Morro Bay adds charging station for electric vehicles

Morro Bay has a new electric vehicle charging station.

It is located at the Chamber of Commerce’s new offices at 695 Harbor St., across the street from the fire station. Open to the public at the end of March, the charger has already served several users.

Just last Sunday, a group of eight BMW electric vehicles congregated in Morro Bay to enjoy the weekend. One of the drivers, Jason Bartlett of Los Altos, said “one of the things that made this possible was the chamber's charging station and the one down the street by the transit office."

The charging station is the second one for Morro Bay. The first was installed near the transit office in June 2012. These charging stations are free and open to the public to recharge electric vehicles.

The station was funded by a $4,000 electric vehicle infrastructure grant from the California Energy Commission.
