Mission Avenue Electric Car Charging Station
Electric car charging station on Mission Avenue.
Post by Dan Kolbet

Late last month Avista’s first electric car charging stations debuted around Spokane. I’ve been keeping an eye out for anyone plugged into the station located in front of our Mission Campus building. Unfortunately, I have no window to peer out during the day to spot eco-conscious, electric car-charging citizens, plugged into our station. Alas, I’ve seen only one vehicle plugged in and of course, didn’t have my camera to capture the moment.  I’ve also come up empty handed after a few drive bys of our stations at Spokane’s City Hall and at the Stream Plant.

But I know there are electric vehicle owners out there. I met a handful during our debut of the stations. Even Spokesman-Review reporter Pia Hallenberg spotted an electric car owner and featured him on her South Perry Blog last week. I remember that car in attendance at our station debut events too. There’s no charging station on South Perry, but all three stations are certainly within the electric vehicle’s range. (The blog’s worth a look too.)

Have you used one of the charging stations or seen someone else using them to charge up a vehicle? Send us an e-mail or drop us a comment and let us know. Better yet, next time – snap a picture of you, the car and the station – love to see it.
