Charging an electric vehiclePort installs Level 2 electric vehicle charging station at administrative offices

VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Port of Vancouver USA, in its continuing commitment to leadership and environmental stewardship, has installed a two-unit, Level 2 electric vehicle charging station at its administrative offices for public and staff use.

The charging station, purchased from ChargePoint, provides adequate charging for electric vehicles that will be at the port for at least an hour. There is a two-hour limit on use of the station to ensure adequate availability, and the usage charge is 22 cents per kilowatt hour.

“Our electric vehicle charging station is a great amenity we can offer the community and our staff, and a very tangible way for us to continue supporting the sustainability that has long been a core value for the Port of Vancouver,” said CEO Julianna Marler.

The Port of Vancouver is dedicated to the health of the economy, our community and the environment. As a sustainable port, we look at our operations in an all-inclusive manner that allows us to remain fiscally and operationally responsible, both within the boundaries of the port and in the larger community.

The port details its sustainability efforts each year in its “We Can!” report, a plan that started in 2008 with the goal of meeting today’s global economic, environmental and social needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.
