It's All Happening Tomorrow, Wed Nov 10th

Philadelphia's first public EV charging station will be dedicated in the morning.  The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 10 an at South Port Plaza’s Liberty’s Service Station, located at 1600 S Christopher Columbus Blvd. Philadelphia, PA 19148. Of course there will be EV’s on display, and the charging station will be a ChargePoint supplied by Coulomb. One of the new standard J1772 chargers was passed around the charging station discussion I was moderating at the Energy Fest in Sept, and everybody who held it, including me, just grinned at the feel of the future in our hands.  Now's the chance to see one of those babies hooked up and charging!  For more information please call organizer Tony Bandiero at 215-990-8200.
