Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles, if widely adopted, have the potential to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and improve neighborhood air quality. ECO is paving the way for electric vehicles in Milwaukee.

The U.S. Department of Energy Alternative Fueling Station Locator is a great resource to find alternative fueling stations in the United States and Canada.

Electric Vehicle Charging Station Sign

ECO installed four public electric vehicle charging stations in strategic locations throughout the city. With public charging infrastructure, prospective owners of electric vehicles will have added confidence that they can commute and run errands around town without worrying about running out of power away from home. The stations are 100% funded by the U.S. Department of Energy through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The locations use ChargePoint stations by Coulomb, which will become part of the national ChargePoint Network that allows drivers to find and reserve charging stations. The charging stations are enhanced by a rich software environment providing ease of use and a host of other features ensuring the highest level of service for its users.

Locations: (1) City Center, 209 E. Mason St., (2) Brady Street Parking Lot, Brady St. & N. Warren Ave., and (3) 1640 S. 10th St.
