserved for electric cars only. The program is the result of an agreement between the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners and Progress Energy Florida with funding from a Department of Energy grant.

The electric charging stations are part of the Get Ready Tampa Bay campaign to make alternative transportation choices readily available throughout the Tampa Bay area. Progress Energy plans to install 30 stations in Pinellas County, adjacent to government buildings, libraries, city halls, and commercial establishments.

Soon, getting around in your electric vehicle will be a convenient and comfortable driving experience.
