Solar-Powered Electric Vehicle Charging Carport Proposed in Canal Park
Friday, September 23, 2016
Minnesota Power and Enbridge today announced a partnership with the city of Duluth and Hunt Electric to bring a solar powered electric vehicle (EV) charging carport to Duluth's Canal Park for public use.
The project will bring nine EV chargers covered by a 54-kilowatt solar panel canopy to the Endion Station parking lot. It will also cover parking for additional vehicles in Canal Park. Four Level Two dual-port charging stations will offer eight plug-ins that will charge a vehicle in two to six hours, depending on vehicle make and model. The ninth charger will be a more powerful DC fast charging station capable of charging a vehicle in 20 to 40 minutes.
