Providing EV charging stations is yet another way to maintain STS as the Airport of choice for regional travelers — and do something good for the environment.
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (PRWEB) December 12, 2018
As part of the Sonoma County Airport (STS) parking lot renovation and expansion, the Airport now offers expanded ChargePoint electric vehicle (EV) charging stations located in both the long-term parking lot and in front of the Airport terminal, and Tesla Supercharger Stations in the long-term parking lot. This invaluable upgrade is another feature that highlights the beneficial ways in which STS accommodates regional passengers, and is doing our part to support clean air initiatives.
North Bay consumers and Airport passengers driving zero-emission electric vehicles is a rapidly growing market. STS is excited to now be a CPO (charging point operator) for both ChargePoint — the world’s largest and most open electric vehicle (EV) charging network, and Tesla, which has a network of 1,359 Charging Stations across the nation.
STS Airport Manager, Jon Stout, says, “We’re dedicated to continually finding innovative ways to accommodate our loyal passengers and upgrade our facilities. One of the greatest benefits of utilizing STS is the hassle-free experience we provide. Providing EV charging stations is yet another way to maintain STS as the Airport of choice for regional travelers — and do something good for the environment.”
The EV charging stations at STS were partially funded through a partnership with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) Charge! Program, which provides funding to public agencies and businesses to expand the network of publicly available plug-in electric vehicle charging stations at workplaces, multifamily dwelling units, and public locations.
